Reverse balayage is when you add depth into lighter hair, rather than light into darker hair. This could be to break up some blonde, add depth and dimension or for an easier grow out. 

Rather than a blonde look, you'll get a primarily brunette look but with ribbons of blonde going throughout or perhaps just a little bit of blonde on the ends.

Great for going darker in the winter but keeping that on trend balayage look!


The information

Who is it for?

Reverse balayage is great for blondes who fancy bringing it down notch or two and going for something more wintery, dimensional and 'bronde' (brunette/blonde) rather than bright blonde.

What to expect?

A root colour will be applied along with darker foils throughout. This is to break up the lightness of the blonde. A rich brunette mixed with lighter tones can give you a sense of opulence and granduer.
