One of the hottest celebrity hairstyling trends right now is the Balayage, known by it’s common name, the two-tone hairstyle or as ombre, borrowed from the fashion term for a graduated color from dark to light. The hairstyle embraces the visible root, so instead of racing to the salon to touch up your roots, with the ombre hairstyle, we flaunt those roots.
The reason for balayage’s increasing popularity? Society’s elite moving towards a more natural look in hair colour, and consequently stepping away from stripy, zebra-like highlights. Fashion models, socialites and Hollywood’s brightest stars have lately been embracing the natural look, and of course, where the stars lead, the people shall follow!
Whether you want a barely noticeable colour shift or a dramatic change, balayage is likely to work in your favour. Balayage is an ideal colouring technique for any kind of lightening, whether you’re after a blonde boost or want to add some caramel tones to your naturally brown hair.
Balayage or grown-out highlights — is big news this year with heaps of celebs, including Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lauren Conrad, X Factor’s Caroline Flack and Leighton Meester lightening their ends. They were led by Queen Bee of this trend, Alexa Chung and joined by Aussies Rose Byrne, Jen Hawkins and Caitlin Stasey.
