If you’re looking for something new ahead of Spring, take a cue from the Shatush technique. It’s a low maintenance way to dabble into lighter tones or refresh dark tresses with less commitment. The result is a beautiful dark to light gradient of color from mid-lengths to the tips that will give the effect of a sun-kissed look.
