I've caught the bug. After my first hair-coloring experience earlier this year, it was finally time for a touch-up. Last time, I went with an ombre technique, blending my dark hair into a lighter, caramel color.
This time though, I wanted to keep some of my darker hair and have a little more contrast throughout, so I asked for a highlighted look instead. While I was looking for ideas, I came across a trend called "Balayage" - which is a technique of painting strands of hair to create a more natural, sun-kissed look.
See Ombre vs. Balayage for more info...
I asked my stylist to make me look like Lily Aldridge or Kate Beckinsale. :) She did her best with what she had to work with!
I'm happy! It's always fun to look a little different for a change.
