If you’ve already stocked up on new season wardrobe and transitioned your beauty routine it’s time to take care of your hair.

Whether you fancy a dramatic transformation or a subtle update, a trip to the salon is an act of self-care that anyone can benefit from, especially as we have uncovered a hair trend that could be making a comeback this autumn.

Model Bella Hadid decided to celebrate her birthday with a brand new do which has made us nostalgic for the 90s. That’s right, we are officially calling for the return of  chunky highlights.

The maxi caramel highlights look particularly striking on her long brown hair. The reveal was posted by colourist Jenna Perry and captioned the photo: “[Bella Hadid] leaving the studio yesterday reminding us that Y2K was the best decade.”

Further digging revealed that this look was already championed by the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Kylie Jenner over the summer who both went for a subtle contrast. Dua Lipa on the other hand decided to be a little more obvious about it as she clashed chunky blonde streaks with her raven-hued hair.

Thanks to the modern-day updates in technique – such as balayage, babylights or face-framing – this retro look feels fresh and flattering. All you have to do is decide on the level of contrast you want to commit to.
