Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. If we speak about hair, it allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair color with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.
This is the most popular request in any hair salon because it’s super easy to maintain and looks chic. It grows out beautifully and more naturally so you don’t get an obvious regrowth line and can wear it for longer between appointments. All you really need to do is protect it: use a color protecting shampoo and conditioner, regular treatments and heat protection when styling.
Balayage works on both light and dark hair and pretty much for all lengths except very short cropped hair. Today I’d like to show the most popular balayage hair ideas for brunettes, let’s have a look.
