Bye-bye, straighteners! Curly girls can confidently give the styling tool a break this summer because natural curls are trendy in 2021 and will finally be celebrated again in all their facets. This new hair color trend has been discovered closely with this: Curlyage was specially developed for curly hair and is now giving it a magical summer update.
Curlyage is - of course - a fusion of words from curls and balayage and thus already reveals what characterizes the hair color trend. Basically, it is a classic balayage technique that is no longer only used in straight or wavy hair, but also in curly hair.
For the technique, depending on the initial color, bright highlights in beige, gold, or caramel tones are brushed into the hair by hand, which reflect in the light and ensure a sun-kissed look. The balayage highlights can also be worn all over or just in the tips.
Very important: You should only have the technique performed by an absolute expert because firstly, the light strands of dark hair must be bleached with a bleaching agent, and secondly, the highlights should be individually adapted to your curls. These reflect the light in a completely different way than straight hair - which is why you need a special instinct here so that the highlights nestle perfectly against your hair and there are no block stripes.
Curlyage is basically every woman with natural curls or a perm - but the technique works best with dark to brunette hair, because this is where the highlights come into their own. It is important that your curls are also healthy and strong so that they are not unnecessarily damaged by the coloration.
After the application, you should definitely rely on a rich, regenerative moisturizer so that the hair color shines beautifully and the curls fall smoothly over the shoulders.
And: When it comes to styling, anything you like is allowed. The balayage highlights look particularly beautiful in a duet with open curls, which in summer 2021 will be worn naturally as well as somewhat disheveled and voluminous.
