50 Gorgeous Balayage Short Hair Ideas — Natural Looking Gradients

Prev1 of 51Next

As far as gradient hair is concerned, the balayage short hair dyeing technique looks like it’s here to stay. The term balayage is a French word that can be translated to mean “to sweep” or “to paint”. This is because the method used to apply dye is the freehand technique where the hair is hand painted against a backboard to create the highlight.

This results in a softer gradient and a more natural-looking tone that matches the skin tone and gives hair a glossy sun-kissed appearance. The method has been popularized due to the fact that it never looks strong and is delightfully low maintenance. Although it works best on hair that goes below the shoulders, a balayage expert can recreate the effect outstandingly on short and medium length hair.
