Spring is a time of freshness and renewal. With the change of seasons nearly here, it’s a great time to change up your look. One of the best ways to do this is by updating your hair color with highlights. They allow you to get a completely different look without changing your natural color.
Choosing a Color for Your Skin Tone
Choosing the right highlight colors for your skin tone can even out your complexion as well as brighten your hair color. If your skin tone is warm you have golden and yellow undertones. Choose cooler colors for your highlights to lighten and brighten without adding too much warmth. If your skin tone is cool you have undertones of blue and pink. Choose warmer colors to compliment your hair color without making your complexion appear washed out and ashen.
Best Shades for Dark Hair
Mocha, caramel, and chestnut are great highlight colors for brunettes. Avoid going too light to prevent an unnatural streaky look. Using a couple of different complementing shades will give you added depth and dimension to your current color.
Best Shades for Light Hair
Perfect colors for highlights in lighter hair include honey, champagne, and platinum. If your hair is very light you may opt for some darker lowlights as well to add even more depth of color and the appearance of more volume.
Shades for Redheads
Copper, strawberry blonde, and auburn are excellent choices for highlighting red hair. You could also opt for a deep burgundy or black peekaboo highlights for a daring and eye-catching effect.
