Before y’all hair gurus say the obvious on this one – like how late I am on the balayage being THE hair color trend right now – please know I know. You’re right though. Balayage has been an IT hair gimmick for quite a while. It was the the ombre trend and its death that actually brought balayage as a trend into spotlight for the past few years, and still going strong.

So I guess I’m right too. Amen to that! (to all of us being right.)


What exactly is BALAYAGE?

The word per se is French, and it’s actually a hair dye technique used for quite a while to give your mane that natural sun-kissed look we’re all naturally having in summer. It’s the most beautiful and natural mix of highlights and shades of blonde, caramel, honey, ash, brunette et all.

[the hair dye is applied on sections of hair, not from top to bottom].


It’s like the summer, the sun, the beach, and all their sunny gorgeous friends decided to have a party in your hair, and the outcome is brilliant as opposed to the after party mess. And it gets better in time. Ha!

Which brings me to the time situation with balayage. Who cares about time? That’s right. It’s such a natural looking hair color trend that you don’t need to re-touch it very often, in fact skipping on a few hair appointments will only make it look better: lighter ends, darker roots.

This technique has been having its natural way with my hair since I was a kid: born with super blonde hair which turned dark blonde growing up, but in summer it always looked better than ever, cause of how it naturally had that highlighted sun-kissed effect.

Now, thanks to balayage, imma get me some sun-kissed hair in mid winter.

Who can get Balayage?

Anyone really, as it’s a super versatile technique for all hair types and colours. There’s blonde balayage which can actually range from ash blonde to honey blonde, to golden blonde, or dark blonde. Then, there’s the caramael chocolate balayage which is slightly darker. And then there is brunette balayage ,so yes you can actually do balayage on dark hair.

Also, apparnelty there is the balayage highlight, or omblre, whichever floats your boat.

In my humbled non-hair guru opionion, but still one who’s tried all the shades from blonde to brunette throughout time, I think balayage is the most falttering hair colur trend ever, and anyone can look amazing with both blonde or dark balayage, it’s all just a matter of the right tone. Golden warm tones versus cold tones. And the lunky ones are neutral, so that means they can pull of any tone.

Why it’s the best hair color trend ever?

It’s low maintance, it’s incredly flattering on everyone being so dynamic and not uni-dimensionl (or whatever), it looks young, fresh, and very effortlessly sophisticated.

It flatters the skin tone, and looks like you literally sat in summer all day long.

Great. Now I’m having a season meltdown here. #summernostalgia

And the worst part is winter’s not even here.

Anyway, here are the pics for hair color inspo.

    My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.

    It’s great to know that balayage hair coloring would be a versatile technique that would be ranging from blonde to honey blonde colors. I will try out this style for myself now that I need to prepare for an event that I will attend this weekend. It’s to at least look nice when I walk down the aisle as part of the entourage of my sister’s wedding.
