Lived in Blonde, Bronde Hair, Rooted Balayage, Money Piece and more!

Move over high-maintenance blondes, the 'it-girl' shades are all about #rootmeltbalayage, #brondehair and #livedinblonde right now. Instagram is buzzing with the latest balayage and highlight hashtags. Everyone is curious about the emerging hair color trends because these looks are low-maintenance, last longer in between color appointments and have a beautiful grow in.  These looks are perfect for those women who don't like the look of a fresh foil highlight. Here are a few ideas for your next highlight appointment and how to talk to your hair color expert about the look you want.

The look goes by many names but the goals are similar.

Soft, dimensional color

Very blended effect

Easy grow in

Lived In Blonde Hair Color

Just like your favorite pair jeans, the"lived in" look and feel is always a good thing. With lived-in blonde hair, there is no breaking in period, no waiting for your lightened hair color to tone down. With the lived in look, hair grows in without an obvious root line so there's less pressure for a touch up. Lived in blonde hair is not as fussy, and can be achieved a few different ways, each allowing some base colour to show in order to create dimension. How much dimension is up to you. While the actual process takes a longer to execute than a traditional foil highlight, the look can last for several month!  

Root Melt Balayage

In this casual balayage look, it's all about the base! Your base colour that is. What makes today's medium and dark blonde balayage is that blended, melty look. A root melt, or shadow root, is when your stylist will follow your highlights with a single process color just on the roots to blur your base into your highlights. This also lets your stylist adjust the undertones on your base instead of going with your natural color.

Bronde Hair (Brown Blonde)

Bronde hair color is not new, but it's certainly having a moment as an alternative to light blonde highlights. Bronde hair color is more subtle than brunette hair with highlights. Bronde hair color is somewhere in between blonde and brown, and it's quite flattering. Even natural blondes are dipping into the deeper tones to create this beautiful dimension.

Money Piece Highlights
