Hot now: The Balayage hairstyle

You’ve probably heart about this hairstyle or maybe you already have it yourself, the Balayage hairstyle is hot right now!

But what is balayage? 

Balayage is a French colouring technique. It’s a technique where they don’t use foiling or cap highlight techniques. The hairdresser colours your hair by hand and your hair gets a sun-kissed look. You don’t have to be afraid of outgrowth hair and this hairstyle is possible with hair of any kinds, long, short, blonde, brown and black hair!  This hairstyle sounds amazing right?! Here is some inspiration for you:

Blonde hair

So here are three different examples of a blonde balayage hairstyle. In the first picture you see the ombre effect very clear because in this hairstyle they used a dark brown colour and a light blonde colour.

The hair colour from the second picture is perfect for fall in my opinion. The colour in the third picture is my favourite and if you ask me, perfect for any season.

Brown hair

This hairstyle looks great on girls/women with brown hair. Again you can go for an obvious ombre effect (first picture) or more of a soft look (second picture).

Although you see this hairstyle mostly with some beachy waves, it also looks great on straight hair (third picture).

Very dark or black hair

Most girls with dark brown/black hair go for a light brown balayage look (The first and third picture). But you can also go for blonde highlights, which, I think looks super cool with some beachy waves! (second picture)

The balayage hair trend looks very cute with a short haircut. Curly or straight hair, it’ll look amazing!
