Break This Rule: Highlights are your best bet for natural-looking dimension "Highlights are the ugliest form of color, they're so overused," Sorbie says. "Visualize it: A center part with stripes on each side symmetrically? It looks like a zebra." And while zebras are cute, they're not exactly what comes to mind when you think great hair. Sorbie says you're better off taking inspiration from people with naturally sun-kissed hair, like a kid who's spent all summer on the beach. "They'd have lighter ends and darker roots, that's more natural," Sorbie says. She suggests aiming for a seamless transition from darker roots to lighter ends, and skip the streaky highlights. "Not even zebras have such defined stripes," Sorbie says.
