Babylights –– the thin, subtle highlights that have replaced ombre as the go-to color placement –– offer the perfect solution for work-appropriate pastels by incorporating gelato shades in tiny threads. The bright bits diffuse into the surrounding hair for a look that appears natural from a distance but, up close, reveals a fashion-forward twist. Babylights are about accentuating your natural color and adding pastel can add intensity to the undertones in your hair. Try blue babylights in ash blonde shades, peach in natural copper, or coral with honey blonde. Click the style notes to learn more about this trend. –– Laura Martin
