Wrap Strands in Ribbons

by Krista Bennett DeMaio


Brighten up drab hair—and skin—with “ribbons” of color, a new highlighting technique, says San Diego-based colorist Jet Rhys. What is it? Two hues—a lighter and darker shade—about the width of a ribbon are sandwiched together and placed around the hairline or throughout the top layer of hair, as seen on Kate Beckinsale, Rhys says. Bonus: The combo of depth and light makes limp hair look so much thicker.
