Bold chunky colorblock highlights

This bold chunky colorblock highlight technique is for people looking for a bang of color to compliment their cut. I love to use this DIY color technique to enhance a specific element of a haircut, like the heavy choppy fringe of this cut.

It involves choosing 3 colors….A light one, a dark one, and a bright one. These colors are applied in back to back sliced foils, or ‘panels’.  The bottom foils are the lightest, then the dark fall over the light, and the bright falls over both. This creates maximum ‘pop’ and contrast within the triangle block. You can use more natural colors as I did in this photo, or you can use very bright vivid colors to create the look of tropical bird feathers!

This technique is easy and quick to apply, as it is just 5-6 back to back foils within a shape. For a more in depth look, read this post.
