Color How-To: Sun-kissed Highlights

In the midst of what seems like a nationwide cold front, warmer days are on the brain. And while our beach bodies are from from ready, there's nothing better (or easier) than adding some sun-kissed highlights to your clients' hair for a little winter pick-me-up.

Some of our favorites from Habit Salon in Arizona, including owner Chrissy Rasmussen (@hairby_chrissy), Brittany Gonzalez (@hairbybrittany) and Jennifer Fitchet (@hairandmakeup_byjen) gave their first-time client some highlights that mimic the aftermath of a summer spent on the beach. Team work makes the dream work, right?
