If you have ever considered brown hair to be boring or dull, think again. With the balayage technique dye is applied to hair without the use of foil, resulting in a more natural and more exquisite look that feels like any brunette’s major hair goal. Mixing colors has never been this fun, so check out these brunette balayage styles and book an appointment with your colorist!
#1: Brown to Caramel Balayage
For a classic balayage hair color, opt for a soft brown to caramel fade. The combination is a very natural one, and so is the transition of hues, that’s why it’s still going to look fresh as your hair grows out. To get the most out of your new color, style your locks in long beach waves, making the lighter pieces appear even more vibrant.
#2: Long Bob with Red Tints
When it comes to balayage, brunette hair really lends itself to adding brighter colors. Mixing in a slight pop of red at the ends can transform your entire style. Be sure your stylist blends the colors well so your hair looks as natural as possible.
#3: Bright Reddish and Blonde Highlights
Blonde and reddish highlights will brighten up any lifeless darker hair. Choose your preferred golden and copper shades to liven up your tired locks. Subtle waves are perfect for showing off the new color variations in your style.
#4: Hints of Rose Gold
If you want rose gold hair, but are afraid of the commitment, give these subtle pink highlights a try. Mix it in with lighter brown shades to further diffuse the rosy hues. Combining brown and rose colors works best on shorter hair, so you just have a few hints of pink diluted in the darker shade.
#5: Subtle Ashy Brown
For something more subdued, try this ashy brunette to blonde balayage that looks like it has not been processed at all. A neutral color is perfect for anyone looking to take baby steps in hair color transformations.
#6: Light Brunette Balayage
The color transition doesn’t always have to be drastic. Lighten up your dark brown hair by adding milk chocolate highlights to the ends and face-framing pieces. For those with shoulder length locks, style your hair in loose messy waves for a modern feminine look.
#7: Bronde Balayage with Copper Touches
With medium length hair, you have the perfect canvas for a smooth color melt. The mix of ashy browns and blondes with hints of subdued copper is subtle enough for everyday wear but still adds a slight punk vibe to your style.
#8: Burnt Orange Ends
Want something bolder? Amp up the normal brunette balayage with fiery orange highlights. The good thing about the balayage technique is that you will not have to worry about pesky roots once the color starts to fade out.
#9: Long Curls with Honey Highlights
If you are looking for a hint of color here and there, you don’t have to commit to the full balayage effect. Opt for light honey highlights that won’t detract from your natural color. Style your long hair in loose, romantic curls so the highlights really shine through.
#10: Mid-Length Hair with Classic Balayage
Take inspiration from the faithful ombre technique and go with the traditional brown to light blonde transition. Choose two shades of blonde to prevent your style from looking stark and lifeless.
#11: Curly Hair with Auburn Highlights
For a more drastic style, try blending a vibrant auburn shade into your natural dark hair. The combination pops with both loose ringlets and straight locks, so if you want more contrast in colors, give these dark brunette balayage hues a try.
#12: Light Brown Balayage
It doesn’t take a drastic color change to liven up your style. In the name of “less is more”, stay within the brown color palette and give neutral ashy highlights a go. This youthful combination is great for professionals who need to keep their look polished.
#13: Ash Blonde to Gray Fade
Images of dyed gray locks have been all over Instagram, and you can easily get in on the trend with this balayage style. Having the gray color at the ends makes growing out your hair stress-free, and it looks great when styled in loose waves.
#14: Honey Brown Highlights
If the ombre effect is not the one for you, try weaving a honey brown shade throughout your entire head of hair. Brunette balayage highlights instantly brighten up dark brown hair and add low-maintenance dimension.
#15: Deep Brown Balayage with Bangs
Sometimes less is certainly more. Just go 1-2 shades lighter than your natural color for subtle highlights. If you have deep brown or black hair, a chocolate hue is the perfect complement. Add some front fringe to your youthful color for a more classic vibe.
