Popular styles of hair highlights are the balayage, babylights, ombre and chunky applications. Each highlight style has its own distinct visual impact and gradation effect.
Balayage highlights give a soft, sun-kissed look because color is applied on the areas where the sun would naturally hit. Babylights, as its name implies, is a style that mimics the delicate and dimensional color often seen on children's hair. Ombre hair highlighting is similar to the dip-dye trend but has a more natural diffused look from the dark roots to the lighter ends. To breathe life into lackluster locks, some opt for chunky hair highlights, where 1- to 3-inch strands are colored in bold shades.
