Balayage for Dark Hair Colour Techniques in 2021

 

Balayage is a hair technique that started in France and aimed to create soft, sultry highlights that look more modern than the traditional highlights.

Balayage for brunette hair Is The Hottest 2021 Hair Trend! Here we have collected our favourite Balayage hairstyles for those with brunette hair. Now, you will learn how to get it so that it is absolutely best for you!

 

1. What is a Balayage? 

Balayage means “to sweep” in French. It is an in-depth process used to create a stunning blend of hair colours. While Ombre is more of a “shadow” effect, Balayage hair is a highlighting technique that looks as though as it has been hand-painted by a skilful artist. Which in a sense, it is. Your stylist at Meraki Hair Salon will use a variety of methods to achieve this trendy style.

It normally takes between two and three hours to complete the Balayage process. So keep the mind when you are booking your appointment with your stylist. But we promise it will be well worth the time and effort!

3. Is Ombre and Balayage the Same Thing?

As we discussed previously, Balayage and Ombre are not the same! Balayage is a hand-painted technique much like highlighting while Ombre is a gradual fade or lightening. Also, the usual difference in Ombre and Balayage is that Ombre shades are usually more colourful such as pinks, purples and other fun shades while Balayage tones tend to be more natural. Of course, there is an exception for both. But if you are looking for a more natural look, Balayage is definitely the way to go as it is a more subtle blend of colour.

This pretty blend of warm and cool brunette shades is so pretty. Needless to say, the colours blend so perfectly that you can’t tell it is not your natural colour. And with a long layered cut with flowing waves, you can’t go wrong this elegant look!
