Peek-a-boo highlights: Earloop

BLACKPINK’s Lisa first led this peek-a-boo hair colour trend and it’s not hard to see why many followed suit – it’s very easy to pull off yet gives you an edgy vibe at the same time and it’s a look that works for pretty much everyone.

Contrasting bright colours put your fun, vibrant personality in the spotlight while those who prefer a more low-key result can go for highlights in the same colour family.

Peek-a-boo highlights: Fringe

The dyed fringe trend (which is also referred to as ‘dragon beard hair’ by some) took off thanks to yet another BLACKPINK member, Jennie, and it’s probably not too far-fetched to say that it’s one of her most iconic hairstyles to date.

The best part about this peek-a-boo highlight? It’s not just reserved for two strips of blonde to frame your face, you can pretty much play it up with any colour on the spectrum that you fancy.

It’s certainly not an easy look to carry but that doesn’t mean it’s any less charming or beautiful –  you just need to feel bold enough to rock this look.

Peek-a-boo highlights: Headband

You may be wondering, what on earth does the trusted hair accessory have to do with peek-a-boo hair colour?

Well, the headband dye has been quite a craze among Korean pop stars of late, and it involves colouring two sections of the hair at the crown to create a faux headband look – how peculiar and convenient at the same time!

Apart from the OTT result, this look somehow offers an unexpected benefit to the wearer too in the form of a face-framing effect. To achieve this look, contrasting colours are ideal and the strip of hair in between the two coloured sections should ideally be four to five centimetres in width so that it resembles a headband.

A thin strip along the hairline and a wider chunk after the darker section will then be coloured in your desired contrasting hue.

Peek-a-boo highlights: Bangs

Flaunting strands of colours on your bangs is another peek-a-boo highlight trend that K-pop stars hopped on to.

While it’s not for the faint-hearted, we definitely think it’s a look that adds femininity without being too exaggerated.

Peek-a-boo highlights: Ponytail

First seen on IZ*ONE’s Yujin who sported a fiery red ponytail, this peek-a-boo highlight is probably one of the most eye-catching variations you can experiment with to match your equally bold personality.

The look calls for long hair since the two-toned appearance will only be most visible when your hair is tied up to a ponytail.

This peek-a-boo colour earns extra brownie points from us too because it still looks equally as beautiful when hair is let down, as it gives a dreamy gradient effect.
