Kate Beckinsdale (right)

Beckinsdale has the most outstanding dark brown hair with blonde highlights I have ever seen. It almost makes her look like a true blonde. The salon highlights simply glow off of the wavy contours of her hair.

Although you can achieve this with a box, such as with Revlon Frost N' Glow, you would have to use a very skilled hand to get the same effects. For a look like Beckinsdale's, it is best to make an appointment with a professional colorist.

Megan Fox (right)

While Fox looks stunning in her overall normally dark brown hair, these subtle golden blonde highlights add a romantic touch that is totally unexpected.

Fox tends to shifts her mane between dark brown and jet-black, and if your hair is as long as hers, it is best to use minimal color processing. Very long hair dries out at the ends and needs extra-special treatment, like hot oils.

Subtle hair lightening will minimize damage and maximize the wow factor with harmonious hues.

Khloe Kardashian (right)

While her sister Kim tends to keep her hair ultra-dark, Khloe always gives us variety with her hair shades. I have never seen Khloe look like a plain-Jane.

Khloe wins the most beautiful hair contest amongst her sisters because this long curly style is full of body and healthy color.

Her dye job is almost ombre with the concentration of blonde on the lower 2/3 of her hair, yet it doesn't look color-blocked.

Penelope Cruz (right)

Cruz has been known for having dark hair throughout most of her career. But her dark brown hair with light blonde highlights is both trendy and attractive on her.

Cruz has very fine sections of hair lightened all over her head and also has a few thicker pieces. This look is great for women who want more of a blended look without being too obvious. Cruz proves that mo matter how dark your hair is, you can add a splash of gold to it.

Kourtney Kardashian (right)

Kourtney adds just the right amount of brightness to mane wearing dark brown hair with medium blonde highlights.

Kourtney rarely makes any changes in her shade, so this one was rare to see. Dark haired girls who are a bit timid about lightening their hair can safely try her look!
