Every fall, as the colors of the leaves change and we transition into cooler weather, we prepare a to-do list that is like this: Find a bunch of pumpkin-scented candles, prepare decorations for Halloween, and consider what type of hair color we’re going to premiere for the new season.
While blondes thrive in the summer, brunettes flourish in the fall. It’s the perfect time to incorporate caramel, chestnut, honey and chocolate themed colors with a brunette base using the French hair-coloring technique called balayage. Balayage simply means to sweep, and it has become an extremely sought-after service because it is applied with a freehand by a professional colorist, which creates a more natural look. It also provides an incredibly low-maintenance style and lived-in look.
Traditionally, we typically go with lighter hair color in the summer, and darker hair color in the fall. It’s a natural transition, but not a golden rule that cannot be broken. There are plenty of hair color ideas that are low-maintenance but high-impact, including gorgeous options for blondes and redheads, but this particular post is focused on brunettes. Of course, always discuss your needs and wants with your stylist, and bring inspiration to share. Here are some inspirational images for dark balayage that you could consider this fall.
Why Balayage Works
One of the best parts about Balayage compared to traditional highlights is maintenance. Your hair will grow out softer and more naturally with fewer regrowth lines. As traditional Balayage applications generate a softer, more dimensional look, you may require more visits to the salon if your goal is to have the “Balayage look” with less dimension.
No matter what kind of hairstyle you have – Balayage can look stunning. There are plenty of ways to customize your look. If you are interested in Balayage view our color services or book a consultation.
