Want the highlights without the damage or upkeep? Try an accent or partial highlighting technique. Just use 10-12 foils of the hair color so it’s not too overwhelming with color or price, win-win! Have them placed throughout your hair to accent your facial features. If you don’t want them in the front, keep them on the top layers but away from your face.
