Highlighting and lowlighting hair color trends aren’t new, but they aren’t going anywhere for sure. Unlike the lowlights which stand for the coloring of some of your strands in a darker tone than your base hair color, highlights do the opposite job bringing lighter shades in your starting color. And as for the highlights, there will be more work to do since they require bleaching first. So, there are a lot of types of highlights for black hair actually. From barely there babylights to “almost ombre” full highlights. Yet, if you have never tried the highlighting technique, it’s better to choose some partial highlights to rock your updated black hair. A few lighter strands here and there will be just fine to start with. If you want to change your look a bit without changing the color of your beautiful black hair completely, you should check out the following types of highlights for black hair. You can do red or lilac highlights or choose any other color you like.
