The internet has exploded with a barrage of underlights in psychedelic hues, claiming that this technique is the perfect way to have vibrant strands that you can conceal at the office. The assertion is a bit dubious—The only feasible way you could completely conceal underlights is to avoid moving—but the technique does allow the wearer to have a subtle accent shade that won’t dominate their look. One of my favorite applications of this technique is to use it to add bits of a brighter version of the base color. The look pictured above shows a classic version, an ashy dusk blonde enhanced with starry underlights. Get application tips and formulas for this look in the style notes. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
