If You Like Chunky Highlights, You'll Love the "Piano" Highlights Hair-Colour Trend
Money piece highlights, chunky highlights, holiday highlights — so many of the current hair trends revolve around highlights, but have you heard of "piano" highlights? The latest hair-colour trend to bubble up for autumn on social media is similar to the chunky highlights look, but there are subtle differences that set it apart.
"Piano highlights are a throwback making a comeback," Angela Stevens, celebrity hairstylist and Cantu Beauty ambassador, told POPSUGAR. "This style of highlights was really popular in the '90s and shows clear lines between dark and lighter colours, almost in a piano style pattern." It's most commonly done with brunette hair, mixing shades of light brown and blond into the colour. The contrast between the colours mimics the white and black keys on a piano, creating a striped effect.
"Piano colour is also commonly seen on wefted hair when it's done by a machine [editor's note: weft hair is a collection of extensions connected to a cloth strip]," said Stevens. "When it's done really well, the colours pop." To get inspiration for the piano highlights hair-colour trend, keep scrolling.
