Let's take a moment to thank our lucky stars for how far highlights have come. It's almost hard to remember the days when stylists had to pull strands of hair through a hole in a cap to achieve dimension. Fast forward to 2018 and it seems like coloring techniques are becoming more seamless, flattering and natural looking by the day. 

Jamie Park (hairbyjpark), a balayage specialist in Elkhart, IL, gave her client a rooty caramel balayage that almost looks too good to be true. 

Get the look: 

  • Paint rooted melt using Wella Color Touch 3/0 
  • Lighten ends using Pulp Riot 30 volume 
  • Glaze with Redken Shades EQ 09nb + 07nb + 08wg
