I Want a Lighter Hair Color That Looks Natural, What Should I ask for?

If you would rather stay with a more natural-looking blonde hair color, you should ask you for a sun kissed balayage. Balayage is the most popular hair coloring technique around! The balayage is a technique where hair color is hand-painted onto certain sections of the hair, your roots are then “stretched”, with the color gradually brightening towards the ends of your hair. We can also bump your base color or even do a gorgeous shadow root.
