It’s time to deck the halls and cozy up with a hot new hairstyle for the chilly days ahead. From Christmas parties to holiday shopping in downtown Denver, a chic, versatile look is essential. Stay on trend this season with a cut and color to inspire merriment. Balayage is the perfect highlighting choice for adding a subtle pop of sunshine to your winter locks. Turn heads with these fresh balayage bang styles.
1. Classic French Bangs
Imagine the kind of bangs that look amazing when paired with a scarf and pea coat. Balayage with classic French bangs can take your style from dull to edgy, retro, and everything in between. A hint of light brown balayage works well with “baby bangs” and cascading gold curls.
This look works especially well for round and heart-shaped faces. Dress it up with a touch of red lipstick for holiday-inspired glamour!
2. Balayage with Side Swept Bangs
Not ready to commit to the upkeep of traditional bangs? Side swept bangs are a fantastic twist on a classic. They look great with any face shape, and highlights can be woven in for a subtle chic that’s sure to be the belle of any Christmas ball.
3. Pixie Cut with Choppy Bangs
Pixie cuts aren’t just for summer! Be a winter faerie this season. Balayage works well with short hair and can bring vibrancy to fine locks.
Be daring with platinum blonde balayage and choppy bangs. If you have short hair, you’ll enjoy a fainter pop of balayage color without the ombre fade of longer styles. This look can be very low-maintenance and eye-catching. It’s quite the departure from traditional highlights and soft curls! This look is perfect for New Year’s Eve.
4. Caramel Balayage with Wispy Bangs
This style creates an instant autumn vibe. Shades of caramel and cocoa brown add depth and texture to your locks, while wispy bangs capture the ethereal quality of fall. You’ll be able to rock this look from October to March and beyond!
Timelessly beautiful, caramel balayage looks stunning on warm complexions and compliments skin tones from olive to rich ebony.
5. Black Bob with Dark Brown Balayage
Explore the dark side of balayage with a daring midnight bob. The smoothing illusion of dark brown balayage with stark black creates flawless glam. When paired with flapper bangs, you’ll be ready for a Prohibition Era Christmas Party!
The stark dimension of this style makes dark balayage an Instagram fav.
6. Ashy Blonde with a Side Fringe
Getting back to more classic interpretations of balayage, ashy blonde waves are a neutral tone that flatters almost any complexion. If you’re unsure about highlights, keeping it “natural” is a good way to break into the world of hair color. The soft aesthetic of light blonde and brown hues may trick you into thinking you’re ready for summer vacation.
If you have longer locks and you’re uncertain about a full bang, a fringe is a great option when paired with ash blonde balayage. The color blends seamlessly into the hair and creates a smooth, on-trend appearance.
7. Auburn Balayage with Barrel Bangs
Embrace your retro side with a splash of red and a curl of barrel bangs! Nothing says Christmas like a pop of auburn. Balayage can be as subtle or as dramatic as you prefer. Book a time to chat with your stylist about colors and cuts that will work for you (and with you on those in-between maintenance days!). Get ready for the bright, vibrant hair of your dreams.
Remember, it’s always important to always perform a color test prior to changing your natural hue. But that’s where our stylists come in. Our team of professionals can help you find the perfect color for your hair and be ready to celebrate the holiday season in style.
