Balayage, shadow root, melt, tone, gloss, glaze… There are many different techniques out there with many different names. With all of the trends from the 90’s coming back, it should be no surprise to you that the term “frosted” is coming back with them.

Best Highlighted Hair Ideas
If you generally like your hair color, but want to add it some depth, dimension and trendy feel, you’ll probably go for highlights, those created with a freehand technique, with no foil. They will give you a sun-kissed, natural look or soft transitions of color if you are using pastel or bright neon hues. Highlights and lowlights allow creating very sophisticated hair color solutions which are hard to copy, but you can come up with your own complex hair color that will be better than the source of your inspiration. Brown hair with blonde highlights and blonde highlights in red hair are the ideas most women have already tried. Some stuck to them – so good they turned out – and some moved on to test something more extravagant like purple highlights in dark brown hair or peek a boo highlights in some vivid hue. These can seem challenging on first thought, so you may want to start with a more modest choice, like red or caramel highlights. We have loads of ideas for you regardless of how bold you want to go with your highlights!

It can be very subtle and absolutely in tune with your natural hair color. Or you can become a “bronde”, for instance, which is a blend of a brunette and blonde, why not? Besides, there are tons of interesting solutions with full/partial highlights and lowlights. Here is a gallery of 50 most eye-catching ones. [click to continue…]
