Choosing Highlights for Your Dark Hair Color
However, such wild shades also depend on the profession one may be in. For instance, a brunette in media will perhaps be able to do more justice to blue highlights than one who is a lawyer.
>>If you wish to get red highlights, you may choose one that has either a blond undertone (strawberry) or one that has a black undertone (cherry). These give the hair a third dimension without disrupting the natural appearance of the hair.
>>Those who prefer something more subtle, try shades like honey blond or auburn.
Such shades work well for those who have a hair length that goes beyond the shoulders, and also for lighter, as well as darker shades of brunette hair. These would look good on layered hairstyles, as these give the highlights a whole new appeal, thereby making them more prominent.
Once a color has been decided, it is important to keep in mind the thickness of each hair section. These should not exceed half an inch, else it fails to look natural and the entire look will appear patchy.
On the other hand, doing this procedure oneself with a kit, may lead one to choose the wrong shade, and ultimately result in a disastrous look that may make it difficult to live with. So under expert guidance, choose the right shade for yourself, and grant yourself the long desired makeover.
