Balayage coloring can be done with a variety of color combos on a variety of looks. This collection of balayage hair ideas will show you just how versatile and how gorgeous this color technique truly is!
1. Copper Hair
The red, coppery tones are going to make a strong statement in 2020, says our expert hairstylist. “The key to getting the most natural red hair is sticking to the copper/copper-gold family,” he says. “Any highlights should also stay on tone and in the warm family to intonation and complement to the copper base.”
2. “Natural” Hair
This year, it is all about looking natural, say our experts. “A return to a natural color is on the outlook, but when we say natural, don’t mean, you know, natural!” they say. “we are talking about a more seamless blend of hair color.”
3. Shadow Roots
Whether you choose a deeper tone to dye your roots or simply stick with the natural color, your stylist can add some warm highlights to bring your hair into the new-year celebration. They may cataract down in the bouncy curls, or frame your face if you make it straight. Either way, this is bound to show up among blondes, brunettes, and redheads alike, says our stylish.
4. Lilac Hair
While rose gold had a major moment in 2018, trend forecasters think that the new “it girl” hair color is lilac. The pastel purple shade, like this one from the stylists Melody and the experts at the workstation, is what they call “when vintage meets modern.” If you need even more inspiration, people can’t stop searching and pinning the pastel shade on Pinterest.
5. Cold Brew Hair
It is another way to boost your brunette hair is to follow one of the many coffee-toned trends. According to Blum, cold brew is when light undertones are placed in the mid- and lower sections of the mane.
6. Sombré Hair
In the past, ombré hairstyles have been anything but delicate. But according to the hair-stylist, hue director at Marc Harris Salon, the color is going to be even more soft and mixed. “It is low maintenance and promotes a natural-looking feel,” the stylist also says. “it is commercial, glamorous, flattering, and wears perfectly.”
7. Milk Chocolate Hair
Wellman says brunettes will be far from boring in this 2020. Various shades of blended milk chocolate, similar to the model’s hair, are starting to pop up for the upcoming new-year. Think of a lighter brown with similar shades woven throughout for a seamless (but bold) overall style.
8. Living Coral Hair
The stylist is ready to bring Pantone’s Color of the Year 2020 to your hair. Her iteration of “Living Coral” shown over here, it is a shade that works for all skin tones and works in the medium blonde or lighter mane.
9. Vibrant Reds
Natural redheads and those looking for a bold change will punch up the intensity of the hair color, says our expert hairstylist. “We will see very vibrant reds in many shades for 2020 displayed in a dimensional effect to actually give a natural yet very mind-blowing effect,” he says, crediting the celebrities like Julianne Moore and Amy Adams with the trend going on.
10. Mahogany Brown and Gold
