There’s a new placement trend emerging in hair color. It’s more daring than ombre, but less wild than splash lights. I’m calling it under lights. It’s a technique that places lighter pieces just under the first layer of hair, creating a bold pop of brightness. You can see the look on celebrities like Sophia Bush, Cassadee Pope and Kelly Rowland. If your in the mood for trying something new click the style notes for simple steps for creating this look. –– Laura Martin

For some women, seasonal change means a complete makeover, cutting inches off their length or going from brunette to blonde; for others, it means adding some highlights or a few more layers to provide an understated metamorphosis. If you’re the second type, this natural light brown is a great choice. This woodsy tone looks natural on its own and pairs perfectly with other brunette shades for a seamless, sun kissed effect that grows out softly. Light browns look great with bright lips and sun kissed skin, giving a minimal, but noticeable update. Read on for the formula and application tips. Looking for something bolder? Check back tomorrow for a more dramatic seasonal inspiration. –– Laura Martin

This hair is thick, long, and luscious with a nice natural wave. That’s a great way to be, but it is also important that styles like this don’t get weighed down with all the density. Shape is critical. This style shows how to tailor it perfectly. Long and loose layers give movement and softness, while keeping length. This opens up and slims down the facial features. The indiscriminate parting provides the disheveled elegance, while the sultry waves are super hot. For color, notice how there are lighter pieces around the face-frame, which helps to give the illusion of a lighter hair texture as well as bringing out her great complexion.

Taking the ponytail to the next level is the bun. It leaves no hair falling forward and no hair on the shoulders giving you a certain style, a certain class.  So have some fun by changing your daytime look into a sophisticated nighttime bun! Updos are a great way to lift and highlight cheekbones, chin, lips and eyes –– all of the wonderful womanly features –– which is why they remain a style classic. This version also features soft ribbons of highlights, which adds nice depth and dimension.
