The turn of the year gives many of us the nudge to change up our look, and clearly the A-list are no exception. This week Bella Hadid took to Instagram to share new face framing highlights – and we're obsessed with her new look.
One of the biggest 90s beauty trends, chunky highlights have recently seen a massive resurgence in popularity (you'll spot them all over TikTok and Instagram). So it's no surprise that celebs are jumping on the bandwagon, too.
Posting her new look to Instagram this week, Bella has opted for fiery red tones with her new highlights, kicking off her 2021 with a bang. Fancy recreating the look for yourself? Below the experts at Bleach London explain how to do it yourself at home.

How to recreate Bella Hadid's hair at home
Step 1: Use a comb to centre part your hair. Then, section a two-inch thick piece on either side of your face to the top of the ears. To make sure the back sections are tucked away, braid them and clip them back using crocodile clips.
Step 2: Bleach the two front sections using Plex Bleach ($14.70/£11), lifting to a golden yellow.
Step 3: Next, tone brassy hues using Champagne Super Toner ($11.40/£8.50) on the freshly bleached sections to create a soft golden blonde. You won't need to lift and lighten your hair to a white blonde, as warm, vivid colours work well on a medium blonde base.
Step 4: Then, recreate this molten colour using Tangerine Dream ($8.70/£6.50) for a deep orange tone. To create a multi-dimensional effect with lighter colour around the face like Bella's, dilute Tangerine Dream with the Beer Conditioner ($10/£7.50) to soften the shade.
Step 5: Apply this colour through the front strands, using your fingers to smoosh the colour from the roots to the lengths.
