Hi I'm Amelia and I want to talk to you about chunky hair highlights. Chunky hair highlights are actually highlights that you can actually see. They are chunks of prelightened hair so as in this mannequin's hair you can see there is definite lines. Now this is a particular type of look that you are going for. It is going to be a very unnatural look and as far as maintenance goes you might see the roots come out a little bit more quickly than if you had finer highlights. On this side of the mannequin's hair you can see she has got more fine highlights. They are just sort of kind of woven in all over so this is going to give you more of a natural look. If you are going for something a bit more dramatic then the chunky highlights are the way to go and what that is is the person who is highlighting your hair is going to actually go into the hair and weave out thick strands then they are going to place these thick strands into foil, place the lightening product on that and it will prelighten and give you thick chunky strands and chunky strands can be as chunky as you want them to be. I've seen them and done them as much of an inch or two as just striped hair color and it is a very dramatic look but just remember the chunkier the highlight the higher the maintenance.
