The best haircuts for dark hair with highlights focus on adding dimension and definition to a style. To make highlights pop, layers around the face work best.
A popular term for dark hair with highlights is "bronde," combining blonde and brown hair shades. For long hair, focus on lightening the ends for a natural look. A gradient effect works well to avoid a choppy look. Adding longer layers around the face draws attention to the highlights.
For short hair, add fringe or layers around the face to create dimension. For longer pixie styles, highlight the longest sections of hair on the top of the head to add definition.
