And what’s actually fairly humorous is that regardless of the very fact my hair has appeared the identical that complete time, the strategies I discover myself asking the hairstylist for have diversified drastically through the years.

One thing alongside the traces of “babylights however sort of balayage and do not forget the foundation stretch, please?” Yep, navigating the world of hair color could be fairly the minefield. And admittedly, I am a bit fed up of the identical outdated, usual.
Fortunately, there is a new hair color pattern on the block and it is set to spice issues up a bit. That is proper—it is the ’90s chunky spotlight. However earlier than you begin experiencing flashbacks of zebra-like orange stripes courtesy of your favorite field dye, worry not. This time round, the chunky spotlight has had a little bit of a makeover.
