Balayage is Instagram’s Favorite Fall Hair Color Trend
Fall is typically a time when drastic beauty moves are made. That peachy-nude lip now gets slathered in deep reds. Your nails go from neon pops of color to shimmering gem tones and silvers. And hair color gets darker, like from blonde to brondeor from rose gold to a deep auburn. But according to the trend spotters at Allure, fall's hottest hair color is perfect for those of us looking for a not-so-dramatic hair transformation this season: balayage hair.
In case you need a bit of a beauty refresher, balayage, in the ecaille and unlike ombre — or a regular set of highlights, for that matter — is a process that involves your colorist hand painting highlights through sections of your hair. This allows for the highlights to look more natural and subtle, so it feels like your hair’s been updated or enhanced, not totally made over. Another reason balayage might be so popular? It looks good on every hair cut and color. See how stunning it looks on these Instababes — and bookmark this post for your stylist ASAP!
If you're looking for something that is incredibly subtle, ask your colorist to chose an accent shade that is just a slight tone lighter than your natural color or whatever is the darkest color you're aiming towards. This results simple: soft highlights that will create a huge impact on your overall look. (Photo via @populationsalon)
