Tired of the same old blonde highlights? Looking to create some depth and movement with the same old, same old? Try some creative coloring by adding a darker color underneath beautiful blonde highlights.
Darken only the section of the head from the top of the ears to the nape of the neck at least three to four shades darker than the natural color from root to end for a nice contrast. Highlight the rest of the hair as usual, but add some darker lowlights sporadically using the same color as was used underneath.
This is great for over-processed hair looking to keep the highlighted effect, but giving the hair a much needed break. It also looks fabulous in any type of up do.
Brenda, pictured in the slide show is a medium to dark blonde naturally. The underlay of color used was a dark warm brown infused with light blonde highlights. She wanted something different and when her hairdresser recommended this she was immediately on board. This is the second time she is having it done because she “loves it”. She only needed a small amount to touch up the previous color and a slight trim to even up her long layers says her stylist, Long Island native D’Anne who works from her home in Valley Stream and can be contacted via her facebook fan page.
