Almost like ombre but less structured than that, the balayage style is a free-hand design normally incorporating light and dark shades of browns, blondes, reds, coppers and more. If you don’t think this look could be right for you, keep on scrolling. There’s a look to suit everyone – that’s the greatest thing about the balayage highlights!
