Beautiful Balayage and Ombre Trends for 2022

Summer and balayage or ombre go hand in hand, as flawlessly paired as sun and sand or backyards and barbecues. It’s our opportunity to essentially wear the essence of summer, with a low maintenance dimensional color that seems kissed by the sun and born from lazy-days in the shade or at the beach. It’s the go-to color trend for celebrities and for any gorgeous gal and this summer, we’ve added a complete palette of new shades for you to love and enjoy in both balayage and ombre.

Celebrity Hair Color Trends Balayage

What’s the difference between balayage and ombre?

Balayage first popped up in France in the 1970s and translated means, “to sweep”, in reference to the method of freeform painting hair color on the hair as opposed to the traditional method of foiling. The result is a gradual, dimensional highlight effect that is subtle and not too starkly contrasted.

Celebrity Color Inspiration

Looking for some hairstyle inspiration for summer? We rounded up the who’s who showing the best balayage and ombre looks!

Cara Delevingne

The ever stunning Cara Delevingne is no stranger to classic balayage and ombre, perpetually lightening things up when it comes to summer.

Chrissy Teigen

When it comes to summertime hair, the model, Mom and personality loves ombre and balayage but prefers to keep things rich. From darker shadow roots to multidimensional “expensive brunette” she shows how much variety you can find in making your color choice for the season.

New Shades for 2022!

Ombre is a color effect whereby hair is split into two sections of color where one blends into the other. The word also has French roots, where the technique was born and means “to shade”. Usually the effect has a darker color closest to the heads that transitions to a lighter color.
