Chunky

Chunky highlights are a retro, eye-catching way to style your hair. Chunky highlights are usually a contrasting colour from your natural hair colour. For instance, a popular way to wear chunky highlights is add wide chunks of blonde highlights to a brown, red or a dark blonde hair colour. Hairstyles for chunky highlights often leave the hair down or pulled half back so that they are more noticeable. The highlights are more noticeable when the hair is straight, but it can also be worn wavy or curly as well. Bangs are also a good look for chunky highlights because they add to the funky look of the style.

Face-Framing

Face-framing highlights are used to accent the face. By lightening the hair around the face, it will lighten your facial features as well. The key to successful face-framing highlights is making sure the colour of highlights compliments your skin tone instead of washing you out. Your stylist will advise you on the colour that works best for you. Another way to choose a colour is to look at pictures of yourself when you were young. If you had light hair as a child, use that colour as a guide because it will be most natural for you. To wear face-framing highlights, ask your stylist to cut some longer face-framing layers in the front of your face. Wear your hair down, or when you pull it back, allow a few wisps of hair or fringe to fall around your face.

Natural

Natural highlights are a good lightening method if you want your hair colour to look very natural. Natural highlights are applied in fine sections all over the head, from the top roots to the hair on the underside. Natural highlights are chosen in a colour close to your natural colour, and look like your real hair colour. If you have natural highlights, you can wear your hair in any style. Up, down or pulled halfway back; curly, wavy or straight. Because your hair is coloured all over, you don't have to worry about exposing roots or hiding certain sections of your hair.
