Long dark hair with blond highlights looks really chic because of the contrast between the two colors. The light blond color against the dark brown is stunning, and with the right cut you can show off your two-tone hair in the best possible way. Take time to consider the different cuts before you go anywhere near the scissors, so you're sure about what you want before making the snip.
A cut with longer layers that go all around your head but are focused at the ends creates volume and lift in your hair. This cut works on all hair textures and shows off highlights all around your head. If you only have blond highlights on the bottom layer of your hair and want to show them off, just pull up a section of hair on one or both sides of your head after styling and pin it against your head.
A blunt cut works well if you've got really limp hair, because it instantly adds lots of volume, especially around the ends of your hair. This style works especially well on straight hair; flat iron over your locks when styling to show off the full length of your hair and get a sleek, chic look. Pair your cut with blunt-cut bangs and look like you just stepped off the hottest fashion runway.
With wispy layers, the layers are soft and subtle. Your hair appears to be all one length, besides a bit of layering around the front. It's a really pretty, wispy look and is one of the best cuts for showing off two-tone hair. Whether you have your blond highlights focused at the front to frame your face, at the back or even underneath your hair, this cut shows your highlighted hair off just right.
A cut with heavy layers with the shortest layers hitting about chin-level takes a lot of the weight out of your hair. You still have long hair, but it's not as heavy, so you can rock waves and curls and they'll actually stay put and last instead of falling out. Ask your stylist to thin out the ends when making the cut, so your hair looks bouncy and swingy, never flat.
