If you’ve got dark locks with gorgeous highlights, you have a ton of different options available when it comes to showing off your hue to its full potential. Famous fashionistas such as Hillary Duff, Vanessa Hudgens and Jessica Alba know how to work their brunette and blond combo with enviable results. From adding flirty layers to changing up your hair texture, there are lots of different ways to ensure your locks steal the limelight they deserve.
Fellow dark-haired beauties with subtle highlights, such as Victoria Beckham, have worked a tousled bob on the red carpet with seriously chic results. Ask your stylist for a softly layered bob that falls between chin-length and shoulder-length to get this look for yourself. The soft layers will ensure those strands of color poke through to contrast your dark tresses. Wear your bob tousled and wavy to draw attention to your gorgeous hue. Finish with a touch of shine serum to give this look that glossy gleam it demands.
Keep things long, carefree and quirky and rock an asymmetric lob. This ‘do consists of shoulder-length choppy hair that is slightly shorter at the back. Ask your stylist for lots of choppy, razor-defined layers throughout to make your differing shades stand out. Pull this look together and team with long-angled, textured bangs to frame your face and highlight pretty facial features. Add a few expertly placed highlighted strands in your bangs to brighten up your complexion.
The simple bob is a versatile way to wear medium-length locks. Give your style an added injection of drama and attitude with some seriously choppy layers. Ask your stylist for a chin-length bob with lots of heavily textured layers throughout. Plenty of razor-cut layers will give your locks a whole heap of style, definition and texture. Use a little hair wax to manipulate those tapered ends into position. This choppy ‘do will result in lots of peek-a-boo flashes of color.
Follow in the footsteps of actress Rachel Bilson and show off your gorgeous tones with a softly layered style. Keep your locks shoulder-length and layered for a super-versatile look. Add shorter, face-framing feathered strands around the front to keep your style flirty and feminine. This style works equally well on gals with dip-dyed locks as well as gals with finer slices of color. Wear your tresses sleek or curly to suit your daily mood.
