Balayage Alternatives to Try for Your Summer Hair Color


Maintaining our color with regular salon visits has gotten a little tricky over the past few years. Especially for those of us on the balayage trend. Between ultra-long roots and the inevitable copper, your classic cool-girl color probably needs an overhaul. And while we can’t give you a full list of foils on the internet (although we’d love to help a girl), we can bring you certified summer color inspiration to cure your blues balayage. We dream of sunny locks and lighter locks this season. Check out the seven cool, sun-kissed shades we’ll be rocking.

Ash Blonde Babylights

Subtlety is the key to a realistic post-quarantine hair transition. Achieve the perfect ash blonde tone with strategically placed ultra-thin babylights. This technique gives your mane a healthy but completely natural shine.

Caramel Balayage

This one is for brunette girls. A chocolate base pairs perfectly with a caramel balayage, for an absolutely delicious finished product.

Solid gold

Nothing says summer like a glam golden hue. Capture the glow of a sunny day at the beach with an ultra rich golden tone this season.

Honey Brunette

Rearranging your balayage doesn’t have to mean ditching your dark locks. A honey brunette is the perfect way to add a little something special to an already gorgeous espresso mane.


If honey brunette is too subtle for your summer makeover, opt for a blonde instead. This ombre sensation is taking over Instagram, with celebrities like Kylie Jenner jumping on the trend.

Strawberry Balayage

This strawberry balayage is not your average blonde baby. This red-tinted shade is full of body and dimension. With ultra-lightweight ends and longer roots, strawberry balayage is a bold shade approved for growth.


Elevate your brunette locks to breathtaking new heights. With perfectly blended blonde accents, this cool-girl light brunette is as smooth as your favorite coffee drink.
