Reverse Balayage Is Already The Biggest Hair Trend Of 2018
06 February 2018
Over the last few years, balayage has absolutely dominated the hair world. Your favorite celebrities, bloggers, influencers, and even your best friends have hopped on the balayage train. Balayage not only looks good on almost everyone, but also is a fairly easy-care color technique.
However, it’s beginning to look like 2018 may mark the end of balayage as you know it. After years of coveting artfully highlighted hair, women are now opting to cover their previously processed locks with with a technique called reverse balayage.
Like traditional balayage, reverse balayage uses the same hand-painted technique which creates natural-looking highlights. Instead of hand painting your strands with blonde or ashy brown, stylists are using dark colors near the roots and throughout your strands to bring depth to your look. If you were a natural brunette or dark blonde before your traditional balayage, reverse balayage has the added benefit of being even easier to maintain than traditional balayage. Because the colors used are typically closer to your natural shade, it’ll be even less noticeable when your hair grows out. That means you might head back to the salon for a haircut before you need a root touch-up.
Reverse balayage is perfect for anyone who loves the look of balayage but is no longer interested in maintaining their bottle blonde ‘do. Reverse balayage can not only reduce the amount of time spent maintaining your hair color, ut also help ensure your hair’s health. If you’re a natural brunette who’s spent years lightening your locks, your hair will appreciate the much-needed break from bleach.
