If you’re interested in hair trends at all, you’ll have noticed the balayage trend that’s been sweeping the world for the past few years. You may have added highlights or ombré fades to get those hand-painted highlights and achieve that great blended effect. This look is especially effective for those of us who can’t always get to a hairdresser, as the highlights melt smoothly into the hair and therefore cause no trouble when growing out.
However, the look has been around for a while and we’ve been looking for a new trend to follow. Luckily, there’s a brand-new update to the balayage trend whicih is already taking over Instagram and the red carpet: Tiger Eye hair colour.
This balayage-like technique is inspired by the tiger eye gemstone and its rich brown and gold tones. Warm colours like caramel, bronze and gold are blended into a warm or dark chocolate base using a technique that is similar to balayage. It creates a seamless result for your mane.
Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Alba are just two of the numerous celebrities who have already discovered Tiger Eye hair. We’re sure that the trend will only keep growing, so have a look at these photos if you’re looking for your own hair inspiration. Depending on your skin tone there are several possible Tiger Eye hairstyles for you. If you’re thinking of getting into Tiger Eye hair, it’s best to consult with your hairdresser, who will be able to tell you what will best suit you.
