Caramel Balayage: A Brunette’s and Black-Haired Beauty’s Dream Style
Balayage is popular, not only because it offers effortless style, but also because of its equally effortless maintenance. There is no need for a touch up every few weeks. Honestly, it looks prettier the more it grows out. Maybe you don’t want to curl your hair every day, but the impressive blend of highs and lows in your tresses will speak for themselves.
Whether your hair is curly or straight, this dye job works with a variety of textures. Curlier manes beautifully show all the hues mixed together, while straighter strands lay the colors on display.
Caramel highlights, in particular, are a natural color. The understated hue is sophisticated and works for everyone from students to professionals.
#1: Caramel Balayage on Shorter Locks
Short hair is a sexy canvas for a warm balayage. The caramel highlights swirled throughout the loose waves deliver delectable style. It’s an easy look for brown-haired girls who don’t want to fully commit to being blonde. Plus, the shoulder-sweeping length is sassy and exudes confidence.

#2: Brunette-to-Blonde Balayage Waves
Beauty starts with amazing hair. A glossy caramel balayage is one way to ensure that your locks (and your total look) stun every day. Have your stylist give you layers towards the end of your tresses for the effect of added fullness.

#3: Caramel Highlights on Dark Hair
A lush caramel hue woven throughout dark strands creates an interesting contrast that plays-up the airy texture of a wavy cut. The wavy tresses are ready for everything from lazy days to dates. Even if you throw these long layers into a ponytail, the color will still shine through.

#4: Short and Sweet Curly Balayage
Enliven your elongated bob with some curls. Have your stylist throw in a few pieces of layers for good measure. This spin on the bob straddles the line between sophisticated and chic. The balayage simply amplifies its modern allure.

#5: Balayage on Extra Long Haircut
Balayage caramel highlights are the answer to the no-fuss style. The gorgeous color really carries your hairstyle, no matter the texture you choose. The highlights don’t need to be dramatic either. They can be more on the subtle side so that you add just a touch of color to your dark hair.

#6: Ombre to Balayage Transformation
It is simply breathtaking the way the varied colors in a balayage wrap around and flow through the coils of curly hair. There is so much depth and dimension. Plus, when you’re not feeling like curls, the color is super versatile. The balayage starts high, closer to the scalp, so as it grows out it needs little maintenance. It’s a win-win, right?
