31 Stunning Blonde Balayage Looks
The balayage style is a hairstyle loved and adored by many because of its easy, versatile and low-maintenance nature. It allows for easier growing out of color as well as giving your hair a break when it’s frazzled from over-treating, styling and dying.
Known for creating a beautiful, natural finish when done the right way, the trendy blonde balayage looks you are about to see are classic examples of how easy, simple and elegant the look can be. If you’re thinking of giving this a shot, you should read this… and see these trendy blonde balayage looks we’ve found!
1. Dark Roots + Bright Ends
If you fancy the thought of blonde hair but don’t really fancy the upkeep of it all, blonde balayage looks are the perfect looks for you. Why? Because the regrowth is easy and the maintenance low.
We can’t express enough how easy this look is to wear and with the darker color on the top, you can leave your roots to grow a little longer than you normally would, stretching out the time between sessions with your brilliant but very expensive hair stylist.(We love them for their magic on our hair but we wish they came cheaper!)
2. Soft Blonde Balayage
If you’re usually a platinum blonde, try switching things up by going for more neutral shades, using toner to de-brass the look. Blonde balayage looks are designed to be subtle and discreet, that’s why people love the style so much.
We love the way this look incorporates our favorite shades of bright and ashy blondes together in one simple, elegant blend.
3. Beige Blonde
Going for an ash blonde rather than an icy-cool one is an easier transition to make if you’re brand new to the realms of blonde hair. You’ll only find out if blondes do have more fun by actually becoming one, but you need to get the right shade to avoid looking too bottle-blonde.
You should be aiming for soft and natural rather than bold and trashy, and even the boldest of blonde tones have been blended properly.
4. Blonde Balayage Highlights for Brunettes
Blondes and browns work really well together especially when they are cleverly fused in this balayage style.
Adding blonde highlights to brown hair (or brown lowlights to blonde hair), you’re adding a new dimension to the look which can actually help your hair look thicker!
5. Blonde Balayage Lob
There are a million and one ways you could dress this look up or style this design down, and just by changing from a straight finish to a curly one will have the biggest of impacts. In fact, curls are the best way to wear a balayage style because it allows the flow of blended tones and shades to come together, showing off every aspect of your new color-job.
Here’s another great tip for you as well – if you’re attempting one of these blonde balayage looks for yourself at home and you find your blending hasn’t blending so well, well placed and spaced curls can cover a multitude of sins!
6. Natural Looking Blonde Balayage
These waves are perfect for the days when you feel completely uninspired when you wake up in the morning. You can achieve these loose curls easily with the help of your hair straighteners, flicking them out as you pull the heat down to gentle shape it.
You can add as many or as few curls as you like and as we’ve recently discovered, you don’t need to do this in layers either. Just grab ends and get twirling – it really is as simple as that.
7. Honey Blonde Balayage for Brunettes
If you have thin or fine hair, adding layers to the ends irrespective of length can instantly add more depth, making it look as if your hair is thicker than it is.
We love the way the layers have been infused with the different shades of brown and ash blonde here to create a subtle, natural finish and one that would be easy to wear straight or curly / wavy.
8. Low Maintenance Blonde Balayage Highlights
If you love your balayage hair but fancy something a bit more glamorous for an evening or nighttime occasion, nothing works better than these beautiful elegant waves.
These are perfectly achieved with the help of some heated rollers and as the hair loosens throughout the evening, will result in loose waves that you could even get away with wearing the morning after the night before.
9. Blonde Balayage Highlights for Dark Brown Hair
If you’re going blonde for the first time and haven’t already figured out that it’s a pretty high maintenance color, trendy blonde balayage looks, just like this one, are spot on.
You would never know if that darker shading at the top is a natural brown root showing through or cleverly coloured that way. That’s the best thing about it – it doesn’t matter if you spend an extra couple of weeks before you get back to your hairstylist.
10. Sun Kissed Highlights
Adding layers helps to show off every range of your new color job and when you have shades as beautiful as the blonde balayage tones you can see here, why wouldn’t you want to show them off? The aim of the game is to have the blonde shading hitting the places the sun would naturally hit. Think sun-kissed and you have about the right idea.
Again, flick those layers out with the use of your straighteners (or even a clever blow dry) and you have a quick and simple look that’s perfect for any occasion, dressed up or down.
