Blonde balayage is a hand-painted coloring technique used to blend blonde highlights into hair. It brightens your hair and gives it dimension, making it unnoticeable while growing out naturally. In my experience, when blonde shades are blended into your hair, it creates a natural-looking hair color.

If you’re a natural brunette:

Adding blonde highlights is the perfect way to lighten your hair for that “I just got back from a 2-week beach vacation” look. Note that it may take several color sessions to get the shade of blonde you’re looking for.

If you’re a natural blonde:

You must be looking for a change. I suggest adding brighter or cooler highlights or darker lowlights to create a natural-looking dimension.
