713b966c61189caa8a25 caramel balayage hair color trend

After a few seasons of postponed salon appointments and clients getting the chance to grow out their natural base shade, a new wave of color trends emerged. Alongside the likes of expensive brunette and brunette balayage trends, caramel balayage is the sweetest new trend taking the salon by storm. Learn why you’ll love this shade and tips for getting the look below. 

The Trend - Caramel Balayage: 

Although darker shades have always been more popular during the fall and winter months, we’ll see caramel balayage continue in popularity all year long. By utilizing a balayage technique, soft streaks of highlights throughout the head create a low-key look for easy upkeep. Additionally, because this look aims for only a few shades lighter than the natural base shade with a touch of warmth added in, this trend is less damaging and easy to achieve on various levels. 

All About That Base

With brunette color trends, it is best to try and utilize as much of the base shade as possible. This lessens the time in the chair while improving the overall impact when it comes to depth and dimension. Not to mention, it keeps the look fairly low-maintenance. 

Get The Look: Caramel Balayage

Some clients might lighten to a warm caramel color naturally, however, for many it requires a few steps to get them to the perfect tone. 

Taking caramel balayage inspiration from Wella Passionista @topknotbalayage, start off by pre-lightening the hair with a freehand technique + Blondor Freelights.

Once the hair is pre-lightened to the desired level, apply a toner of Wella Professionals Color Touch 7/97 + Color Touch 8/0 to get that perfect caramel finish.
