Balayage for Black Hair Ideas 2023

Personally, I am a die-hard fan of any hair colour mixed with shades of red. Red makes you think of passion and divine feminine energy. For summer 2023, get a beautiful burgundy red balayage for your black hair. To keep the red hue looking vibrant, visit the salon every 6–8 weeks. A colour-preserving shampoo and conditioner is also essential. I myself use Pantene’s Radiant Colour Shine Shampoo and Colour Protect hair mask. They are affordable and give satisfying results.

Caramel Balayage on Black Hair

Caramel tones are one of the most popular and most suitable colours for women with black hair. The warm highlighted strands create a deep contrast with your black mane, while at the same time the caramel balayage involves a lighter bleaching process for your hair, hence, it’s not too damaging. Make sure you use a purple shampoo if you go with this balayage to avoid your highlights getting a yellowish pigmentation.

Black Hair with Golden Blonde Balayage

And now something that will surely make you a stunner this summer. If you want a life-changing look for your dark hair, then the golden blonde balayage is what you need. This type of balayage will warm up your complexion and give you the best possible summery hairstyle. Just be aware that to get the golden blonde tone, a heavier bleaching process will be involved. After, you will need to stock up on moisturizing hair products to keep your hair looking healthy.

Chocolate Brown Balayage for Black Hair

This if one of my favourites! For any girl who wants to spice up her dark locks, but keeps things looking simple and natural at the same time, a chocolate brown balayage would be perfect. The chocolate brown tones will create a glossy effect for your dark hair and give it dimension. A great choice when trying out something new for the summer, yet still playing it on the safe side.

Ash Balayage on Black Hair Idea 2023

In need of yet again another high contrast balayage for black hair idea? Then you will love this ash balayage for darker manes. The hairstyle involves your darker roots gradually blending into an icy blonde hair colour to create a chic and eye-caching look. But this balayage will involve more maintenance if you want to preserve the iciness of the blonde tone. Make sure to visit the salon every 4 weeks for a silver toner. Or you can always invest in a silver toner shampoo to preserve your colour.
