This year is becoming the trending year for dark brown hair with caramel balayage. It makes sense that it’s so popular right now, so many celebrities with dark brown hair have shown their gorgeous caramel balayage hair on the red carpets. Selena Gomez, Heidi Klum, Ciara, Kim Kardashian, Jenifer Lopez and Lily Aldridge all use this very hair coloring technique. Balayage is a French hair coloring technique in which a hair stylist colors individual sections of hair. Yes, you will probably have to sit for about 2 hours while getting your hair colored, but it’ll be so worth it. A natural shine, refreshing new look, and effortlessly beautiful hair are going to be the result. That’s what we all want, right?
Is Caramel Balayage Good For the Dark Brown Hair?
The color that’s used for it is usually very strong. This could lead to some breakage. However, this is still a recommended technique for women with dry and damaged hair since they won’t have to recolor it often. Even if you don’t get it recolored every 10 weeks like it’s recommended, it’ll still be looking great.
#1: Long And Straight
It’s usually quite hard to hide roots on straight dark brown hair. But balayage is different, there are no harsh lines. It’s still best to choose a darker color highlight, so caramel balayage is the best option for this dark brown hair.
#2: Side Parting
Is there anything more seductive than a side parting balayage on dark brown hair? I don’t think so. Add caramel balayage to the look and it becomes even hotter. This will intensify the hair volume. To get a full seductive look choose warm and dark colored makeup.
#3: Bright Caramel
Admittedly, caramel balayage might sometimes be harder to notice on dark brown hair. Good thing there are brighter caramel shades. If you usually curl your hair, this will definitely bring more attention to your curls. So lovely!
#4: Messy Beachy Waves
In the summertime, dark brown hair may look monotonous. Change it up a bit by gently applying caramel balayage. It’s what sun-kissed dark hair would look like. Create beachy waves and you’re ready for the summer.
#5: Flawless Waves
So, you like your curls to look absolutely flawless? Every strand of hair has to fall perfectly. That’s a perfect hair style for dark brown hair. But, to make it more playful it’s a great idea to add brighter caramel balayage.
#6: High Contrast
Lily Aldridge isn’t afraid to choose bold color combinations. You shouldn’t be afraid either. To intensify the look and make the contrast even more visible straighten your hair. It’s an unusual look that’s only reserved for fearless innovative women.
#7: Cute and Subtle
Your dark brown hair is beautiful on its own so you don’t have to do anything dramatic to it. Adding a subtle caramel balayage only on the hair ends could be enough to refresh it. Everyone will be wondering if those caramel highlights are actually natural.
Dark brown hair is beautiful on its own. It doesn’t need many modifications to look absolutely fantastic. Simply adding caramel balayage in different ways can change up your whole style. It’s up to you to choose how dramatic the contrast should be.
