According to Pinterest’s top hair trend predictions for 2016 “fluid hair painting uses a similar painting technique to balayage.” But this hair coloring technique uses more than just lightening or one color. It uses a full spectrum of beautiful pastel shades.

Balayage hair painting creates a subtle and beautiful variation in the color and tone of your hair. You don’t need light hair, you don’t need to go as drastic as a ombre or dip dye lightening. These chocolate and caramel balayage colors are perfect for your already dark hair that you want to keep dark and beautiful. And add just a touch of softer browns and depth to your natural color for a rich brunette color.

Moving on from the ombre hair coloring style there’s a new trend of babylights. So what are these new so-called babylights? Babylights are very thin highlights sprinkled throughout your hair to give it color depth and highlight movement without being chunky.
