Highlights, according to Paul Mitchell colorists, are useful for hair that is thin as it gives hair definition and an appearance of volume. Though a few strands bleached gives a sun bleached look, bolder, thicker strips of various colors add to the look.
Some of the colors recommended by Paul Mitchell are the following:
Blonde highlights may look too harsh and also do stand out. For black hair, browns give a subtle look. The deeper the brown shade, the softer it look. Chocolate browns look wonderful.
Red complements black thoroughly. Auburn shades provide a subtle and natural look. For bolder highlights, you can go for burgundy reds or cherry red. Red reflects when in sun and it makes you hair look radiant when out in the sun.
Instead of a few scattered highlights, you may also go for that wild look using wilder colors. As black is a stable color, any color added to it will stand out! A streak of blue or purple or orange will make you look stunning. However, if you want a subtler wild look, consider using blue-black highlights wherein the blue is as dark as black.
