Balayage coloring technique has always been in the trends but it’s changed through time, it looks much more better with natural shades and coloring technique.
Back in 80’s balayage is more vibrant but today it is subtle and nicely blended, this way it creates a nice & natural coloring for the hair. You can use a color 2-3 shades lighter that your base color to achieve a natural highlighted look. You can also go with darker colors too, balayage ombre is the best way to do that. Blonde is the most preferred hair color as balayage, it looks perfect on brunettes. It looks great on both long and short hairstyles if it is applied nicely.
