Spring will be upon us sooner than you think, and it’s time to start getting your beauty routines lined out. It’s so fun to pick out a new spring color palette and wardrobe! Today we are going to be talking about hair colors for spring, specifically balayage. Balayage has been gaining in popularity recently, and you can expect to see it in various hues throughout the year. Let’s take a closer look at what it is, and explore our top picks for spring.
Balayage? What’s That?
Balayage is a method of applying hair color in which the color is painted onto the hair in a sweeping motion creating a gradient color that is soft and natural-looking. In fact, the word balayage in French means to sweep or paint. This versatile coloring technique can be used in a variety of color combinations and with virtually any hairstyle.
Starting with a dirty blonde base, strands gradually fade to a soft butter blonde at the ends. This works extremely well for anyone with naturally light hair color. Don’t like to color often? This combo will only get better with the sun’s help as you transition through the warmer months ahead.
Brown on Black
Proving that balayage isn’t only for the fair-haired, this is a super dark version of the technique. Transitioning from black roots gracefully fading to a warm brown and finally ending in a near auburn hue, this brunette balayage is simply breathtaking.
Deep reddish-brown roots transition quickly to warm copper with soft blonde accents. It’s the perfect sunny color to compliment the changing seasons. This looks equally stunning on both straight and wavy hair.
Pretty in Purple
Purple will be the fantasy color of spring. You’ll see it in various hues like silver lilac, black and deep amethyst, and even cherry-red to violet. Subtle or bold, the choice is yours. Either way, a purple balayage will make a powerful statement.
