Balayage Beauty

As beauty rules once went, having your roots noticeably darker than the rest of your hair was a sin and something that no stylish woman would have been caught dead sporting. However, Balayage, also known as Ombré, is a hair trend that has been appearing on our radar since late 2008/2009. It is the process where the colourists literally paint the hair dye through the ends of your hair without using a special 'system,' resulting in a glowing, sun-kissed look.

Balayage is designed to create natural looking highlights, requiring minimal upkeep and is therefore, the lazy girls guide to ridiculously good looking hair. There are many other fabulous things about this hair trend: it's extremely economical, incredibly low maintenance and works with most textures and tones.

This trend can be attributed to trendsetters like Pip Edwards, Alexa Chung, Rachel Bilson and Jessica Biel who have made raw, natural looking hair sexy and desirable. Forget all the time and effort blowdrying, dying and cutting your hair into perfection, dishevelled, effortless hair is the desired look among the fashion pack. This season, convert the typically summer look into a winter favourite by using darker highlights and subtler tones for a sexy, and very stylish 'i just walked off the beach' look all year round!
