#MetroBeautyWatch: Check Out These Gorgeous Hair Highlight Ideas From Your Favorite Celebrities!
Hair trends come and go, but highlights are forever!
Highlights, or the partial coloring of specific hair strands to create typically a lighter overall appearance, are one of the most popular hair coloring techniques today. And if you’re anything like us that love a good hair color job but want to add some depth, dimension and an overall fresher feel, this is most likely a good option for you!
But before you book your next hair appointment, we recommend that you get a hair color consult with a professional first, if you aren’t sure with what it is exactly that you want. Your colorist will know what to do to show off your haircut and highlight your features, and will be able to find the right hues to flatter your skin tone.
During your consult, be sure to mention any other hair treatment or processing you’ve done before, such as history of hair straightening, and at-home dye jobs because the new chemicals might harm your locks or cause your hair to break.
Highlights will look great if you have a great base hair tone, and don’t want to mess too much with your natural hair. Often peoples’ introduction to hair coloring, highlights will just enhance your locks by adding streaks that are a shade or two lighter than your natural color. They look the most dynamic when the stylist uses at least two different shades.
To help you decide, we've gathered a bunch of hair inspiration from three pretty celebrities—each with different highlight styles. Be prepared to fall in love with your next lowlight, babylight, or blonde highlight look!
- Liza Soberano
Babylights are soft, super-fine highlights that are placed around the hairline and the edges of your face like Liza Soberano’s. Think of them like strips of bright tinsel, glinting throughout your hair, resulting in a subtle-very-fresh update.
- Denise Laurel
Foil highlights, like Denise Laurel’s, are the traditional highlights you’re probably the most familiar with. Foils give your hair an all-over brighter, fresher look, as if you just spent a week vacationing at the beach. They typically require touch-ups every eight weeks.
- Janine Gutierrez
Like Janine herself, her blonde highlights are a breath of fresh hair! Her highlights add dimension, warmth and softness to her naturally dark hair. The rich blondes and browns in the highlights match incredibly with the shine and sparkle of her brown eyes.
