While we mostly aim for our highlights to look natural, there are times when the wow factor of colored highlights is just too good to resist. This year celebrities and fashionistas swapped their usual browns and blondes for pinks, blues, and even rainbow hues. In particular, pastel highlights have become hugely popular with the unique colors offering unexpectedly flattering results. The soft and ethereal tones of candy pinks, light lavenders, and baby blues have captured everyone’s interest and put some fun back into hair coloring. Best suited to blonde-haired beauties, pastels are particularly flattering on pale skin tones. While blonde women look great with these soft tones, brunettes and black haired ladies can relish the fact that they look superb with bright, vibrant hues, such as electric blues and bold magentas.
