While bright and vibrant hair colours may get you a double tap on Instagram, pastel hues and rainbow hair colours are not the only way to stand out. Just because black and brown hair colours are acceptable in the workplace, that doesn't mean they have to be boring.
Chez Vous Hair Salon shows us how you can rock brown tresses and just why brown and beautiful is befitting of #hairporn as well!
Take a peek below and let us know which are your favourites ...
Balayage is a freehand colouring technique that results in a well-blended natural look with minimal harsh or demarcation lines.
Coupled with shadow roots (darker roots) and melted hair colouring technique (gradual blending of colours from dark to light), it can reduce the need for frequent root retouch.
Going for darker roots ensures that you don't have to deal with unsightly root regrowth you would typically see when the roots don't match the rest of the hair colour. Let's face it, most of us don't have the time or money to visit the salon as often for a root retouch.
A balayage, on the other hand, lets you get away with root regrowth, making it ideal for working professionals who want to look trendy but are too busy for regular visits to the salon,
How dark or light you choose to go is entirely up to your preference.
There are various shades of brown you can go for and you can also mix the different shades with colour melting technique that allows for a smooth transition from one colour to the next.
Unlike ombre which doesn't look best on straight hair, balayage might be a better alternative for those who don't have natural curls or the time to curl their hair daily. The seamless blend with no harsh lines means even if you wear your hair straighter, your balayage colour will still be a beauty!
If balayage is still too flashy for your liking, opt for faux babylights instead. Babylights are very fine, subtle highlights that are meant to look like the natural hair color of Caucasian children. The results on Asian hair is subtle, multi-dimensional and looks best when coupled with sections of balayage and panel highlights. Hence the term, faux babylights.
Ash Brown Babylights
Babylights are a lot more natural looking then balayage as the highlights tend to be very fine.This makes it perfect for those who work in a conservative work environment or those of you who just want to add a tinge of colour to their hair. Of course, if you are going for lighter or bolder colours, the overall look will not look as natural. Unless you are opting for brown shades that are similar to your natural hair colour.

You can also add in different colours to give your hair a more multi-dimensional look, like this rose brown or ash brown and charcoal grey that is a mix of balayage and babylights. Although a tiny bit more striking, it still looks softer than doing balayage technique alone. Hence, if you are keen on trying vibrant colours but prefer it to be subtle, go for faux babylights!
