#2: Blonde Hair with Orange Highlights
Try switching up your blonde hair by adding in orange highlights. The combination of the colors is one of the best looks for a client with a spunky attitude.

To showcase this nontraditional color, wear your hair with lots of texture to give it a very grunge, undone look.

#5: Chunky Highlights for Older Women
Chunky highlights for older women are the perfect hair color service to blend out your grays, especially around your face. While normal highlights are also a great option to blend, adding more chunkiness around the face helps to blend the area while still maintaining a fresh highlight look. Also, chunky highlights are a great way to show off two specific hair hues.

Streaks of rich blue added to your black hair are an interesting combination. The added curls really round up the whole look, too.

#19: Beautifully Blended Honey Blonde
A blend of honey blonde and chocolate works best on ladies with warm complexions. The added waves boost the color’s dimension while giving the hair depth and volume. Ask your stylist to add blonde highlights with a balayage. Balayage highlights give off the dimension of light against dark. It’s also a great option if you want something lower maintenance as it allows for a softer grow-out.
#20: Dimensional Hair with Highlights and Lowlights
Dimensional hair with highlights and lowlights offers a bright tone without the high upkeep. Such hair color ideas will suit many women, but it’s important to invest in your home care. Look after the condition of your hair and give your blonde the best look and feel. I suggest maintaining it with regular trims to keep your hair looking its best.
#21: Feminine Platinum Blonde Highlights
Go for a hair color that is a platinum blonde hue, as it’s not too white and still has a tint of beige. The maintenance is about 8 weeks alternating between partial and full. Products that should be used are Redken bonder protein mask for at least 4 weeks, then alternate to hydrating shampoo and mask. I recommend a hydrating leave-in that also has thermal protection and SPF Redken one United 25 benefits.
#22: Modern Dark to Ash Grey Ombre with Highlights
This silver/grey balayage ombré has a seamless blend from a dark root to a smokey silvery grey. You may need multiple sessions involved before you get this color. Be patient and aware that highlighting your hair may lift differently than others. Your hair has to lift to a pale yellow (the inside of a banana) in order to achieve this color.
Grey is a fashion color, so be sure to use color-safe shampoos and conditioners. Toning every so often may be needed to add grey tones back in once it fades over time. However, the Celeb Luxury Viral grey shampoo would be very useful for a color like this to keep its longevity without having to get it re-toned every time at the salon.
#23: Bold and Vibrant Purple Highlights
To get these purple teasy lights, your hair needs to already be in a pretty healthy state. I recommend a color shampoo at home such as Celeb Luxury’s Viral shampoo to keep your purple highlights vibrant. Also, use a color-protecting shampoo that’s moisturizing. It would be good to use a heat protectant when using heat and to get a strengthening/moisture treatment once every month or every two months.
#24: Sophisticated Platinum Highlights
Try full-head platinum highlights on a textured pixie with a longer side bang! It’s easy to style using a texture paste or spray wax or whatever you have at the time. Ask your stylist to smudge your root and pull down matching baby lowlights into your heavy highlighted summer bleach blonde hair. If you’re a very active woman and need easy-to-style hair that could go from day to night in just a few minutes, here’s a great option!

#26: Caramel Streaks on Dark Brown Roots
Spice up your long wavy layers with some luscious honey and caramel highlights, so you can look sexy and flirty by just simply letting your lovely hair down! Balayage is really for the girl who doesn’t want the maintenance of standard highlights. It’s perfect for brunettes wanting to dip into the fabulous world of blonde, while still feeling like a brunette. Understand that every shade of brown is different and every skin tone is different. Bring some pics of looks that inspire you to your color appointment, but trust your colorist’s eye, and be flexible in your vision.
#27: Perfect Auburn Red Highlights
Give texture to your deep red lob by adding hair highlights and waves to it for a voluminous effect. This shade of auburn is ideal if you have a medium warm skin tone. It’s a vibrant, multi-dimensional red with violet undertones. I love to have multiple colors in a style. It makes your hair look thicker and reflects more light.
These red highlights follow the trend of vivid hair colors but are not out of the natural reds, just kicked up a little. To keep your current color, remember that not everyone can have pink hair. So the bold color will definitely help you stand out but in a gorgeous way.
#28: Effortless Cherry Red on Dark Brown Hair
This delicious blend of rose red and rich dark brown is ideal for any cut or style – wavy or straight, long or short. If you have a medium cool skin undertone, this will absolutely look perfect on you! This look can allow for up to four to six months grow out time, and you’ll never see the line of demarcation (where your roots grow in) like you will with highlights. If you like to have your roots done, you can still continue to do so with root touch-ups while your balayage continues to grow out!
#29: Chic Silver Strands
Silver highlights, without a doubt, create the new blonde color everyone wants these days. Don’t be afraid to blend it with your natural brown roots by adding some highlights for a smooth transition. Silver tones can be achieved on all women. It just requires patience and possibly several visits to the salon. The darker your hair, the longer it will take to get there. And it definitely requires maintenance. If you can’t get your hair touched up every 6-8 weeks, but you’re wanting to keep the silver tone, maybe this isn’t the look for you.
#30: Glossy Bronze Copper Highlights
