Embracing Your Natural Texture with Balayage

Monday, 24 June 2013 by Ouidad-The Curl Experts


With women embracing their natural texture, I see a return to 1960’s and 70’s with hair color and styling.

Think middle parts with beachy waves cascading with sun kisses highlights.

Brigitte Bardot blonde meets hippie chic and Cleopatra Jones with warm tones graced across her curls.

 Balayage and three dimensional color placement can enhance all of these styles and textures beautifully.

The Balayage technique is perfect for all hair textures. It allows for creativity and adds movement to create a natural finish. This is the healthier hair technique when highlighting.

Curly textures can add three dimensional pops of color to enhance eye color and facial structure.

I have many clients who are still trending towards bright and violet hues in their blonde, brunette or red hair which is always fun to explore.

It is all about using the correct color and placement technique in the salon and finding the correct home care to preserve the color and integrity of the hair.

    I have really thick coarse hair. What ouidad products should I use. I have been playing around with a few of them but my hair still get really frizzy on ends and isn’t soft and bouncy. No live in maryland where would be the closest salon I could go to for a make over. Mimi a, Greek and Italian so my hair is really thick. My natural color is ugly brown. I have lots of blonde highlights to hide the gray. Nnthank you
