1. HAIRCUT WITH MULLETS
Mullet haircut is becoming widely popular, especially when it comes to highlights. Miley Cyrus has joined the ranks of the modern mullet wearers, including Kristen Stewart, Rihanna, and Ursula Corberó. What are your thoughts? Do you dare to try?
2. PIXIE A-LINE
The A-line pixie is a chin-length straight cut with subtle layers around the face. Kaia Gerber did it to say goodbye to 2019 and to welcome a new year; now it’s your turn. Welcome, 2023 with your flattering hairstyle.
3. BLONDE MUSHROOM
The mushroom blonde is an excellent choice for brunettes looking for a transitional shade to transition to blonde gradually. The best part is that it allows us to keep the root of our natural tone, making it very easy to maintain.
4. BOURBON RASPBERRY
If you have brown hair, the deep tones of Raspberry Bourbon are ideal. Add some reddish tones to your hair and your hair will look awesome. Don’t you adore the gleam?
If you have short hair, go for the shaggy cut because the casual layers add volume to your mane. Best of all, this style is instantly revitalizing.
6. LILAC CHOCOLATE
The Chocolate Lilac tone, which combines chocolate with lilac touches, is famous on Instagram. If you don’t want to go that far, you can add some fine purple highlights to your hair that is noticeable but not overpowering.
7. SMOKEY GOLD
You’ve probably heard a lot about smoky gold, the perfect hair color for both blondes and brunettes. It’s one of the most popular hair colors for 2023, and it’s no surprise it’s the newest trend!
8. BROWN ALE
If you’re a brunette, you’ll love Brown Ale, inspired by Ale beer which will add a super natural warm touch to your hair. Darken the base and add a few highlights around the face and on the ends to achieve the look in the photo.
9. LONG BOB
If going bob isn’t in the cards for you, try the long bob; it’s the more extended version. It’s a diagonal cut that isn’t as pronounced as the “traditional” bob and is far more versatile than the short version because the shoulders define its length limit. Selena Gomez wears it with the ends inwards, as Kim Kardashian does, for an exquisite look.
10. BLUNT BOB
The blunt bob, or short blunt bob, is also popular among celebrities. Take a cue from Michelle Williams and wear it with waves! Like the traditional asymmetrical bob, this hairstyle too looks stunning with highlights.
11. SMOKY BRUNETTE
Dark tones such as Smoky Brunette, jet black, bronze, or the ombré highlights worn by Kendall Jenner will be trendy in 2023 and are ideal for brunettes or brown-haired women who want to give their hair a different touch without making significant changes.
12. BLONDE BEIGE
Blonde beige has iridescent shades and is a natural combination of balayage and babylight highlights. Go for it if you’re blonde! If you love the trend of babylights then this hairstyle is for you to try.
If you have fine hair, lowlights will look great on you. They are usually darker shades to give the hair a natural effect and depth.
14. XL HAIR
Long manes will still be popular in 2023, but a way to make this haircut stand out is to add layers and open bangs. Check out these tips for caring for your XL mane and showing off your long hair all year.
15. LONG MIDI
We adore the long midi because it’s comfortable, versatile, and flattering on all hair types. It’s a safe bet for this spring if it falls below the shoulders but does not reach the chest.
16. HAIR ACCESSORIES
A hair ornament will complement any hairstyle you choose. We saw them in 2020, and our manes will be adorned with hairpins, clips, headbands, and ribbons in 2023.
17. HAIRSTYLE WITH COLORED STRANDS
Is a rainbow flashing through your mind? Make those bright strands pop with a half-updo in the shape of a knot or a ponytail. Take the top section of your hair and twist it around itself to achieve this look. Then, of course, secure it with a couple of bobby pins and the strength of your hairspray.
A pro tip: if you’ve succumbed to the hidden rainbow trend and wear your colored highlights only in the back of your hair, the effect is even more dramatic. Do you want to give it a try? Examine the makeup shades and develop your look!
