Cure Your Balayage Boredom With These 7 Sunny Shades

Maintaining our color with regular salon visits has become a bit tricky over the past few years. Especially for those of us on the balayage trend. Between ultra-long roots and unavoidable brassiness, your classic cool-girl color is probably in need of a revamp. And while we can’t give you a full head of foils over the internet (as much as we’d like to help a girl out), we can bring you some summer-certified color inspiration to cure your balayage blues. We’re dreaming of sun-kissed strands and lighter locks this season. Check out the seven fresh sunny shades we’ll be rocking.

Ash Blonde Babylights

Subtlety is the key to a realistic post-quarantine tresse transition. Achieve the perfect ash blonde tone with strategically placed, ultra-tiny babylights. This technique gives your mane a healthy but totally natural-looking glow.

Caramel Balayage

This one is for the brunette babes. A chocolate base pairs perfectly with a caramel balayage throughout, for a finished product that is absolutely delicious.

Solid Gold

Nothing says summer like a glamorous golden hue. Capture the radiance of a sunny day at the beach with an ultra-rich, all-over gold tone this season.

Honey Brunette

Revamping your balayage doesn’t have to mean ditching your dark locks. A honey brunette is the ideal way to add a little something special to an already gorgeous espresso mane.


If honey brunette is too subtle for your summer transformation, opt for a bronde instead. This shade sensation is taking over Instagram, with celebrities like Kylie Jenner getting up on the trend.

Strawberry Balayage

This strawberry balayage is not your average baby blonde. This red-tinged shade is full of body and dimension. With ultra-light ends and longer roots, strawberry balayage is a bold hue that’s grow-out approved.


Lift your brunette strands to breathtaking new heights. With perfectly blended blonde accents, this cool-girl light brunette is as smooth as your favorite coffee beverage.
