Blonde hair with highlights is a classic style. If blonde isn’t your natural hue, a colorist may suggest getting highlights along with all-over color, so that the result looks softer and more natural. There are a variety of highlights to choose from: Blonde hair with brown highlights (or lowlights), blonde hair with red highlights (if you’re looking for a gentle way to try out the strawberry blonde style) and dark blonde hair can suddenly appear many shades lighter with highlights scattered throughout.
You can also choose any color as your highlight shade. Ed’s note: We love trending icy or “griolet” looks these days, such as purple, lilac, peach or even silver, while you’re at it!
