What better way to make a spectacular entrance into the spring and summer season than with highlights, and balayage is an excellent way to do just that! Balayage highlighting, providing lighter ends with a softer look on top, was created by French colorists. In French, balayage means to sweep, which is exactly how balayage highlights are applied – painted onto random pieces of hair in a sweeping motion using a brush.
Balayage highlights are a relatively low-maintenance, natural looking blend of face framing color that gives hair gorgeous dimension, and offers tons of options. Here is a sampling of some of the most popular balayage options that happen to be trending right now…
Dirty blonde, dark chocolate and auburn with amber highlights are all excellent choices. Then there are the warm tones of caramel that look luscious on long waves or worked into layers. Or tap the opposite end of the hair color spectrum with the sophisticated cool tones of ash brown or blonde. You can take things up a notch with bright blonde or go with fine balayage highlights all over for a more saturated look. Long streaks of platinum on dark blond hair pop. Blonde and metallic blonde (a slightly bolder choice) are both beautiful on natural brunettes; and silver and copper balayage highlights can both be very flattering to several skin tones. There is even multi-color balayage for those who want it all!