#16: Multi-Dimensional Lob
It can be fun to include more than just two colors when doing a balayage. Instead of going straight from brown to light blonde, add in shades of golden or light brown to soften the color transition. A lob with long layers will perfectly showcase all of the different shades you are playing with.
#17: Matte Bronde Balayage
Ladies not interested in having all things high-shine can opt for this matte, ashy style. Doing balayage brunette to blonde is the most common solution; however, upgrade the classic combo by choosing subdued, ashy shades instead of the more intense ones.
#18: Long Waves with Light Highlights
Another well-blended option, this style incorporates hints of golden blonde throughout the hair. The contrasting light and dark shades are sure to catch the light as you walk by.
#19: Gilded Bob with Waves
The shape of your hair can completely transform the way you view your color. The angled bob puts the golden highlights on display, making it all the more eye-catching.
#20: Ash Blonde Balayage with Dark Roots
Here’s a lovely idea of balayage for brunettes. If you are not sure how your own hair will look after the transformation, check out this before/after image. Adding a cool blonde tone to your hair will suit you and make you look younger if your skin undertone is cool too.
Balayage brunette hair has a world of possibilities open to it. Experiment with any color of your choice and create a balayage style that fits you perfectly. If you’re not ready for the full-on commitment of a stark color contrast, start with subtler highlights and ease into the trend. Gone are the days of monotone hair, so hop on board and start mixing colors.

Are you ready for something totally uh-ma-zing? Victoria KyriaKides‘ Bridal Spring 2018 Collection “Le Boudoir” is so insanely beautiful, it’s going to blow you away! In her new array of bridal gowns Victoria brings a flirtatious femininity to her work, featuring a new generation of lace (3-D, cotton, individually cut & sewn, intricate small leaves and vines) to compose Wedding Dresses that are nothing but glamorous pieces of art. If you are looking for something dramatic and out-of-the-charts gorgeous for your wedding day look, you came to the right place my friend. Spend some time drooling over these frothy creations in THE FULL GALLERY— we know we did!
“Taking center stage in the collection is the new generation of lace: 3-D, cotton, individually cut & sewn, intricate small leaves and vines. They flutter softly covering the fitted bodice and cascade down the back of a super soft blush tulle skirt. This innovative lace is still romantic but feels very new and modern. The 3-D effect similarly prevails in a sensational, ethereal ballgown skirt adorned with wispy ostrich feathers and juxtaposed with a luxurious knit lace, snug T-shirt bodice. The dress gives the illusion of a 2-piece look. French tulle soft A-line skirts are renewed with the addition of (organza) finished edges. This lends to a new level of formality. Graceful, romantic trains are trimmed and scalloped. For the bride seeking that wow effect, a stunningly fitted, pure white Chantilly lace gown is embroidered with softly twinkling clear sequin embellishments. Patterns become more alluring and vivid this spring. A graphic teardrop flower pattern sets the stage for the hopelessly romantic yet chic and modern bride. Fluttering long petal cap sleeves add elegance, and a butterfly sweetheart neckline lends charm. A number of dresses are styled with exquisite capelets. Any bride would create a dramatic entrance in the white cotton, cross-box knit fabric with floating clear sequin jacket adorned with ostrich feather sleeves. The capelet and jacket collection can also be styled by the chic woman to be worn to any everyday occasion. Always elegant, ultra-glamorous and romantic, the Victoria KyriaKides spring 2018 collection will please any discerning bride looking for exceptional craftsmanship, impeccable fit and the next elevated level of fashion.”

“The new Pinella Passaro 2018 bridal collection is a perfect match of different styles, a mix of sartorial tradition with trends from the world of bridal and haute couture. Romantic, vintage, boho-chic, mediterranean: in every wedding gown, Pinella tries to bring her personal point of view about beauty and excellence in quality. Each dress by Pinella is unique — “elegance is in the details” is her motto, and immaculately executed, her tribute to made in Italy design.”
