- A kicker light is an accent light that highlights the edges of a subject. A hair light is a type of kicker, as it is pointed at a subject’s hair from behind or the side to add non-frontal illumination intended to accent that part of the subject. An interchangeable term for “kicker light” is “rim light.” Kicker lights tend to create highlights that are brighter than that of the key light.
