Future Proof Balayage for Brunettes - Hair Colour Trend for 2020
Summer is the perfect time for brunettes who want to break away from boring block colour and try a naturally multi-dimensional sun-kissed look without heaps of maintenance!
It's a new way of blending highlights that allows colour to grow out over time while still looking 'natural' without any harsh root lines. Because you are not highlighting from the roots as is done with regular foils or creating overly bleached ends as is done with Ombre or what is commonly referred to as balayage these days . It’s all about creating a very natural looking sunkissed colour through painting different shades of colour and highlighting the whole head.
It’s known as the colour you have for when want to look like you are not really having a colour! It is all about giving the illusion that you “don’t really care about your colour” but really your hair look flawless and you and your colourist have had endless conversations over this very customised appearance.
It’s so fashion forward, you'll see this tousled, effortlessly French looking chic colour everywhere. It can look polished and glam without looking like you are a slave to the salon and with only 2 - 3 major salon appointments a year - with minimal touch ups in-between......What is not to love for busy women?!
It also looks very striking with a healthy glossy finish thanks to ammonia free colour.
Smoothly blended micro-foils in cool brown tones create a sophisticated look, while warm caramel balayage highlights are very on trend for 2020.
The great thing about this new style of highlighting is that you can find a technique that will look amazing for brunettes of all ages and skin tones.
So while we love this low maintenance colour, you will need to invest in salon quality quality hair products to help extend your colour between salon visits and your lightened ends stay healthy.
You will need a shampoo and conditioner specifically formulated for coloured/highlighted hair as well as a nourishing and protective leave-in conditioning treatment to use pre-styling.
It’s all about loose waves that never look overdone with a bohemian-luxe vibe.
You want your hair to look full and healthy but not over-styled; you should never need to spend more than 20 minute styling your hair (lazy and time-poor gals, rejoice!)
Look for volume building and texturising sprays to give the hair subtle movement and hold. Find an easy-to-use, quick heating curling tool that is set to become your new best friend every morning, we love the ghd Oracle that makes curling a breeze!
