Get the Look: Babylight Brunette

Subtle highlights for brown hair.

Babylights are subtle, natural-looking highlights, reminiscent to those that appeared in your hair as a child after a summer full of sun. These small, thin highlights are placed close together at the crown and bottom of the hair to give your hair the ultimate sun-kissed look. "It's a great way to accentuate brunettes," says New York City hairdresser and L'Oréal Professionnel Artist Min Kim.

Babylight Brunette is best on textured hair, for looks such as the choppy bob or long 60s-style layers. Inspired by the French girl, this look is effortlessly cool and timelessly youthful. By scattering glittery strands that are just a touch lighter than your base color around the face, you will give the illusion that you spent the season bathing in the sun.

The Brunette Bar

L'Oréal Professionnel's new Brunette Bar allows brunettes to get creative with their haircolor. Choose between natural highlights and sun-kissed shine with Babylight Brunette, a subtle wash of color with the French Polish, or go for major movement care of the Trecolore Chic look-it's all up to you. No matter which look you go with get ready for major compliments!

Caring For Highlighted Hair

Traditional highlights require a trip to the salon every three months. Babylights however, are less maintenance, allowing up to six months before requiring a touch up from your hair colorist. To prolong the life of your look, invest in professional-quality shampoos and conditioners that have been formulated for color-treated hair.
