We're of the mind that everybody should sport highlights—whether your hair is darkest brown or fairest blonde, weaving in lighter, brighter shades brightens up the face and adds much-needed dimension to every hair type and style. These celebrity highlight looks are some of our favorites.

Scarlett's highlights are concentrated on the ends of her hair, while keeping her roots natural. This creates both a softer and sultrier look for her.

Emma Roberts
If you're unsure about taking your honey-hued base to Marilyn-level blonde, ask a colorist to give you a half head of balayage highlights. The new "paint your hair" treatment looks more natural than conventional foils, and already has a cult following that includes celebs like Drew Barrymore and Jessica Biel.

Jessica Biel
If you shy away from faux color to avoid trips to the salon, this season's highlighting trend is right up your ally. Take a note from Jessica and allow your light color to grow out. It's a softer way to rock the dyed-tips trend we've seen in the past.

Elizabeth Olsen
Elizabeth has effortless downtown style in her genes, but even her color need a little help from the pros. Instead of adding platinum highlights to light brown hair, soft brunettes should opt for caramel hues. The result is still a lighter, warm-weather look, but without the harsh color contrast and short grow-out period.
