When Keri Hilson's career first took off, her hair was usually some shade of brown, leaning toward darker hues. Even so, she wasn't afraid to play with color
in a subtle way, as these blonde chunks show. If you don't want to go this light -- either because you're not sure if you want permanent color, or you have other chemical processes that make lightening your mane too much of a risky move -- then add clip-on extensions in a complementary shade. Wearing bangs
like this ensures that they'll blend into your hair seamlessly.
