Let’s have a hairversation about balayage and one of our favorite shades, honey balayage.  It’s sweet, warm, glowing, and gorgeous. Don’t confuse balayage, a seamless blend, with ombre, a clear fade line between colors.

Elle Magazine describes balayage as the “low-key sister” of ombre and recognizes British singer-songwriter Izzy Bizu, who sports honey balayage as a celebrity who does the balayage hairstyle right.

Instead of a perfect fade, keep some ends a little darker to add dimension to your summer look. This will bode especially well when your hair naturally gains texture from an ocean dip.

According to therighthairstyles.com, honey balayage looks great on almost any base hair color.

Honey balayage is a golden mean between highlights in blonde and brown. The one thing remains tricky – honey is warm, so you need to check if it will flatter your skin tone.

In general, the ideal combination for honey balayage is a light warm complexion with darker hair. The formula works with any eye color. So, if your skin has warm undertones, all shades of honey will be a right fit for you. According to colorists, the best skin tones for this type of highlights are olive, peachy, reddish, and sometimes dark deep skin tones. Golden balayage is also used to hide gray hairs, or as a transition from dark hair color to something lighter and cooler.

Hair Trend Weigh In: Unicorn Rainbow Hair

Hair Trend Weigh In: Unicorn Hair

Two years ago, what we thought was a passing whimsical fad, is now a full-blown color trend: Unicorn Rainbow Hair. We’re way beyond the My Little Pony obsession and deeply rooted in the power of multicolor hair expression.

In What’s Really Behind Unicorn Fever, a 2017 Refinery 29 article, Jess Weiner, a brand strategist and CEO of Talk To Jess, explains:

Women are in need of fantastical magic in their lives right now, because we’re surrounded by culture and politics that are very bleak and dark and oppressive,” she says. “Unicorns are rare, they’re powerful, and they’re imaginary, so they’re capable of anything. And they do have a certain girly undertone because many of us associate them with our childhood, so they’re unapologetically feminine. Why wouldn’t we own something that’s just for us and inspires us to believe in our otherworldly capabilities? We’re being faced with some dire messaging around being female. Unicorns are our chance to escape and have some fun.

And speaking of unapologetically feminine, powerful, and fun, look no further than Cardi B. and Nikki Minaj. The following excerpt, originally published at bet.com, found a common bond between the two rap divas.

No Cap! Cardi B And Nicki Minaj Are Back Slaying The Unicorn Rainbow Hair

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have feuded in the past, but these two have more in common than being super star rappers, they both have a love for the rainbow color unicorn inspired wigs.

ICYMI: Nicki has been going through a complete makeover. After firing her entire glam squad, the 35-year-old rapper showed off her fleshly laid wig done by her new stylist, Arrogant Tae, and fans instantly fell in love with her pastel multi-colored half-up-half-down ‘do.

If you’re considering Unicorn Rainbow Hair, consult with your hairstylist. Show pictures so that he/she can see what you have in mind. A few words of caution. Unicorn Rainbow color is not a hair transformation to try at home. It requires the expertise and artistry of a trained professional. Are you ready to rock Unicorn Rainbow Hair?

In this edition of the beYOUtiful Life, let’s look at one of the hair colors Nicki Minaj rocked to usher in the start of a new season. We just have to ask, orange you obsessed?  We confess this color gives us life!

It’s all pumpkin spice lattes, chunky knits, and jack-o-lanterns from here on out, and some people are expressing that more boldly than others. Nicki Minaj now has orange hair, and it’s going to inspire you to step up your own hair game this autumn.

A post shared by Barbie® (@nickiminaj) on

She posted the new look to her Instagram, sharing a series of video clips of her at the Queen Radio studio, right before she recorded the most recent sixth episode. (For those not in the know, Queen Radio is Minaj’s new radio show on Beats 1, which premiered earlier in August.) In the first clip, Minaj debuts her orange hair in a high half-pony, making a face like a Barbie, and moving around the camera to show different angles of her satin pink suit. The caption read #BarbieDreams, referencing one of the songs on her newest album, Queen.

Sitting in front of her pink “Queen Radio” sign and decked out all in pink and diamonds, the orange hair especially popped against the saturated rose colors.

Her hair was left in crimped waves, with the top half thrown into an I Dream of Jeannie-esque ponytail wrapped with a gold hair tie that helped it stay firmly up. The hue is a vibrant, neon orange shade that makes a bold statement.

But just because the rap icon changed her hair color doesn’t necessarily mean it will stay that shade for too long. Just a day later, Minaj posted another short video onto Instagram, where she was sitting in the back seat of a car with her black hair curling and her hoodie up, listening to some of her older tracks while on her way to her Philadelphia concert.

Having said that, the artist debuted another orange-tinged hair look at the actual show, wearing an ombre orange hairstyle that went well past her waist. It was bright yellow on top that faded into a fiery orange, proving that the sunset color palette is definitely in this season.

This also isn’t the first time that she donned neon orange hair, where she also played with the color back in 2010, just in a short, teased bob. Rocking lots of volume and curling in at the ends, it was a more retro take than her back-skimming locks eight years later.

Seeing how Minaj is known for her frequent hair changes, this bright orange look probably won’t stick around for too long, but it’s amazing to see while it lasts.

Even on a stylist’s day off, she – that would be me – is still thinking about your hair! Welcome to my Mane-ly Monday, a time and space for collective observations and opinions on all things hair: the trends, techniques, treatments, tools, environment and more. As I reflect and recharge, I am inspired by R&B diva, K. Michelle. Her hair choices of late have been on point.  Take a look at this amazing color and cut she’s rocking in this photo featured on essence.com.

Recently, the vocalist was spotted on a host of media tours for her highly-anticipated sophomore album, More Issues Than Vogue, with a vibrant cherry-red bob. And, we were so excited to see it. Clearly, she’s serving the sex appeal of a blonde, but without the harsh color.
