Peekaboo highlights are the latest trend when it comes to highlights. They are quite unique, and completely different than regular highlights.
While regular highlights are there to emphasize your hair, peekaboo highlights are hidden under the top layer of your hair.
Usually, women get peekaboo highlights at the back of the head. But you can get them on any spot you want. And of course, there is no limit to colors as well. Choose any color you want.
Just remember, the trick is the color you use as peekaboo hair highlights to pop. No need of playing it subtle and cool.
What are peekaboo highlights?
As we said before, peekaboo highlights are quite different than regular ones. They are also known as hidden highlights, because they are applied underneath the top layer of hair.
