Video: Honey Balayage On Dark Brown Hair: Ideas For Inspiration
Are you nostalgic for the coming summer? Honey balayage on dark brown hair will allow you to have sun reflections for longer while favoring fall colors. Before the implementation of this coloring method a few years ago, sun kissing or natural blonde ombre was a privilege kept to natural blonde and light brown hair. Today, we can also illuminate dark brown hair with honey balayage. So how can you resist this must-have hair color trend? Deavita presents the advantages of this coloring technique to you.
Balayage - what is it?
Balayage is a coloring technique that gives light, honey, caramel, golden or copper highlights without being completely colored. It is an ideal solution for brunettes wishing to sublimate their dark chestnut color without opting for total coloring, and which is also less aggressive for the hair and easy to maintain. It consists above all in bringing light to your hair and makes it possible to blend the colors with each other thanks to a coloring deposited on very fine strands, and distributed as well on the roots as on the lengths or the ends.
For what type of hair?
Indeed, honey sweep is not reserved for one type of hair. This technique gives added value to each type of hair, whether it is fine or more voluminous, short or long. It gives the illusion of volume to fine hair, relief to a thicker mane, and depth to curls. Balayage is a great solution for sensitive scalps and goes perfectly with both curly hair and straight hair.
For which complexion?
Indeed, the honey sweep softens the features and goes well with fair skin as well as dark skin, which gives you the freedom to experiment with the honey undertones.
Sweeping - on what basis?
Chestnut hair is often criticized for being too flat and lackluster. If you have dark brown hair and you want a change without taking risks, the honey balayage technique is an ideal solution to illuminate your hair while avoiding radical transformations. This honey balayage is aimed above all at women with chestnut and brown hair who want a boost for their hair while remaining natural. This method has the effect of lightening the natural base. On a brown base, the experts rely more on a caramel balayage while on a blonde base, we opt for honey or gold.
How to take care of your sweep?
Any coloring technique sensitizes the hair. Although balayage is a much less aggressive technique than full coloring, experts recommend that you use it in moderation, and not to do more than 3 scans per year, so as not to damage your hair fiber.
The advantage of this technique is easy maintenance. This explains why this method is so popular with modern women in a hurry: at regrowth, there is no root effect, nor bar in the hair. If you want to revive your color, you will need to make an appointment with your hairdresser approximately every 3 months.
The worst that can happen to you in the meantime is that the strands turn yellow or red. In this case, all you need to do is take a browning treatment to refresh the color. And as it looks like this technique will be around for a long time to come, we've prepared a gallery of images for you that can serve as a source of ideas applicable to your hairstyle and hair type.
