Deep side part blonde & brunette balayage short hairstyles
This asymmetrical haircut is perfect for balancing out a number of non-oval face shapes. For example, a deep side parting and long oblique bangs will remove symmetrical roundness from a plump round face. And the long face shape of this model is “hidden” by strong diagonal bangs that cover half of her forehead, which breaks up long thin lines. Plus, this lovely on-trend shade of neutral blonde is perfect for revitalizing dull, dark blonde hair!
Medium bob balayage short hairstyles for fine hair
If you like to wear long hair, but it is rather thin in texture, the best length is a medium bob. And it retains all of its natural density because it’s not layered. But its length is not enough for the hair to fit snugly to the head. The addition of short, blunt ends mixed with a few pointed ends adds fabulous texture that also makes the hair look thicker. With gentle waves and a highly contrasting bright blonde balayage, thin hair takes on a three-dimensional dimension and looks so much better!
Natural medium-blonde balayage short hairstyles for medium/fine hair
This trendy look is another great way to wear medium to fine hair. Easy to care for and style! The basic short haircut is an inverted bob with long layers on the sides and a cute layered nape. Waves add physical dimension, creating many eye-catching movements and textures. And the delicate color mix combines delicate shades of medium beige and honey blonde, as well as a trendy shade of ash blonde on the front!
Nape length beige and caramel bob – balayage short hairstyles

This haircut features blunt ends for added thickness and just a few shorter layers for a trendy tousled look.
Short pale golden-blonde bob with ash-blonde balayage
If you have hazel, honey, or hazel eyes, you may have a warm skin tone. And so instead of an ash blonde hair color, you’ll find that this rather pale golden color suits your complexion more.

This youthful tousled style is suitable for medium to fine hair as it combines many different techniques to give natural volume!

Colors are the key to achieving a completely modern look. And this mixture of medium to light beige-brown shades with delicate touches of beige-brown is a very natural and trendy hair coloring design.

Suitable for medium to fine textured hair, it incorporates the latest techniques to add texture and volume to straight hair.
