Model with chunky highlighted hair.You know how it goes. Trends come and go. But, give it enough time, and what is old will once again become new. This is especially true when it comes to hairstyles, particularly when a younger generation starts to come into their own and, in doing so, they reintroduce their twist on a style that fell out of a fashion for a bit. With that, we’re excited to welcome back into our lives: chunky face-framing highlights.

Catapulted into the mainstream by e-girls — a younger group of trendsetters that has emerged mostly through their strong presence on social media, particularly TikTok — who have embraced a softened 90s skater aesthetic, and then further reinforced by celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Dua Lipa, and Billie Eilish, this once-passé look is now on-trend once again.

How to Create Chunky Highlights

Creating the look is a simple process; all you need to do bleach the front, face-framing section of your hair. Especially effective if your natural hair color is darker, the result is an abrupt change in color, creating a striking contrast that gets noticed.

It also helps that, with so many people spending more time at home these days, folks are much more willing to take the plunge and try something new and exciting with their hair. That being said, we’re not all housebound 100 percent of the time, so you still want to choose the right color contrast and make sure it’s done properly. You accomplish that by having the look executed by a professional stylist.

With that, we’d love to invite you to give our salon a call and speak to one of our experts for a color and styling consultation. We can help not only decide the right shade for your new chunky face-framing highlights, but also a new style altogether to really help tie the look together. Hairstyle is something that can make a bold statement and it speaks volumes about your personality; come on down and we’ll help your hair tell a story.
