I want peek-a-boo highlights!
I'm going to make a confession. I'm nearly thirty and I love watching Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family. I saw my first peek-a-boo highlights on that show. In flashback scenes the character Aria has bright red peek-a-boo highlights. Before I knew what they were, I thought they were pretty cool. Then I stumbled across Hot in My Salon on AOL featuring Barbara Forgione and her rainbow highlights, and I learned the term peek-a-boo.
As a teenager I never had any desire to dye my hair, normal colors or otherwise. It wasn't until I hit my mid or late twenties that I got the urge to experiment. But I had a job that required a professional appearance. Hot pink streaks didn't exactly qualify. Now that I work as a professional writer, I can get away with what ever I want--if I can conjure up the confidence to pull it off, that is.
I love that since the highlights are underneath, you can hide them if you want. I also like the idea that you don't have roots to touch up.
If I don't feel quite brave enough to do a dramatic color I could do something more subtle:
If you look carefully Kim Kardashian and Mila Kunis have natural looking peek-a-boo highlights too.
I don't know if I'd want subtle caramel-blonde highlights to go with my brown hair or something wilder. I still have to find a haircut I like. Oh, and get new tires for my car and stock up on contact lenses before I spend money on my hair. Maybe this spring.
