“It’s important for your stylist to consider skin tone and eye color to choose the best balayage fit,” Shemanayeva says.

Blend Your Balayage

The opportunity to personalize your balayage doesn’t end with choosing a color! We’re talking blends.

“I like all blends, but one that I find most beautiful and appealing is caramel mixed with pinky, powder shades," Shemanayeva says.

Combine this with a balayage technique on dark hair for unbeatable style and maximum radiant results.

Style Your Balayage

“Balayage always looks great with layered or graded forms. It also looks marvelous on mid or long length hair. You can also consider wavy or textured hairstyles," Shemanayeva explains.

Try Tecni.Art Soft Curls Mousse for curvaceous hair results to show off the multi-tonal dimension of your balayage on dark hair.
