Many women and even some men are choosing to have highlights these days to add texture and give life back into the hair. Highlights make the hair move, make it fresh and interesting. Not everyone is confident to go for an all over color change, which is why highlights are so popular – they just add touches of color, usually lighter that will enhance your natural or base color.
You have a lot of choice when it comes to highlights. The biggest choice is how noticeable you want to have them. For example, if you prefer subtlety then you could add some lighter brown into dark brown hair. For an even more dramatic look, one that will give a lot of contrast is dark hair with blonde highlights.
