How to Choose The Best Highlights for Your Cut

By Jenny Andrews

With so many highlighting techniques out there, it can be confusing when it comes to choosing the right type of highlights for your style and cut. But with a few pointers, you can have highlights that compliment your cut and style in a way that you've never imagined.

Many of today's highlighting techniques like chunking and slicing are geared toward younger audiences with trendy haircuts. But if you have a classic cut, these techniques can give you a look that is a little mismatched or over the top. So, instead of opting for those boring frosting cap highlights that you've worn for the past 10 years, why not try a new technique that is just as classy but one that will bring your hair into this century.

The highlighting technique I'm talking about is multiple color weaving. By weaving 2 or 3 different colors into your strands with different densities use on different parts of your head, your stylist can create a custom highlighted look that cannot be emulated by anyone else. Granted, weaves have been around for a while, but the key to keeping them fresh is to change the color and color density to compliment your particular cut and style.

If you have ultra short hair, highlights can end up looking a bit spotted. But by combing color only onto the tips and predetermined areas of this style, your stylist can create a custom look that emphasizes your cut's trendy lines. Why not try a splash of vibrant red in the bangs or a few blond spiked tips in the back?

Perhaps no styles are best suited for chunking and slicing than today's textured bobs. These styles can be taken up a notch or two by simply placing a couple of streaks near the face. You can also put a few highlights on the tips of the hair. This is great especially if you wear your ends messy or flipped out. The color will work add interest and movement to your style.

In addition to trying different highlighting techniques, you can also experiment with different colors. Gone are the days of boring pale-yellow highlights. Today's highlights are infused with color and color variations. In fact, some colors use multiple colors from a varying palette to add interest and drama. There used to be a day when one did not mix browns, blonds and reds all on the same head of hair. Now, that day is history.
