Get ready to rethink everything you knew about hair colour.
Taken from the French word for ‘sweeping’ balayage is a technique comprising of hand painted highlights to give an ultra-blended, natural look. Harsh regrowth lines be gone - it’s all about fabulously low-maintenance styles where less really is more when creating a natural, multi-tonal Becky with the good hair effect.
With rumours of a second wave circulating, and local lockdowns now a reality, these three reasons may just convince you to ditch the foils in favour of something more natural (and lockdown proof).
It frames your face
Each of us wants to put our best face forward and now you quite literally can. With a wealth of colours to choose from, you can opt for a melted blonde or brunette style with natural highlights around the face to light up your complexion.
It boosts a tan
Whether yours is from the garden, the bottle or from a country on the ‘green’ list is not important. Anything that works to accentuate what we’ve managed to get this summer is a resounding yes from us. This style works for brunettes and bleached blondes alike who want to pick a hue totally bespoke to them and their skin tone.
Roots are actually part of the look
Traditionally, roots were a necessary evil of great colour but not anymore. Your natural hair tones are crafted around the highlights in order to give a melted, faded look from roots to tips meaning no harsh lines or obvious I need to go to the hairdressers ASAP. This really is the ultimate low-maintenance look as long as you apply the right aftercare at home to keep your colour vibrant. With all the extra regrowth time during lockdown now is the perfect time to book in, just make sure to practice your smug face if we’re all forced back into lockdown.
