Highlights can complement choppy, layered hairstyles and have a dramatic effect on layered hair, giving it depth and drawing attention to its texture. Highlights can be applied in a manner that helps emphasize facial features.
Choppy, layered hairstyles can help hair look thicker. Highlights can add a sun-kissed glow to hair. Many custom hair colors rely on highlights to bring out the total beauty of the base color. Highlights combined with a choppy haircut can add a lot of volume to hair that is thinning or naturally thin. This combination can also be used to highlight facial structure or eyes.
