Sun-kissed Hair

Blades stylist Kristen Archer shares her top tips for getting that celebrity look this summer!

This time of year, everyone is looking to celebrate summer with a sun-kissed glow! For brunettes, subtle highlights add dimension and shine, while blondes have a chance to be daring, taking their hair lighter than ever.

But if you’re thinking that it’s finally time to hop on the ombré train, you’re mistaken.

Instead, let’s try balayage, a free-hand painting method that gives you a one-of-a-kind finish and reduces our salon’s consumption of aluminum foils! Quicker than traditional highlighting, balayage will have you looking and feeling like an A List celebrity without having to spend hours allowing your hair to process. lc-bal

The best part of balayage? It’s a new experience every time! Whether you’re trying to bring some dimension and life to your brunette beauty, or punch up your golden locks, balayage can be applied to serve your individual needs in a fun and creative way.
