As predicted, ash blonde balayage hair took off this year, evidenced by its increasing popularity on Pinterest, and it’s easy to see why. The universally flattering hair trend looks great, is low maintenance, and can be done in a variety of hues to suit all women.
The appeal of balayage is its pretty, soft, naturally sun-kissed look, with darker roots fading to bright, blonde ends. It’s multi-dimensional without harsh lines, due to the hand painted technique which is used to apply carefully placed highlights. A skilled hand is required to blend just the right mix of dark to light shading, resulting in a flawless finish that’s relaxed, fresh and organic.
Ash blonde balayage looks fantastic as it grows out. Unlike a block of colour, for example, with balayage, your advancing roots will only add more natural-looking contrast, and the ashy blonde grey tones from the middle to the ends create a stunning effect. Depending on your personal preference, the colour differentiation from the tips to the roots can be as subtle or as stark as you wish.
Highlighting and contouring of hair that is coloured this way can flatter your features and frame your face beautifully, but it needs to be done correctly in order to get the delicate balance just right. Skip the home dyeing kit this time and make sure you enlist the services of a professional, preferably somebody whose work you’re familiar with.
