Balayage highlights

Highlights have now moved away from uniform ‘stripes’ and are being used to add even more depth and dimension to fine hair.

For example, some lighter balayage highlights around the face and sides create the impression of more hair and can be placed to accentuate your best facial feature, too.

Try a short layered bob, with a few highlights in the same colour as your eyes, to bring out their colour in a very flattering way!

Thick hair

On thick or coarse hair, a short layered bob hairstyle can do some effective thinning to produce a beautifully shaped silhouette that will fall into shape very easily after washing.
