Here’s a young and lively look created by cutting fine or medium-textured hair into long, shaggy layers.  Tapered textured tips give a nicely-judged windswept finish, that can also be worn in smooth or waved styles.  The balayage-ombré uses a variety of shades that are warmer and cooler than the model’s natural light brown hair-color.   And this allows the model, who has skin with a warm undertone, to wear cool ash-tones – without them looking mismatched to her complexion!

This style is flat around the top and has a little extra width at the sides and at chin level.  So this is a good shape to wear if you need to disguise a wide forehead and a narrow chin, on a heart-shaped face.  The center-parting and hair worn to ‘cut-off’ the edges of a square forehead, make a triangle-shape that creates appealing vertical symmetry.  The roots are dark taupe, which is a gray-brown shade without any warmth.  And the balayage of medium-beige-blonde, fading to a neutral-blonde ombré are just what you need to tone down a ‘ruddy’ skin-tone!

Classic sleek straight lob for fine hair – balayage ombré hairstyles for shoulder length hair

Here’s a shoulder-length hairstyle that’s easy-care and elegant, and that’s why it’s such a popular cut for medium and fine hair.  To keep the density of fine hair intact, the hair is not layered, except for concave shaping at the tips and shorter layers around the face.  The long ‘roots’ section is natural, expresso-brown, so blonde vertical highlighting is a great way to add movement and light-reflecting texture.  These highlights are much lighter than the base, but the effect is subtle and classy.  And that’s because they are also a cool tone, like the base.

Super-cool white-blonde with gray roots

White-blonde and gray roots are the sophisticated version of platinum with black roots.  And this gray, beige-blonde and white-blonde color design, with blue toner, is a stunning modern look for fine, shoulder-length haircuts.  These colors are suitable for skin which has a cool undertone and that doesn’t depend on whether your skin in pale, medium or dark.  Skin’s undertones are fixed for life and don’t change if you get a sun-tan.  Shorter layers around the face soften the line and textured tips add edge to this ultra-modern look!

I can’t help it, whenever I see these warm-chocolate hairstyles with copper-beige-blonde balayage, I get a craving for orange-flavored chocolate!  But it’s more than that, this sophisticated shoulder-length haircut with ultra-loose braid texture looks very fresh and attractive.  This lovely hairstyle suits medium to thick hair, as the overlapping sections divide the hair to show more thickness underneath.  Without layers, the same-length look retains hair’s natural density, for lovely, feminine waves and curves around the bottom edge!

Caramel and honey-beige bend-waves on long angled bob haircut

Today’s final balayage-ombré hairstyle is a well-controlled color contrast, moving from coffee-dark roots to pale, beige-blonde.  The key to success in all of today’s multi-shade hair designs is expert blending of colors that come from the same tone set.  In this trendy, long angled bob the color graduation follows the natural undertones contained in the model’s natural hair color.  There’s a nice hint of copper highlighting the waves, but the lovely mid-beige-blonde shade of the lower lengths keeps the look soft and feminine!
