When we go to our trusted hairdresser for dyeing, we usually want two things: 1. A fresh, new look. 2. Naturalness. After all, our hair should look like it has been kissed by the sun and subtle highlights should shimmer unobtrusively through the top hair. The balayage dyeing technique creates exactly this effect.
No other hairstyle trend is more popular when it comes to coloring. Because instead of striking strands in the hair, only subtle highlights are set with a brush. This creates a beautiful transition. And it gets even better: If the hair grows, the look looks even cooler. The roots literally merge with the highlights, creating a smooth transition. Awesome, isn't it?
But not all balayage is the same. The hairstyle trend can be colored very differently. We have put together four ideas for you that you can bring with you to your next visit to the hairdresser.
Lighter strands look especially great on the side of the face. So-called face-framing ensures a radiant complexion and a fresh look. Only with two fine highlights does the overall look of the hair appear lighter, your face more open and the radiance is also on top.
It looks especially natural when the roots are a little darker than the tips. That is why the ends of the hair are always colored lighter than the roots of the balayage. In order to maintain the natural look, hairdressers add very fine and light highlights. The transition from dark to light then becomes almost invisible in the trendy hairstyle trend.
If you want to achieve the greatest balayage effect, small highlights can be colored from the roots to the tips. The hair immediately looks a shade lighter without looking unnatural. Another plus point of the hairstyle trend: the longer the hair grows, the lighter the ends of the hair become. This has the effect of making them look like they have just been kissed by the sun.
If you only want to change your look minimally, you can do that with balayage highlights. The strands look almost like the natural hair color and are only minimally separated. The face-framing strands are not completely colored either, the hairstyle only sets mini-lights at the tips. The hairstyle trend is particularly effective in sunlight but is otherwise rather inconspicuous.
