One quick swipe of the gram and you’ll notice celebrities and influencers all over the world sporting the infamous Face-Pop Chunky Highlights.
If someone had have told us in 2020 celebrities and influencers around the globe would be sporting a re-hashed late 90’s streaky colour look, (think Nicole Richie in The Simple Life and Geri Halliwell in Spice World….but cooler) we’d have laughed.
But, one look at TikTok or Instagram and you’ll see chunky highlights on the coolest girls around the globe – and we’re ok with it!!!
The brightness and chunkiness can be tweaked to your liking. For example, you can dial up the shine by using a bright blonde in the front like Kylie Jenner, Brittany Xavier and Dua Lipa, add a splash of colour like FKA Twigs or you can opt for more subtle Face-Pop Highlights with warm honey-golden tones and coppers like Kim K and Beyoncé.
Norway’s ELEVEN Australia Educator, Thomas Stave (who’s also sporting the look below) told us that a lot of his clients have been coming in asking for face-framing highlights after lockdown because they are after something new but non-committal. Thomas suggests bringing in a photo of how subtle or punchy you want to go. This is going to give your stylist a better indication of how far to push it!
Whether you’re opting for lighter slices around the face to lift your complexion and make your brunette hair pop or you want to go full Christina Aquilera inspired bleached ends and sporadic highlights in honey blondes, both Naydene and Thomas say the key to getting exactly what you want is to show your stylist pictures of your fav celebs sporting this look – from today…..not the OG….think more Dua Lipa than Ginger Spice!
To keep your bleached hair hydrated and smooth, we’d recommend using a regular hair mask like our 3 Minute Repair Rinse Out Treatment. If you’re worried about your golden blonde shades turning brassy, grab the ELEVEN Australia Keep My Blonde Shampoo and Treatment close by and replace with Hydrate My Hair Shampoo and Conditioner every other wash to make sure your blonde continues to shine!
