If you’ve always been hesitant to even consider trying frosted hair because it’s a little too 90’s-reminiscent for you, you’re not alone. Not all 90’s trends can or should be revived, but today we’re making a case for frosted hair. There are a range of options available for choosing if you’ve decided to say ‘yes’ to getting on board with reviving this icy blonde trend.
Each of these styles requires different levels of commitment, intensity and transformation. Some options are more subtle while others will quickly take you from 0 to 60. Have we convinced you to get in on this trend revival? Read on for inspiration:
1. Thick Bleached Highlights
Take it straight back to the original way this look was worn with thick bleached highlights. Maintain your dark brown color on the bottom layers of your hair for a high contrast impact.
2. Super Thin Highlights
If you’re not quite ready to go all out, then consider a more subtle way to wear this look. These subtle highlights help you nail this trend in a lower impact way.
3. Thin Streaks
If the previous look is still a little too much for you, then consider taking an even softer approach by evenly scattering a few subtle highlights throughout your hair. Combine this understated look by using your curling iron to create beautiful curls and hold them in place with a few sprays of Dove Style+Care Flexible Hold Hairspray.
4. Just in the Front
Brighten up your face and your hair by adding a few strategic highlights just to the front of your hair.
5. Frosted Bangs
If you’re not planning on growing out your bangs anytime soon and you’re not sure how to make frosted hair work with your style, then use this photo as inspiration. Carry the highlights over into your feathered fringe for a soft and easy look.
6. High Contrast
Go all out and really get into this trend by asking your stylist for high contrast chunky highlights. Maintain the cool color of the blonde strands of hair by regularly shampooing with Bed Head by TIGI Dumb Blonde Purple Toning Shampoo.
7. Blend Those Grays
Use frosted hair as a transitional style as you move into the gray hair territory. Double up on caramel and silver tones to help make your transition smooth and easy.
8. Chunky Highlights
You can still make a statement by opting for a more subtle contrast: choose chunky highlights that are just a few shades lighter than your natural color.
9. All-Over Highlights
These all-over highlights bring this look straight to today with an even distribution of light blonde color throughout all of your hair.
10. An Even Dusting
Skip the individual highlights (chunky or thin) and opt for an even dusting of frosted color instead. Keep this even color fresh with Nexxus Color Assure Rebalancing Shampoo and Conditioner.
