Highlights can work wonders on your hair, brighten up your face, and really bring a whole new perspective to you.

Light dyeing

Girls who prefer something a bit more low-key or subtle can try light dyeing, which involves dyeing the hair lightly in lines.

This gives a bit more dimension to the hair and can be used on both short and long hairstyles to really bring a delicate look to your strands.

Caramel-coloured strands stand out against dark brown hair. This really shows how any colour can work with the light dyeing method.

Earring dyeing

Earring dyeing is what is sounds like, where the hair is partially highlighted by the ears, giving it an almost ‘earring’ effect.

This sort of highlight can work with long hair, but we think it looks best on short hair because of the stark contrast it gives.

Pink earring dyeing against brown hair gives off a sweet and youthful vibe.

Hair loop dyeing

Have you ever seen any the kind of highlights that sort of frame the face? That could be hair loop dyeing, where the hair loop around the face is highlighted.

It gives an edge to even those with natural hair colour. This is also a highlight trend that is especially suitable for short hair styling.

Rather than committing to dyeing your whole head of hair, try choosing a bright and neon colour for your hair loop highlights instead.

Brightly coloured hair loop dyeing look good on girls with short hair too. Besides blue, pink or green could also work with naturally black hair due to the contrast.
