BEAUTY BAR: Beautiful Balayage

July 9th, 2015 at 2:10am

Even though I’ve always been a blonde, I’ve found myself wanting to take risks in my monthly visits to the hair salon. Lately, I’ve been having a desire to take a huge hair risk and try out the dark brown trend. Dark roots with sun-kissed tips scream summer to me, and the touch of blonde on the ends helps make the perfect, and natural looking, balayage. Pair that look with a bold lip and I’ll be ready to go!

I’ll have to take notes from this Fashionista for my next salon visit because she is rocking this trend perfectly! Ripped boyfriend jeans, a white lace crop top and a kimono are not only super in this season, but are the perfect summertime staples for any wardrobe. This seriously chic outfit, paired with this Fashionista’s baylyage hair and bold red lip, makes me want to throw on my kimono, swipe on some red lipstick and run to the salon right now!

One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever gotten is no matter how fantastic your outfit is, your hair and makeup should be your best accessory. I always pay attention to each season’s style changes, and balayage is this season’s hottest trend. Balayage, or hair painting, is different from your usual ombré or highlights; stylists usually don’t use foils and the lightener is painted onto the hair’s ends, giving it a natural sun-kissed look. Lots of celebs, like Elizabeth Olsen and Jessica Biel, have recently been seen rockin’ this summertime look—definitely one I’ll be trying out this season!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To get this look, try out the new balayage trend and be sure to bring a picture with you to the salon to show your hairstylist. Don’t forget the bold lip! A classic red lipstick always does the trick!
