Balayage Hair Color

I'm In Love With Lily Aldridge's Balayage Hair! Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge has the most beautiful balayaged hair. Her highlights are the perfect color for that care-free summer look. Sun-kissed and super low maintenance if you're planning a lot of trips to sunny locations. Balayage is a french technique that means "to sweep." Hair color is brushed onto the hair without the use of foils to create that softer, melted look. And the great thing is that you don't have to get it touched up every 4-6 weeks like a heavy foil. Now I understand that the "root" look is hard for some people to rock, but the technique can be modified or combined with a base color for a lighter effect. Keep in mind though how pretty her skin looks in contrast to the dark hair framing her face. A full head of golden highlights would wash her out, but the cascading golden ends melted from her natural color makes for the perfect combination. Consider balayage hair color for your look this summer in Charlotte! It's a great way to try out highlights if you've never had them before as well!


  1. Hi Autumn,
    Would you say that the ombre look is "over?"
