2. HONEY BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS
How do you feel about honey highlights? It’s a shade easily worn by many, regardless of skin tone and complexion. It’s also a fun way of lightening the mood when you have naturally dark hair. Remember the highlighted areas will need to be bleached, so go for a less is more approach if you want to give your hair a break … It probably needs one.

3. BLONDE & CARAMEL HIGHLIGHTS
There’s a big reason why the balayage ombre is such a big hit right now – it’s because the root regrowth allowance is phenomenol. You won’t come across another hairstyle as easy to maintain as this one. As long as your highlights don’t start right at the roots, with a darker shade ombre-ing into a lighter one, you can allow for more natural growth shades at the top. This means you can go an extra few weeks before salon appointments. That’ll give your hair a break, and it’ll save you a few hundreds dollars if you keep the look up for a few months too.

5. BEIGE BLONDE
If you want to add some colour, but not too much colour, opt to have those highlights framing your face, rather than being scattered all around your face. It will stop you from needed to play around with your hair too much, saving it from treatments that are gong to be detrimental to its health. It’ll be softer to pull off too.
