If you're a brunette looking to make a hair change in a subtle-yet-noticeable way, look no further than Miranda Kerr's blonde highlights. While ultra-blended color trends like balayage and ombré have reigned supreme for quite a while, the model's new look is reason to believe that a more old-school technique is resurfacing. Yes, blonde streaks are back — and they're the newest way for brunettes to amp up their look.
The Australian supermodel, who had her second baby with husband Evan Spiegel in May, has spent the past few months promoting new items from her skincare line, Kora Organics.
Over the past two days, Kerr has been working with celebrity hair stylist Harry Josh and celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo. Josh, who likely helped Kerr achieve her sun-kissed look, works regularly with an impressive roster of celebrity clients, including Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, and Taylor Hill.
Josh debuted his latest creation by posting a selfie of Kerr on Wed. afternoon to show off her brand-new blonde highlights. Kerr's streaks are a departure from her usual hues, which typically consists of natural-looking chocolate and chestnut browns. Although contrasting streaks were once considered a faux pas in the beauty world, Kerr makes a convincing case for defined highlights.
Just one day before Josh debuted Kerr's new look, the hairstylist shared a photo of Kerr's usual dark-brown color. He styled her hair stick-straight, tucking the front pieces behind her ears to show off her intricate stud earrings. "Boss lady @mirandakerrtoday. Make up by @hungvanngo hair by me using @harryjoshprotools," Josh captioned the photo.
While her slight color upgrade made a world of difference, Josh managed to make Kerr's hair look effortlessly glossy in both photos with a smooth blow out and a middle part. Using his own brand of luxury hair tools, he created a soft, shiny, style that's perfect for any occasion.
Whether you've decided to experiment with streaks or not, recreating Kerr's glossy texture is completely doable in the comfort of your own home. Ahead, find The Zoe Report's picks for the best products and tools to achieve a glossy blowout with plenty of shine.
