Peacock Highlights

For the past several years, highlights have been pretty popular. You’ve probably had them yourself or at least known someone with streaks of blonde, red or amber in their hair. But what about peacock highlights? Peacock highlights are streaks of color in your hair, but instead of being the customary blondes and reds, they incorporate blues, teals, and purples. These highlights, in addition to intensifying your natural hair color, give your look an edgy pop of color.

A lot of women are getting a specific layer of their hair dyed peacock tones. This gives a really unique dimension to your locks, as the peacock colors just peek out depending on how your hair moves. So pretty!

Gray Tips

Gray tips are totally trending right now, and the darker your hair is, the better the gray will accent it. Depending on the color of your hair, different shades of gray will provide a better accent.
