    When the weather heats up, it's normal to crave major beauty updates — we tend to overhaul everything from our go-to moisturizer to our hair-removal method and our pedi shade. But, not every summer update needs to be so...obvious. When it comes to hair color, for instance, we're currently loving subtle-yet-noticeable highlights — the kind that make everyone exclaim: "You look fantastic! ...What did you do?"

    Although it's typically blondes that have the most highlighting fun, you needn't fear subtle streaks if you have darker locks — in fact, they can add the perfect glow and warmth to inky, dark shades. The key is to stick to shades of brown, rather than going super-blonde, which can look brassy and unnatural on dark locks.

    Click through to see some seriously stunning highlight inspiration shots — you'll be looking (and feeling) lighter and brighter in no time!