18. BALAYAGE STRAND HAIRSTYLE
You didn’t expect to like your balayage highlights so much when you did them at home, did you? Another surprise: did you know that gradient shades of your hair look much better cascading from a messy ponytail? Create a medium-high ponytail with some side strands to frame your face. To finish, add a few drops of oil to your ponytail and take a profile selfie to capture the moment.
19. CALIFORNIAN HIGHLIGHTS IN THE HAIR
After the summer, the sun has accentuated those highlights that appear to have been born on the Santa Monica beaches. You can increase the distance between your roots and ends with a pair of mini buns. Two buns – or as many as you want – at the top of your head to draw attention to your thinning mane. Leave the rest of your hair to its own devices and use oil to extend your vacation look until at least October.
20. HIGHLIGHTING IN WHITE OR GREY
If you’ve succumbed to the allure of platinum highlights with Blonde Bleach Color, play up the contrast with your roots with a matching hairstyle. Consider an inverted braid. You’re sure to accept the challenge but remember: to keep your updo from turning upside down, thoroughly care for and protect your color with shampoo and mask.
21. BLONDE (AND COLORED) HIGHLIGHTS IN HAIRSTYLES
Braids are a surefire way to highlight any strand, but boxer braids are the best option for making an impression with your blonde highlights. Make sure they’re well polished and under control with hairspray, and if you want to go all out, try octopus braids. The mechanics are the same, but the trick is to do several of them down near the nape of the neck so that the ends look like tentacles.
22. HAIRSTYLE WITH CAREFREE WAVES
Messy is trendy, but always with a touch of sophistication and without neglecting the well-groomed look. As a result, the first suggestion for showcasing your highlights this summer is to go for a hairstyle with casual waves. We have two choices: the always precise surfer or super trendy tousled hair waves.
23. SHOW OFF YOUR HIGHLIGHTS WITH THE UNSTRUCTURED PONYTAIL
If you have an XXL mane and have lightened it with subtle highlights, an unstructured ponytail is a way to go (again, a messy hairstyle). The benefit of this hairstyle is that we can experiment with it at various heights on the head, such as the crown or the nape of the neck. The important thing is that it has an unstructured effect so that the highlights blend as the strands cascade down. Allow your bangs to fall to add a casual touch to this hairstyle; if you wear face-framing highlights, they will frame your face.
24. CORNROW BRAIDS IN A HAIRSTYLE TO SHOW OFF YOUR HIGHLIGHTS
We get a lovely effect with this hairstyle because the cornrow braid shows the sweep of color in our hair in a process where the reflections are mixed until you reach the light ends. Whatever the length of your hair, you can achieve this hairstyle by taking strands and braiding them.
25. LOOSE HAIR AND A WATERFALL BRAID HAIRSTYLE
Half updos are the most popular hairstyles this summer. Either because they are comfortable or flattering when showing off your highlights. That’s why we recommend wearing your hair loose with a waterfall braid this summer, a great way to show off your highlights.
26. A HAIRSTYLE WITH CHIGNONS TO PLAY AGAINST THE HIGHLIGHTS
The two chignons are the stars of this summer’s hairstyles. Their youthful, festival-inspired look is ideal for highlighting your best features and playing with contrasts. It’s also a very comfortable and simple hairstyle. We recommend leaving a few strands loose around the face.
27. THE HALF-UP BUN FOR ‘HIDDEN’ HIGHLIGHTS
We already discussed them when we discussed spring-summer coloring techniques, and we know we’ll see many of them this summer. Underlights are a technique that involves coloring the inside of the hair, which is not always visible but creates a dramatic highlighting effect. Our favorite hairstyle with these highlights is undoubtedly the half-up bun, which gathers the top layer of the hair and reveals the color of your underlights.
28. FACE FRAMING STRANDS HIGH UPDO
The last name, chunky lights, or makeup highlights gives us plenty of hints. This technique aims to frame your face with a few front strands that are lighter than the rest of your hair, which is why many experts say it has the same illuminating power as good makeup. That is why a high updo with a few loose strands on the face does not appear to be the best hairstyle.
