30 Best Peekaboo Hair Color Ideas and Trending Styles

Are you thinking about switching your hair color? How about you consider getting some peekaboo highlights? These are a huge trend at the moment, and it seems like they will stay around for quite some time. Keep on reading and explore different highlights down below that will suit you!

What Is Peekaboo Hair Color?

Peekaboo highlights are called like so for the obvious reason – they are trying to give you that ‘peekaboo’ moment. These are applied underneath the top layer of your hair, and they are not as easy to spot once you wear your hair down. However, once you put it in a ponytail these highlights will be quite visible. They are also easy to spot if you go for a wavy hairstyle. This is why most women prefer getting bright-colored peekaboo highlights – they will look amazing with that pop of color.

Who Should Get Peekaboo Highlights?

Peekaboo highlights can be worn by anyone! You can go for a dramatic neon color that is party-perfect, or you can go for a light beige or blonde if you are a minimalistic person. Natural & more neutral colors are office-friendly and perfect for women who can’t do a dramatic change with their hair at work.

What Are The Best Colors For Peekaboo Highlights?
