After dip dye and ombre, hair color trends have gotten more natural. That’s why we love these balayage highlights by Akae of Dynasty Barbershop. French for “sweeping,” this hand-painted technique creates gorgeous sun-kissed locks. Paired with layers, you have an effortless summertime look.
Unlike other highlights techniques, balayage is unique to each person. You colorist will paint on color freehand. The result is lots of depth and gradual color that looks totally natural. Even better, it works for hair at every length from pixie short to ultra long. Finally, highlights for medium length and short-haired ladies!
Of course, you can hope that the summer sun has the same effect but why wait? And please don’t reach for the Sun In or lemon juice instead. It doesn’t really work and is so drying for hair.
