Scroll through Instagram’s balayage hairstyles and you can’t help but find yourself vying for the same shades.
Before balayage rose to popularity, highlights were placed as close to the roots as possible and were something you would have to touch up every month. But balayage gives you the freedom of a lived in look that stays looking fresh for months with little maintenance.
Unlike traditional foil highlights, balayage looks softer. This is because balayaged highlights are painted on, diffusing any hard lines to create a natural, lived-in look.
Although it may look natural, lots of work goes into it, which is why you’ll want to see a balayage expert to get it done. You’ll find them at Juju Hair Lounge, a salon of talented stylists that’s located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, just steps away from the SkyTrain’s Granville station.
They’re offering one lucky Daily Hive reader a chance to win one of their signature balayage colour services plus a deep conditioning treatment and haircut for free. The best part is that Juju Hair Lounge specializes in balayage and other advanced colour services, so if you win, you’ll know your hair is in good hands.

Balayage looks incredible on short, textured hairstyles, like this one with metallic ash brown tones.
If you’re tired of blonde, you can take it up a notch with silver. This look is easiest to achieve on natural blondes or people with pre-lightened blonde hair.
There’s a shade of blonde for everyone, and you can try several different shades of blonde for a more natural, lived in look.
