Looking for Asian balayage inspiration? Balayage is one of the hottest trends right and always looks good year around. For summer we like to go a bit lighter for that “California sunkissed” effect but darker highlights look gorgeous for fall and winter.
Asian hair can be a little bit tricky to lighten but if your stylist is skilled and uses Olaplex you can definitely go much lighter. Remember that it can take a few sessions in order to achieve your desired look. Here are some of our favorite Asian balayage instagram worthy looks.
Caramel Balayage On Asian Hair
We love the look of warmer caramel tones as it can really flatter golden and warmer Asian skin tones. A subtle balayage like this won’t damage your hair as it doesn’t require as much lightning as more dramatic looks. It’s also lower maintenance and you could probably go for up to 6 months without a retouch if you’re so inclined.
Cool Blonde Highlights On Asian Hair
Icy and cooler balayage highlights are super trendy and in right now. We love the look of these icy blonde highlights. Ask your stylist to “root” your hair and keep the root darker so that it grow out without a harsh line of demarcation. You’ll need a purple shampoo for sure if you want to keep your locks as icy as in the above photo.
Asian Balayage On A Lob
We love the carefree and summery look of this sunkissed locks. These highlights look perfect for summer. We love the smooth waves which can be achieved with a big barrel curling iron and a bit of texturizing spray.
Blonde Ombre Balayage
We love the look of these icy blonde highlights on long and layered Asian hair. Long layers are the perfect cut to show off your highlights. As a rule the color should always be darker at the root and turn brighter and lighter down the shaft.
Ashy Brunette Balayage
If you want a more natural and low maintenance look that isn’t too warm opt for ashy brunette highlights. These blend in perfectly with her hair color and for a sultry brunette look with a touch of sass.
Dramatic Balayage On Asian Hair
We love the contrast of these dramatic blonde highlights. Placement is lighter at the front and towards the bottom. A few lighter face framing highlights can go a long way in changing your look instantly.
Subtle Grey Balayage On A Straight Blunt Cut
We love how subtle this grey look is and it’s super flattering on Asian hair. It’s super trendy thanks to the silvery grey color and blunt cut. We like how it’s darker at the root which means it will grow out nicely without lots of maintenance.
If you can’t get enough of the silver hair trend you may want to try a look similar to this one. It’s silver/grey throughout but with a darker root at the top. If you are going to get silver hair you will need to use a silver shampoo just about every time you wash in order to keep your color
Ashy Blonde Balayage
Here is a bit of hairspiration if you are thinking about going ashier and blonder. Remember that it can take a few sessions for your hair to get as blonde as in the pic; especially if you are starting off with jet black hair.
Ashy Brunette On Long Layered Hair
We love this look and would describe this style has bombshell or Victoria’s Secret hair. The highlights are subtle and it really flatters her skin tone.
