Babylights are the perfect way to add dimension to your hair without going full blonde. Here, J.Lo added light to her features by using face-framing babylights.
Similarly to J.Lo, Sofia Vergara focused on the front of her hair. But, her hair is longer which means there’s a lot more room to play.
Babylights don’t have to be blonde. Like Miranda, if your hair is darker, you can opt for light brown highlights.
Gisele Bundchen’s hair always has this lightness and airiness to it and it’s all thanks to babylights. Her babylights also compliment her skin tone and make her look sunkissed.

Let’s take a moment to admire this hair color that Selena Gomez recently adopted. The face-framing chocolate highlights at the ends of her hair and around her face are the true definition of what it means to have cinnamon swirl hair.
Priyanka Chopra’s hair is very similar to Selena’s in the fact that they both have highlights towards the ends of their hair. And although this curled look doesn’t frame the face like Selena’s, it does add some dimension to the curls and creates an optical illusion of volume.
You might remember Madelaine Petsch’s hair a more strawberry color in the show Riverdale. But her natural hair color is more copper than strawberry, and it can even look brown in darker light. This is another great color to try this upcoming year.

Meghan Trainor looks like a completely different person as a redhead. Although she keeps it darker towards her root, she’s added some highlights at the ends to add a pop of color and dimension.
Half and halfs are going to be super trendy this year. This look is for the people who are daring, want to try something new, or simply can’t choose what color to dye their hair. There are several ways to do the half and half. You can do it like Kesha who did two pastel colors while keeping her roots dark. You can also see darker highlights and blonde highlights peeking through.
Billie Eilish is a role model and her hair is no exception. She opted to add a pop of neon to her roots while maintaining the rest of her hair dark and we don’t hate it at all.
If you’d much rather get inspired by Cruella De Vil, you can do a high contrast half and half hair color. You can choose to go a sandy blonde on one side and jet black on the other.
Similarly to Kesha’s half and half, you can choose a pastel color while keeping the other half of your hair blonde. Just remember that you have to be committed and wear it parted down the middle to really show off the colors.

I really meant it when we said Halsey can pull off any hair color. Here, not only is she sporting dark hair, but she made her look even bolder by adding bangs that brushed right above her eyebrows.
Ariel Winter has always rocked jet black hair. This hair color makes her skin stand out by creating a high contrast.
You don’t have to always do straight black hair to achieve a fierce look. You can soften the harshness of the color by adding some loose colors, like Awkwafina did here.
Girls with curls can also do jet black hair. Although Courtney Cox doesn’t have curly hair, this curled look frames her features and elongates her face and neck.
Brunettes can have just as much fun as blondes. There are many ways to do brown hair and making the roots darker than the rest of the hair can add a sleek look.
Brown hair and curls can add a more playful tone to your look. And even though Nathalie Emmanuel’s hair color is very similar to her eye color, it makes them stand out.
Brunettes don’t have to be one dimensional and they also don’t need to have blonde highlights. Make your highlights one or two tones lighter to add a more chocolate tone to your hair.

Just like Zendaya, you can also add some copper highlights to your hair to add a toasted feel to your look.
If you’re looking for a more fun option, you can opt to dye your already blonde or bleached hair a pastel color. You can also keep your roots their natural hair color to avoid having to go to the salon every three weeks to cover them up.
You don’t have to do one solid color when doing pastels. You can add some dimension to the color by throwing in some highlights of colors within the same palette.

Don’t be afraid to get a more vibrant color when doing pastels. You can definitely ask your hairdresser to make the color a little more lively so it doesn’t look as muted.
Make your pastel hair color even cooler by getting a blunt haircut, like Maisie Williams. She chopped her hair in a straight line and added a fringe that framed her face perfectly.
