Fans of the Ombré: Do not fret if you are considering highlights for this season but are afraid the time for blonde highlights has passed; you are not alone. If you are feeling the urge to do something spectacular with the tips of your locks, I suggest an equally affordable and cheery alternative to the ombre; change your style with the addition of a decorative strand of color, or an assortment of colors, casually placed throughout your hair.

The trend is immensely popular amongst musicians and celebrities: Disney actress Selena Gomez and country singer Carrie Underwood have both added plenty of colorful strands to their hair, as well as dozens of other fashion-conscious figures.

Remember: Execution is key. Over-doing it may end with a result that is more costume than complimentary: Taking on the costume looks of Nicki Minaj or Lady Gaga is not smart for everyday wear. But the ample addition of color can achieve a breezy, radiant, and fun look that is perfect for sunny summer days. This allows for a wide variety of options. Additions of bright hues in streaks, washes of pastels, dip-dyes, and more, can all tastefully enhance a look that tells people you are happy to be out and about. Keep in mind; your color choices are crucial. Remember, the point of highlighting is not to merely garner attention by dipping your tips in bleach or introducing an entire color palette into your hair, but to compliment your pre-existing tones and features to create a vibrant, fresh look for the summer.
