Balayage is a movement on from Ombre where ends are lightened but with a more gradual, natural look. Ombre is pretty easy to achieve at home by yourself but you really need a good hairdresser to achieve the Balayage which is why I went to ColourNation. I’ve been to ColourNation in the past for highlights and was very happy with their skills so I knew that they would help me achieve the look I wanted.
I took with me a few photos (Mainly of Khloe Kardashian’s hair, she’s my current favourite!) and we discussed how we could make it work for my colouring and hair type. It’s a very gradual fade which is exactly what I wanted and I love the colour too, it’s just light enough and I even think I’ll love it when it inevitably gets slightly lighter in the summer. As you may be able to tell I have also had my hair extensions removed so I was very excited to get my hair cut and back into shape. Zahra (the hairstylist) removed just the perfect amount so it wasn’t too short but was left healthy and with a little more body.
And the blow dry! The blow dry was amazing too!
Overall I love the change and would really recommend giving Balayage a go this spring/summer. I never thought a lighter colour would suit me but this way I can still keep my darker roots meaning it still works well with my darker features. If you’re a little worried as to where to go to achieve the perfect faded colour (and for an amazing blow dry) check out ColourNation, Zahra done my hair this time but I in the past I have been equally as happy with Lacey.
