A solid hair colour can definitely give you fabulously chic vibes, but if you’re looking for something a little different (with a bit more colour) we’ve got something in mind… Focus on your face with some fancy face-framing highlights. Not only are they a fun way to spice up your hair colour, but if placed strategically they’re the perfect style to keep you the centre of attention.

To give you some inspiration we’ve put together a list you can try.

Sassy and sensual, this choppy curly haircut pairs perfectly with some golden highlights. Not only will the cut draw attention to your face, but the addition of highlights will give you a subtle and alluring glow. We’d say it’s for sure one of the best face-framing ‘do’s to try.

To keep your curls looking polished (without compromising natural movement), spray the look with some TONI&GUY Finishing Shine Spray.

Adding some thick honey-blonde highlights to the length of your dark hair will definitely catch the eye. Place the blonde highlights along the sides of the face to draw attention to your eyes and mouth — they’ll completely pop against the contrasting black or dark brown strands.
