What’s Trending in Hair
If you’ve opened a magazine in the last few months, there is no way you escaped the biggest trend in hair color: balayage.

Or better yet, how do you pronounce it? Balayge, meaning ‘to sweep’ in French, is a coloring technique that involves hand painting color in a fluid sweeping motion.
