Dark brown hair with blonde highlights can be beautiful too. Most people think that only the blondes that can have highlights. However, those who have brunette can also have great highlights, like blonde. Keep in mind that lighter shade that is combined in darker tone will not only give you the right contrast, but also add dimension. You can chose the types of highlight, whether it is blended look or streaky style. Moreover, if you want to look more trendy, you can get ombre effect. This is a gradient look with lighter shade in the root and it gets darker as the hair reaches the end. Bronde, which is the combination of brown and blonde, can also be the best if you like ombre effect.
If you want to color your dark brown hair with blonde highlights, you should bring along the pictures of celebrities who are actually your inspirations to get the color. Do not just describe and explain to the colorist verbally since he/she may not know exactly what you really want unless you show them the pictures containing hair color that you want. Next, when adding highlights, you should also know that it should be multi dimensional instead of one dimensional only. That is why it is not recommended for you to have a huge blonde wash as the highlights in your hair. It should be the combination of lighter and darker strands mixed underneath. You should ask your colorist to weave at least 3 different shades or the highlights. It can be two highlights and one lowlights or vice versa. If you want to get blended color, you can get the highlights in your face area.
Now, you should also consider the technique. There are basically two techniques of getting highlights. It may be foil or balayage. The former is the traditional coloring one, while the latter is the modern technique. Foil highlight is good, however, it can reach the deepest spot in your hair and the result is not as perfect as balayage’s result. That is why, if you want to get ombre effect and more modern look, it is better to get balayage technique for dark brown hair with blonde highlights.
