Ribbon Highlights Are The Latest Hair Trend We’re Obsessed With
Take a guess at what ribbon highlights look like– and you’d probably be right. They’re cascading ribbons of hair that are highlighted in a particular color than the base color. Because the highlights are gently painted on, they still blend well with the natural color, so don’t worry—chunky, starkly contrasting highlights of the 1990s and 2000s are not back. Ribbon highlights are distinctly different shades than the base color, but they’re done in a way that flows well and adds depth and progress to the hair. The ribbon highlight effect is especially beautiful when worn with crest that the ribbons can descend down. (Check out this wavy hair tutorial.) Ribbon highlights are a great highlighting technique for summer, as they usually add warmth to the overall look. Or for those new to the highlighting game, they can be done subtly with ombre effects and baby lights. If you’re looking for new hair color genius to bring to your stylist, look no further than ribbon highlights—they’re as pretty as they sound.
