Trendy Hairstyle Peek-A-Boo Highlights are not only super trendy but they look awesome on everyone. Basically, these are highlights that “peek” out from underneath the top layer of your hair.

The top section of your hair is a solid color while the bottom section is highlighted which creates a multidimensional effect right around your neckline. This hair trend can be worn in practically any color and it’s an excellent technique for adding bold colors like blue, pink, or purple without going overboard.

If you are considering getting peek-a-boo hair highlights here are some things to keep in mind to keep your hair looking it’s best:

It is ok to get highlights that create an extreme contrast against your base color, but shades that are only a few levels apart will look more natural. If you want a noticeable color variation gradually lighten the highlights so you can pick the color that works best for you.

Avoid getting platinum highlights with a very dark base especially if you are getting thicker “peek-a-boo highlights” as this can create a “skunk-like” effect. Chunky peek-a-boo highlights can look great but be mindful of the colors you choose.

Also, some people opt to put a single streak of color over top of the upper layer of their hair. Make sure you are careful of the placement if you decide to add highlights to the upper section as it can throw the color off balance. Choosing a section towards the very front or midway through the side is best.

Color paneling is another hair color trend that is popping up. Instead of placing highlights throughout your hair, you carefully color large sections of hair. Color paneling helps create a very different look with varying styles because the placement of color is very structured. Unlike the Trendy Hairstyle Peek-A-Boo Highlights, this style looks best with very drastic color choices. This an ideal technique for bright colors and it works well with platinum hair or extremely dark hair. Hair does not have to be layered with color paneling for colors to show through.

Color paneling is a little more difficult to achieve than “peek-a-boo highlights”. Some people attempt to do color blocking at home, but results will turn out better if you go to a professional stylist at a salon. First of all, the colors need to be carefully placed so it is best to have someone who can see what they are doing all around. Secondly, if you are using two colors it is important to not let one color seep into the color next to it for even color. Maintenance will be a little more extensive on this style technique as roots will need to be touched up.

Hot And Trendy Hairstyles For Women Over 40

Bob Hairstyle Straight
Turning 40 doesn’t mean that you have to give up on having fabulous, youthful looking hair. It also doesn’t mean that you have to settle for your natural texture and lob off all of your hair into a super short “soccer mom” style. Although you may be at a point where your hair is no longer a top priority, there are plenty of easy to manage styles that are still extremely cute and trendy. Here are some of the best hairstyles for women over 40:

A sleek angled bob is an excellent option for a mature woman. You can wear the bob at varying lengths and keep a longer, youthful length in the front while trimming the hair shorter in the back to keep your neck cool and to prevent extra fuss. This style looks great smooth and straight and you will be able to easily achieve that texture with some serum and a blow dryer or a straightening iron. It won’t take long to style but it will look fun and stylish.

If you are ready to lose a lot of length, a piecey pixie cut will eliminate long styling times, but will still leave you with a fierce style. Pixie cuts do require frequent trims to maintain a fresh look so make sure you can schedule a cut every few weeks. After your hair has dried, run a bit of pomade throughout your hair to create a piecier texture.

Razored layer cuts are great for women over 40 because they require minimal maintenance and styling times. You can wear your hair straight, curly, or wavy and it will look great in razored layers. You can also wear your hair very long or short and you will not need frequent cuts to keep the style looking new. If you opt for a razored layer bob you can simply let your hair grow out and it will keep looking great.

If you are aiming for a style that will make you look younger, you should always choose a longer style over a shorter one. Shorter hairstyles can look fun and fresh but you will need to take time to style them in order for them to look sleek. Choose a style that is past your shoulders and layered. You can wear it down with a natural curly or wavy texture and it will instantly pull your look together.

If you like wearing bangs try choosing a style that is all one length and has straight, blunt bangs. You can wear this style super long or as short as your chin and the sleek texture will keep you looking youthful. Most mature styles fall flat because of their wispy texture, but a straighter style with bangs will still frame your face while looking age-appropriate.
