Makeover Masterpiece

Story and photos provided by LaRitz Salon & Spa

If you’ve been on Pinterest at all this fall, then you’ve seen the hottest trend, reverse balayage. Balayage is most commonly thought of as highlighting by painting blonde throughout the hair. This creates a natural sun-kissed blonde look. It was one of the most requested techniques in the salon this summer. Balayaging doesn’t just mean using lighter shades, however. It can also be utilized by using lowlights instead of highlights; hence “reverse” balayage. What our stylists love about this trend is that it’s a great transition from summer to fall/winter. The reverse balayage also goes perfect with the shadow root trend for those who are wanting to make a more dramatic change. The photos showcased in this article are actual looks created by our talented stylists. One of our favorite things about this technique is that it can be used on a lot of different lengths of hair. Another cool option is that it doesn’t only have to be used with natural colors, but bold colors as well! If you’re wanting a change for the holiday season, the reverse balayage might be the perfect style for you.
