This super new hair-color design shows how effective a 3-D balayage can be to make fine/medium hair appear thicker.  The base is dark-blonde/mousey-brown which, when brightened up with a neutral blonde vertical highlights, comes vividly to life!

Adding golden blonde balayage to otherwise flat, brunette base shades adds a multitude of new and attractives features to short, wavy hairstyles.  You get a softer, warmer look to your hair that is very flattering to a lightly-tanned skin tone.  And the casual, tousled waves divide to show the darker roots for a trendy 3-D look that makes any hair appear thicker. The ‘wings’ of hair on either side of the face come from a centre part, which flatters oval face shapes.

Here’s a super daily hairstyle for straight hair or hair with a little natural movement. It’s a relaxed look with soft waves contrasted with heavily textured, choppy tips. Side partings help balance round faces and a bare forehead helps to add length to a low hairline. And soft waves falling over the sides of the face can soften a strong jawline for a prettier look. This same-length hairstyle is suitable for medium and fine hair textures, as the absence of layers retains the hair’s density.

Thick hair needs to be cut in vertical, sliced layers to remove the bulk from the tips. And you can see the layers here accentuated by casual, twisty waves with lightly highlighted tips. Cutting a medium bob with strong geometrical shape is a great way to move on from long straight hair and get more style and personality into your beauty look! The slightly off-centre parting is suitable for oval, or roundish face shapes. And leaving the forehead bare adds length to a wide face or a low hairline.

Here’s a great look for thick hair as it uses the natural volume to create a lightly bouffant curved shape and a beautifully balanced profile view.  And what really sets it apart is the super-trendy, surface texture the stylist has created with wispy half pin-curls decorating the back and nape. The side parting allows for a long, side-swept fringe. And there are subtle touches of blonde balayage around the crown, too!

Now is the time to give yourself a confidence boost with a trendy new look from one of these easy-care, attractive new short wavy hairstyles!
