If you want a hair style that is considered to be low-maintenance, won’t leave you in the salon every few weeks, doesn’t matter if you let your roots grow out and can even be done from the comfort of your own home, you need to look no further. The answer is simple – balayage.
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!

You can barely see the color change in this balayage style but it just goes to show you exactly how versatile this stunning look is. It’s a very easy hair effect for a hair stylist, and the free-hand style of the colouring allows for many more mistakes. At the same time, it gives you the opportunity to be as bold (or not) as you like so feel free to aim small and work your way up. Have a simple, muted brown to blonde look like you can see here, adding more extremes of color as you go along feel braver! Adding to is easier than taking away.
The balayage style sure is a beautiful once and it’s one that can be easily achieved both in the salon and at home. In fact, why not get a little creative and play outside the lines? Go with colors you wouldn’t normally have chosen and get a bit bolder. If you have along or short hair, balayage is the next style you should be rocking!
