Go for Golden

Adding gold works in all weather, especially for those with olive skin. Looking to lighten up without appearing washed out? These winter highlights are your golden ticket.

Even Blonder

Don’t fear going lighter in the winter months. Just because the sun’s in hiding doesn’t mean you can’t test if blondes have more fun. Use this time to try out your lightest blonde yet with platinum highlights—you might want to go all the way come June.

Pop of Red

Try a shade you don’t have to worry about getting bleached out, or sun damaged, like this insta-uplifting bright red.

Focus the Light

Highlights look oh-so-real when the placement is on point. Ask your stylist to create their own version of lived-in color, framing your face with lighter pieces. You’ll be thanking them as the style grows out with you.
