Balayage!

balyBalayage is a French hair coloring technique. It’s a freehand technique where the hair color is applied by “hand sweeping” for a more natural look. Because the color is painted on the hair vertically, you will not get that dreaded “line” or see grow out as noticeably, making time between salon appointments longer. And unlike ombre’ you can straighten your hair without having to worry about seeing noticeable lines of color!

I used the balayage technique to achieve these natural beachy highlights. Balayage creates depth and dimension, and leaves you with a beautiful sun-kissed look!

Lovin’ the LOB

Loving the LOB [long bob] it’s just so effortlessly chic! This cut works on straight and wavy hair. My personal fav is the flat-ironed wave (see tips below).

Clamp halfway down a strand of hair and turn it back away from your face. Keep the iron at that angle and slowly move it down the hair shaft, while continually rotating to the ends. Sometimes I leave the ends out to give more of an edgy look.
