Trends come and go. Some are short-lived and don’t make any future reappearances (over-plucked eyebrows, anyone?) while others are so good that every few years they have a resurgence. One that seems to be trending on social media is chunky highlights. We never thought we’d see the day.
When you want chunky highlights, you get chunky highlights. This one was so fun! Definitely out of my comfort zone because I do more natural highlights. #chunkyhighlights #highlighting #hairpost #lorealprofessionnel #funday #outofmycomfortzone #loveit #pulpriottoners #haircolor #hairstylist #hairdressermagic #greenvillesc #greenvillesalon #greenvillestylist #yeahthatgreenville #like #follow
Say it With Stripes
This hair-colour style was popular in the early 2000s and basically consisted of picking a colour which didn’t resemble your natural hair colour at all and creating unnatural-looking stripes through the hair. The most popular take on this trend was to put lighter highlights on darker hair, like celebs such as Kelly Clarkson and Jessica Simpson. These days stylists tend to go more natural so that the effects are more subtle, but apparently standing out, whether it’s for a good or bad reason, is all that matters today.
Você se lembra dos cabelos de famosas como Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera e Lindsay Lohan lá no fim dos anos 90 e começo dos anos 2000? Pois eles estão de volta — ao menos, no Instagram. A última hashtag de beleza a fazer sucesso e levantar polêmica nas redes é a #chunkyhighlights, que já acumula mais de 7 mil inspirações capilares de quem gosta de mechas bem marcadas.

Loving it or Nah?
As is to be expected, people are having a lot of mixed feelings about the chunky highlights trend. And naturally they are airing their opinions online.

The internet seldom agrees on anything, but as for our stance on the matter: we are not here for it. The good news is that there are clearly people out there who are. You do you, boo.
