The pastel or dip-dye trend might have created a buzz in the hair and beauty industry, but natural-looking highlights continue to be a beauty staple. But here is a hot new trend that is looking to take over the scene: babylights.
You might have seen this a few times on celebrities and models but did not recognise because you thought they were naturally blonde. However, babylights is a delicately highlighted look that blends in so well with your existing hair colour to make it seem natural. Are you ready to take on this new colour craze yet?
Obviously, the name is inspired by babies’ delicate and fresh nature. It utilises a fine colour technique using white-blonde highlights to achieve that baby blonde effect to the hair colour. However, it is different from a natural blonde because there is more depth, dimension and radiance to the hair colour.
The hair colour technique might be inspired by sun-kissed strands perfect for the summer, it is not exclusively available for natural blondes. In fact, that is the beauty of the babylights – you can use it on any natural hair tones and it will produce a variety of effects in the finishing hair colour.
If you’re contemplating on babylights and are worried that it might be costly to maintain, heave a sigh of relief. This colour is non-committal because the highlights are so subtle, regrowth is often unnoticeable. It is also blended well into the hair that the colour is not easily detected from the natural hair colour. In fact, hairstylists recommend stretching out your salon appointments because this hair colour looks better the longer it sits.
Lastly, when considering babylights, you need to give a lot of thought into the hairstyles you choose. Hair that is of shoulder-length or longer works best for babylights. It facilitates in a fluid movement of colours and make the highlights appear more natural. Another distinct advantage that babylights can give to your hair is that it comes with a glossy finish to it. To maintain that, you can incorporate hair oils and shine serums into your daily hair care and styling routine.
