Our hairstyle, much like our wardrobe and makeup choices, says a lot about our personalities. However, experimenting with our look can be a bit tricky as it's so easy to get something wrong and end up with a hair colour and cut that doesn't suit your face shape or skin tone.
"I love the idea of highlighting [being] incorporated [to this hair trend]! I love that it's meant to enhance and bring out the best of one's features and hide the 'not-so-favorite' areas just like how makeup works. By trying this new look, it made me feel more confident with my assets and less conscious about my insecurities!" - Clozette Ambassador Aggy Nuguid.
In makeup, a highlighter is used to give our features that extra glow especially when the light hits our skin. But if you've tried it, then you'll know that getting it right can also be challenging as it can make your skin look shiny and oily when done incorrectly. It can also put the spotlight on skin imperfections that you're trying to cover up instead of making your best features shine.
If you're blessed with amazing cheekbones just like Clozette Ambassador Jean Dalida, this strobing technique is for you! The look is achieved by bleaching the mid-section of the hair that is perfectly aligned with the cheeks and dyeing it with a hair colour that suits the skin tone.
This is also the go-to look if you're a lover of bold eye and lip makeup just like Clozette Ambassador Maxine Marcelino.
Take your smile to a whole new level. Show off your pearly whites and give your face an extra lift with the jaw strobe! This look is achieved by layering your hair, bleaching the area by the jawline, and letting it stand out in between the darker top and bottom base.
For those whose eyes are their strongest feature, this is the strobing technique for you. This look is achieved by framing the face with a textured fringe and bleaching parts of the hair in random patches to focus the light to your eyes.
Just when you think that this hair trend couldn't get any better, it's also effortlessly chic and can definitely help reinvent the way you do your makeup and style your OOTD.
"Since my hair is now reddish, I will opt to wear clothes that will help bring out the colour of hair and avoid colours that will clash with red. For lipstick, mauve and dark red shades will be my go-to colours!" - Clozette Ambassador Camille Pujalte
"It is true that highlighting and contouring has been big in terms of make-up trends. And as for some people like me, I’m not that person who really has the knowledge in terms of contouring and highlighting. Most of the time, I fail whenever I try. However, the new highlighting technique has given me a chance to enhance my facial features, to show them off, to look more distinctive, attractive, fresh, and bold." - Clozette Ambassador Camey Flores
