BALAYAGE | HOW TO HIGHLIGHT YOUR HAIR AT HOME

Best Balayage
Tired of your same old hair colour? Single-coloured hair patterns no longer excite anyone it seems, to tell the truth. So why not trust a professional and try dark balayage hairstyle ideas with highlights * that will suit your brown hair the most? Hair trends come and go, we have gone from pastel to platinum to dip dye and rose gold but balayage seems to suit girls of all hair colour all year round


Balayage is a kind of ombre. Some women like it to be more natural, others prefer the transition to be more prominent. There is a wide variety of contrasting hues which will compliment your hair such as platinum blond, copper, deep red, or you may try some subtler colours such as caramel, walnut, toffee, bronze, etc. If your skin is medium-toned, then the less contrasting colours will suit you to a tee. And if you have a fair-skinned face, then it’s better to try the paler hues. Or you could just throw caution to the wind and get whatever colour suits your mood

So how to do balayage hair at home?

1. Make an Allergy Test
It is important to perform an allergy test 48 hours before you actually begin doing balayage. You should do this even if you have used this product before or have colored your hair regularly. As your skin and body are constantly changing and you could develop a reaction even though you didn't in the past.

2. Put Your Hair Up
This will help ensure each layer of your hair is treated and makes it possible for you to create more and more layers. You may pull one part of your hair up and secure it with a clip. Then you may leave the thin layer of hair down.

3. Apply Vaseline
Don’t forget to put the layer of Vaseline to the line of hair to avoid the staining of the skin. Cool tip!

4. Twist And Tease
Twist from the medium length to the end, section by section. Tease at the starting point of the twist with a comb.

5. Begin to Dye
Apply the coluorant only to the length of the hair and to the areas you want to particularly lighten the color on. Avoid the exposure to the roots. Do small sections at a time.

6. Use Your Fingers
Use gloves, however, for a more natural effect it would be better to use fingers. Wash hands thoroughly afterwards of course. 

7. Work Through the Hair Strands
Work through the hair strands and make sure all the necessary areas are saturated. 

8. Get Rid of any Unnecessary Color Mixture
You may pour it away because it becomes useless within an hour. 

Before and After Balayage
In order to achieve the best effect, try the color which is the closest to your natural color of the hair. Look at the pictures included for inspiration in case you are not sure what you are aiming for. I think atypical colours like rose gold, lavender, even peach and pink can look stunning if done correctly as well. Just be weary of hair damage and make sure you book an appointment with your hairdresser if you want a drastic change. Of course, if you don't trust yourself to do it you can always see a professional to ensure it is executed properly.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. I have never coloured my hair, it has always seemed to be too high maintenance and damaging for me personally and my hair stresses me out too much as it is. I think if I ever did I would definitely do balayage it looks so glorious both in photos and in person. I hope you enjoyed this post, I was compensated for the inclusion of a link which is marked with an asterisk and of course, as I have never died my hair myself at home, all instructions were checked and verified both with people who have dyed their hair at home, my hairdresser and the beautiful web. I hope you are having a great week, thank you for visiting my site. Take care. 

Have you ever coloured your hair?

Love 
Kiran

  1. I probably watched 100 videos on how to do a balayage at home and I managed to make my ends lighter which was really nice but not the result I was looking for. I always dye my hair at home so any tips are appreciated! Great post! x
