These are highlights of pale blonde that make your hair sparkle in the light as if covered with snow.



Baby blonde

Trendy words for trendy colors

This is for the ladies who would like to do something with their hair but are not fond of big changes. If you have natural brown hair, straight, wavy or curly, several tiny highlights added to it will do miracles. They will not be immediately noticeable but the contrast will make your hair look thicker.

One great way to experiment with hair color is using quality hair extensions. Out stylists at Chicago Hair Extension Salon will gladly assist you on choosing the best nuance, extension method and hairdo that will suit your face.
