What the Cool Kids Are Wearing: Hair Color Edition
From sombré to pastel, the new hues to try in 2014
Who Can Pull It Off: Literally anyone can pull off a stylish balayage color treatment, just be mindful of how much contrast and how much color you want.
What to Ask For: Be specific about what shades you want, how far apart you want them and where you'd like them placed. This season's trend favors more natural colors like caramel, rather than high-contrast blonde. Face-framing ribbons of color help brighten any complexion, Petroff says.
Beware Of: Consider the texture of your hair if you're thinking about doing a balayage color treatment. If you have finer hair, you'll want lighter, less chunky pieces of color. Thicker, curly hair needs larger sections of color to stand out, advises Petroff. But if you really want a high level of contrast, the balayage trend probably isn't for you. You should consider foil highlights.
