Sometimes you just want to dye your hair a dramatic new color without the actual commitment of dyeing your hair a dramatic new color. In cases like these, it's normal to opt to add some low-maintenance highlights to your hair — though your Instagram feed might just convince you that "inverted" hair color is a trend you'll want to try your hand at soon.
Inverted hair color, also known as peekaboo highlights, is essentially a pop of color that's hidden under the top layers of hair. The highlights can be applied in any color — if you're a brunette, you can keep things simple by lightening a few pieces of hair to a soft blond color, or you can go wild with a light pink or electric blue. It's pretty similar to the hidden rainbow hair trend that took over our timelines back in 2016 after being popularized by Carla Rinaldi, a stylist at Not Another Salon in London.
Ahead, take a look at some of our favorite takes on the "inverted" hair color.
