This has got to be one of the most exotic highlights out there!  

The reason this one is in the beginning is because it fits in with the Asian skin tone and compliments the features so well.  Purple ombre has its way with presenting itself on people with dusky skin. The best part of having purple ombre as highlights is how much it stands out from the other colours. You’re on luck if you have wavy hair because these highlights look great with waves. 

Tips

Decide on how intense you want the highlights to be. It could be lighter if you are not too confident about the colour although it can be changed over time.

‘Bronde’ is a combination of brown and blonde. When used as highlights it gives an ashy and faded result which looks amazing with women of lighter complexion. It has a sassy look which will ease out the pressure of dressing up. You can highlight it half down or even do highlights in regular highlights. 

Tips

With these highlights, try not to wear dull coloured clothes.

Highlights for the strands look the best on women with bob haircuts. Make sure you know which colour you want since this is going on most of your hair. These highlights are there on the bigger portion of your hair and hence your choice should make sense. 

Tips

If you have black hair you have an ocean of choices with some hindering other features of yours. For example, there might be highlights that will look good on your hair type but won’t do as much justice to your skin tone. 

This caramelized look can be achieved on any skin tones. The lighter the better but it does not treat dusky tones that bad. However, if you have coarse hair, I would recommend you not to go for this. It makes the hair look rougher and in disarray. 

Tips

Keep your hair brushed at all times or style it to maintain the look. 

#4 – Pink Asymmetrical Bob Highlights with A-line

 We all love an asymmetrical haircut. And even better when there is a bold colour as a highlight! 

The pink highlight goes hand in hand with this bob. The asymmetrical bob on itself oozes confidence and the pink really ups the boldness. 

Although it is perceived that people who have a darker complexion shouldn’t be opting for lighter colours as highlights, this pink destroys that notion.

Tips

The asymmetrical haircut has a lot to do with face shapes so make sure yours is suitable for this hairstyle.

We recommend you not have highlights on the bangs as it will look all over the place. This is one of the most gorgeous hairstyles for Asian women. 

Tips

Use minimal highlighting so that it complements the framework of the hairstyle on itself.

Asian hairstyles with highlights for women 

It is given that Asian women have everything at their disposal to flaunt their beautiful features to their heart’s content. But there are some very important aspects to consider when you look at highlights. These colours have to depend on your skin tone, hair type and sometimes even your personality. We have answered some queries to help you make sure of which hairstyle to opt for. 

What Hair colour looks good on Asian skin tone?

The reason we are delving deep into the subject is that it's easy to get overwhelmed with the hues and tones that everybody around us uses. Sometimes we don’t consider our own features while getting hair colours done and merely because it looks nice. Here are some guidelines to follow before you get your hair coloured. 

  • Skin tone 

Make sure you make your peace with the fact that hair colour and skin tone are directly dependent on each other. You need to find a hair colour that will suit your skin tone. A large majority of Asians have a warmer skin tone and so you can go with hues that will compliment that. 

  • Hair colour and skin tone 

Make it a point to contrast your skin colour with your hair colour. This way both your hair and your face will illuminate in their own respective ways. Matching your hair colour and your skin tone will only make you look paler. 

  • Eyes and hair colour

One tip that can save you from regular visits to the salon is that your hair colour should match your eyes. 

How long do blonde highlights last? 

If you’ve decided to go for blonde highlights then you will also have to accept the fact that there is a lot of maintenance that goes into it. Blonde hair tends to wear off colour and hence requires a lot of attention. There are products that you can use to keep the blonde intact. 

The main reason you have to maintain blonde hair is that the wearing off process gives a weary colour which does not look good on the hair. Hair specialists recommend getting a root touch every now and then. 

Do highlights ruin your hair? 

Anything that is chemical will have an impact on the hair. Especially when used too much or in the wrong way. Highlights do have the capability to take the wrong toll but not when used in moderation and maintained well afterwards. It is definitely safer than bleach but still requires constant care and maintenance.
