The popular balayage technique doesn't just look great on long hair. The popular style is also popular with women with short hair.
Many at the hairdresser want beautiful highlights that look like they have been kissed by the sun. To do this, the balayage technique is best. The natural-looking strands are probably the most popular coloring technique for a long time. No wonder, after all, it conjures up depth and volume in the hair and makes it look fresh and lively. Often a mix of different tones is used, which are then "painted" individually and freely into the hair. With light hair, you choose predominantly light blonde colors, while with darker hair you prefer caramel tones.
Balayage is incredibly uncomplicated, as the natural look makes it almost unnoticeable. But balayage is not only reserved for women with long hair, short haircuts can also be wonderfully refined with it.
There are many types of balayage and the technique can be adapted very well to the respective hair structure. This is why shorter hair is not an obstacle, on the contrary! Balayage brings liveliness and movement to the short haircut. It is best to mix warm and cool nuances here, this provides even more depth. However, it is advisable to incorporate some thicker ombré strands in order to better emphasize the look. Short hair often does not have the dynamism that long hair does, which allows the different nuances to shine through. Only with very short cuts like the pixie is it difficult to create a successful balayage look.
Let your trusted hairdresser advise you, he will choose the right balayage technique for you. And an enormous advantage over long hair: If you are not so happy with the result, the color will grow out much faster and you can say goodbye to it the next time you cut your hair.
With light beach waves, balayage looks even more beautiful on short hair!
