Caramel balayage as seen on Instagram, your Autumn hair colour is here!

Caramel Balayage is the hair colour technique you'll be Falling for this Autumn, and we can't get enough of it!

Whenever we're looking to get our hair trend radar tingling, a quick flick through the #lorealpro Instagram feed usually does the trick! The most recent online trend to get us excited has a much more natural feel when compared to the makeup hair colour movement, but at the same time is much more low maintenance – which we love. Introducing caramel balayage!

The colour

The most common version of caramel balayage popping up in salons around the world is formed around a dark brown base hair colour (think coffee, chocolate or chestnut tones), and then punctuated with swirls of warm caramel highlights (think toffee, or honey, or copper colours). All this caramel talk is making us hungry!

The fantastic thing about caramel hair colours is that they are flattering to most skin tones. They pair perfectly with dark brunette roots, but are equally gorgeous when set against more blonde shades. Depending how you like your caramel, you can also dial the colour up or down to suit your tastes!

The Upkeep

Caramel Balayage is a natural looking and low maintenance style, which means you won't have to head back to your local salon every few weeks to get a touch up. All coloured hair however can do with a little help to maintain the shade intensity long after you've left the salon. Invest in your home hair care routine by investing in some products that ensure your coloured hair stays soft, hydrated and in the best possible condition. We recommend the Serie Expert and !

The styling

As seen in almost all of our Instagram examples, the best hairstyle for these caramel colours involves luscious locks with lots of body and movement. Like a lot of balayage hair colours, we love seeing it styled in loose waves, to really show off those beautiful tonal variations.

So how can you indulge your sweet tooth and get a taste of caramel colouring?

Easy – ask your local L'Oréal Professionnel stylist! They'll help you create some tailor-made highlights for your tone of skin. We recommend , achieving perfect results in only one step.
