The top five rules of highlights

Lucky How-to

The Rules:

  • The "buttery highlights" of colorist lore invariably turn brassy (i.e. orange or yellowish) over time. Purple shampoo, through dark violet and scary-looking in the bottle, is the cure, erasing brassiness as if it were never there.

  • You don't need a full head of foils done each time: Alternate. Every other appointment, ask your colorist to simply touch up your base—i.e. dye the roots—it's twice as fast and half the cost.

  • Highlighted hair looks better a little messy and textured—a sleek, center-parted style draws attention to any unnatural-looking stripiness.

  • The prettiest thing is a few extra-light pieces around your face for a sun-streaked, just-spent-hours-on-the-beach vibe.

  • Peroxide fries hair, so it's crucial to deep-condition once a week—the creamier and gloppier, we say, the better.
