Embracing Your Natural Texture with Balayage


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.
