The hair game is really heating up with lots of new hair color, cuts and product options that run the gamut from creams to gels to styling powders. The newest method to add to your hair knowledge lexicon? 鈥淗airbrush highlights.鈥

But what exactly are they?

Hairbrush highlights are a new way to get soft, natural looking highlights for a gentle ombre effect. Similar to innovations like balayage (which involves painting hair strand by strand) and layage (which involves painting hair splayed on a flat surface with dye), color is applied with a hairbrush 鈥 round or paddle 鈥 instead of using a tint brush and foils. Basically, think Ariana Grande鈥檚 super chill look from last summer, and you get the idea.

The new method of getting perfectly highlighted and ombre-d hair is taking Instagram and the beauty-sphere by storm after beauty blogger聽Huda Kattan reposted a video of Turkish hairstylist 脰zden K眉rt眉r using the method to apply highlights on her Instagram account.

K眉rt眉r鈥檚 method gives you the enviable natural highlights that little children take for granted without foil wraps and frantic emergency touch-up salon visits. AMAZING.
