Hair color is one of the easier ways to quickly change your look, but an entirely new hue can be intimidating — especially if you’ve never done it before. Although hair color techniques like balayage and ombré have taken precedence in recent years, we’re still smitten with good old-fashioned highlights.

Taking a few pieces of the hair and dyeing them a shade lighter or darker than your natural one not only adds depth and dimension to your mane but also delivers the same head-turning impact of other hair color techniques. And with summer on the horizon, we can’t think of a better time to lighten things up… or down, depending on your mood.

Ahead are some of the fiercest examples of highlighted hair modeled by a handful of famous ladies. Get the inspo you need to take the plunge below.
