50 Balayage Hair Color Ideas To Swoon Over
6. Chocolate and Caramel Balayage
What does a delicious spread of Nutella look like on a fresh morning toast? It surely doesn’t look monotone. Not at all! It’s spiked with curvy waves asking for your attention. If you were a chocolate surfer, that would be the top 1 wave to catch. But you’re not a chocolate surfer, so this beautifully done caramel and chocolate balayage will do the job. Note the many layers and intensity of shades.
7. Purple-Based Honey
This is yet another icy gray shade of blonde that was achieved thanks to balayage. The highlights don’t have to vary vertically; it’s a great idea to achieve a horizontal ombre look using balayage methods. Remember to use purple tones and a purple shampoo to preserve the original shade.
8. All for Browns!
A natural light chestnut color topped with different brown shades is another great idea. This is a more classic look that would never go out of style, even if the balayage era came to an end. One more super-helpful advantage is that you will do a lot less maintenance with brown highlights than any other color.
9. Low Maintenance Ombre
There’s one thing you have to understand. Badass balayage hairstyles require true commitment, a much stronger commitment than the one you promise to your boyfriend. If you feel you can’t afford the hours a certain style requires, go with this low maintenance, soft and blended brown ombre look. The transition is very smooth and goes well with updos and curly styles. Even if it’s a messy bun day, this hair color will add a stylish charm, and all that in less than 2 minutes.
10. The Dark Side
If you’ve set your mind on ombre, you will have to go light at the ends of your hair. So, a great way of keeping it dark overall is picking a darker second color. Try this combo of black and gold. Mix ashy and cold shades to get this flexible look.
