Dreaming of a sun-kissed look? Brunette balayage is the perfect way to add dimension and depth to your hair. We caught up with renowned stylist, Linda Miller, to get her expert insights on this trendy hair color technique.

Choosing the Right Shade

According to Linda, the key is to find the perfect shade that complements your natural hair color and skin tone. “Brunette balayage can work for all skin tones, but the key is to find the right shade of brunette that complements your skin tone,” she says. If you have a warm skin tone, consider warmer shades like caramel or honey. For cooler skin tones, try ash or beige tones. Olive skin tones can pull off a wide range of brunette shades, making them quite versatile.

Maintaining Your Brunette Balayage

Linda explains that the beauty of balayage is that it’s a low-maintenance hairstyle. “You can go three to six months before needing a touch-up, depending on the look you’re going for,” she notes. However, it’s important to use the right products to maintain your color and keep your hair healthy. She recommends using color-safe shampoo and conditioner, along with a good heat protectant and a hair mask to keep your strands nourished.
