Mirella goes over horizontal highlights, vertical highlights, diagonal forward, and diagonal back sections. Horizontal highlights are great for general highlighting, high diffusion, overall brightness, natural-looking highlights, and color correction. Diagonal Highlights are great for ribbon-effects, high contrast, and the illusion of longer looking hair.
