Blonde balayage is a hand-painted coloring technique used to blend blonde highlights into hair. When balayage is achieved, it brightens the hair and gives it dimension, making it unnoticeable while growing out naturally. When blonde shades are blended into the hair it creates a natural-looking hair color.
If you’re a natural brunette:
Adding blonde highlights is the perfect way to lighten up your hair for that “I just got back from a 2-week beach vacation” look. Note that it may take several color sessions to get the shade of blonde you’re looking for. A bleach blonde can get you there faster, though.
If you’re a natural blonde:
You must be looking for a change. I suggest adding some brighter highlights or darker lowlights to create a natural-looking dimension that gets noticed. Whether you’re looking for bright platinum, golden blonde or an ashy balayage hue, you’ll find all the blonde balayage hair color ideas for your inspiration!
