If you've ever considered brown hair to be dull or boring, think again. More now than ever before, brunettes are taking full advantage of their dark roots—no pun intended—and opting for a subtle balayage for added dimension and contrast.
Hanin Abdeljawad (@beautybyhanin), a hairstylist based in Stockton, California, lightened up her client's base while still maintaining an overall warm tone. The result? A seamless and multi-colored blend. Here's how she achieved the look:
- Balayage desired areas with Schwarzkopf BLONDME and 25-volume developer.
- Tone the root area with Redken Shades EQ 06n + 06gn equal parts and smudge downwards.
- Tone the ends with Redken Shades EQ 08n + 8gn equal parts.
