Chunky highlights made a comeback in 2020, and now the trend is getting a vibrant twist in 2021. In addition to the stark light and dark contrast, we’re seeing bright and bold hues being paired in the form of highlights, money pieces and all-over color, and to be honest, we’re kind of into the two-toned look. If you’re on the fence, keep scrolling for inspo pics that may just convince you to try it.

A ’90s Vibe


This trend is all about the contrast. Go a traditional route by asking your stylist to do blonde chunky highlights on dark brown hair. You can also focus the lighter pieces in the front to create a stand-out money piece. The results are edgy, cool and seriously inspired by the ’90s.

Fully Two-Toned

Commit to the two-toned lifestyle by dyeing both sides of your hair opposite colors. It isn’t a look for the faint of heart, but for those who are brave and willing, it’s a jaw-dropping look. 

Just a Pop of Color

Dyeing half of your head is a huge commitment, we get it. If you want to try the trend in a more subtle way, rest assured you can focus the color on a small piece of hair and still get a showstopping look. 


Ask your stylist to focus the colors underneath the top layer of hair so that there’s an unexpected surprise every time you move your hair or tuck it behind your ears. 

Make It Vibrant

Blonde isn’t the only shade that’s getting some love. We love the versatility of this trend. Whether you go with blonde, red or purple, the results will be breathtaking.
