Adding some hair colour to short hair is the best way to bring out its texture and style. Short hair lacks the length needed to play with too much colour, but these stunning hair colour ideas will re-invent your lob! If short hair and lobs are your go-to, lowlights and highlights are your best bet.
What are lowlights and highlights?
Lowlights is a technique used to darken your hair by using colours that are darker than your natural colour. For highlights, on the other hand, you typically opt for a shade lighter than your natural hair colour. When combined, both techniques can give your hair a very natural back-from-the-beach look. They create depth and add volume to your hair while adding a flattering dimension to your haircut.
This chocolate brown dimensional bob is the perfect example of using highlights and lowlights to add dimension to your hair. This is a great high-fashion and low-maintenance hairstyle if you’re looking for something stylish yet hassle-free.
