In past years, an increasing number of people have requested balayage when visiting the salon. Balayage hair is one of the most popular looks in the beauty industry and continues to be popular after several years as a trend. There are a few reasons it’s still so popular and why it looks great on women with short or long locks.
Why Balayage Hair Is Still So Popular
Women love the low-maintenance of balayage because it requires less upkeep and still continues to look beautiful for several months. Due to the natural painted highlights added to the hair, further down the follicle, it makes it easy to grow out your roots without the color looking unnatural or awkward. The hair looks sun-kissed and natural, which makes it easy to avoid visiting the salon for another six months to save both time and money.
It’s Flattering on Everyone
One of the main reasons balayage hair is so popular is because it’s flattering on everyone. It can look beautiful on all hair colors, types, and lengths. Whether you decide to get your hair chopped off or rock extensions, you can continue to have balayage hair throughout the years as your hairstyle changes and evolves. The hair trend is even known to offer a variety of different shades and colors to suit all skin tones. Whether you have tan skin in the summer or look lighter in the winter, balayage hair will continue to look great each season, and as your look changes over time.
It also enhances natural color to ensure it appears more vibrant with added contrast. Each strand is hand painted by a colorist to make the mane appear thicker and more voluminous instead of all being the same color shade.
The look can even appear natural and beautiful on synthetic and human hair wigs. Go with a pre-colored synthetic wig if you want it to be temporary. Whether you choose a long wig or a short bob, the hair will have the effortless, sunkissed highlights that are typical of the balayage. The style of graduated color from dark at the roots to lighter at the ends is so popular there are several videos available showing how to achieve this look on human hair wigs that you can do at home.
It Can Enhance the Look of Your Cut
Balayage hair is popular because it can make your cut look amazing, especially when you have a layered cut like a lob or an aline bob. You not only will turn heads with a choppy haircut that looks chic and edgy, but can bring out the layers and draw more attention to the cut with balayage added. It will continue to look beautiful as your hair gets longer because the highlighted ends will still continue to be present.
You Can Change Your Balayage Look
Balayage hair is popular because you can continue to have the hairstyle for years without it ever looking the same. You can choose different hair colors to have fun and express yourself, whether you want rose gold balayage or balayage with red hair.
You also won’t have to dye your entire head of hair to achieve the look, which can mean less time at the salon and less damage to your natural locks. If you want to bring the locks up after your hair grows out, the hair appointment can take less than an hour.
Balayage hair proves to be flattering for those with thick or thin hair, whether they have a short or long cut. The natural look of balayage allows it to be appealing and continue to be one of the most requested hairstyles of the decade.
