Your hair color can be a testament and demonstration of your own personal style and personality. It can separate you from looking the same as everyone else. Unique blonde streaks can be added to your hair in a various array of ways to be special and different looking. Different shades of blonde placed in different locations throughout your head create unique blonde streak ideas.
Regardless of what your base hair color is, blonde hair is light enough to shine through to show a color contrast. One unique blonde streak idea is to have a darker base hair color, either dark blonde, brown, black or red, and to add two blonde streaks to the front pieces of the hair to highlight and frame your face.
Different Shades of Blonde
Instead of adding just a streak or two to the front of the hair to frame the face, another unique blonde streak idea is to add multiple blonde streaks throughout the hair in different blonde shades, from darker blonde to bleach blonde. Doing this adds a lot of dimension and depth to the hair. Also, when you do this it increases your hairstyle options. When you have a number of blonde streaks in different colors dispersed throughout your hair, you can change the part of your hair to get a new look every day.
One Blonde Streak Underneath
If you want something unique but understated, adding a single blonde streak to a piece of hair underneath makes a statement that you are still trying to be different and express your own style while being able to keep it subtle. With this streak idea, you can still hide the streak (since it's on the underside of your hair, near the neck) by keeping your hair down. This style will be more visible when the hair is pulled back into a ponytail or updo.
Typical highlights that are put into your hair with foil or with a highlighting cap provide very thin highlights that are meant to look natural. If you want to be different and unique, try adding thicker streaks to your hair instead of the thin highlight look. To be thick, these streaks need to be at least 2 inches wide. This way, they are noticeable and stand out, providing you with your unique blonde streak look.
