Brighten Your Summer with Beautiful Highlights

Now that we’re starting to get out a bit more to enjoy our summer sun, it’s a great time to update or change your look. One of the best ways to make a change is to update your hair color with highlights, lowlights, or babylights. They allow you to create a whole new look without completely changing your natural hair color.

At Ellie K, we use professional Aveda products. Aveda hair color is vibrant, fade-resistant, and is formulated to improve the health of your hair. In fact, 96% of the hair color is naturally derived from plants, non-petroleum minerals, or water.

Select the right color for your skin tone. Choosing the right highlight color for your skin tone is important. The right highlight color can even out your complexion as well as brighten your existing hair color. If you have a warmer skin tone, your undertones are golden and yellow so choose cooler colors for your highlights to brighten and lighten without adding too much warmth. If your skin tone is cool, your undertones are blue and pink. With these, you should choose warmer colors to complement your hair color without making your complexion appear ashen or washed out.

Best highlight shades for dark hair. Mocha, caramel, and chestnut are great to highlight colors for brunettes. Avoid going too light to prevent an unnatural streaky look. Using a couple of different complementing shades will give you added depth and dimension.

Best shades for lighter hair. Perfect colors for highlights in lighter hair include honey, champagne, and platinum. If your hair is very light you may opt for some darker lowlights as well to add even more depth of color.

Highlight shades for redheads. Copper, strawberry blonde, and auburn are excellent choices for highlighting red hair. You could also opt for a deep burgundy or black peekaboo highlights for a daring and eye-catching effect.
