French balayage is currently developing into the most popular hair color trend of the season because it is super easy to care for and refreshingly summery...
From dirty brunette to fiery copper-red to golden blonde, we've admired some gorgeous hair color trends over the past few months. But they all have one problem: the outgrowth and the annoying re-dyeing at the hairdresser. If you'd prefer a lower-maintenance version for the summer, then this new color trend is just right for you: French balayage.
According to Adam Reed, L’Oreal Professionnel's British brand ambassador, French balayage is a new color philosophy: "It's about bringing balayage back to its Parisian roots to create that effortless color that many are looking for right now." The special thing about the new technology is that the coloring is modified depending on the hair color and hair structure. The color is individually placed on the hair, light and dark tones are mixed and all of this is adapted to the face shape, hair color, and cut of the individual.
Because the technology adapts to the hair and its structure, the hair color can be worn by straight, wavy, and curly hair. The key to shiny hair color here is just proper hair care. Color-protecting shampoos and heat protection sprays can extend the life of the color.
The smooth color transition of the balayage technique is perfect for both dark and light hair. Those who just want to achieve a natural color refreshment can opt for a gentle lightening. With copper and caramel tones, brunettes will achieve more depth, whereas blondes with light nuances can provide more dimension.
The best thing about French balayage: The natural and gentle coloration lasts for a particularly long time and saves us from having to re-dye the roots on a regular basis.
