3. Oozing ombre oomph

If you want to go super light, choose a dirty blonde for the middle section of your hair length and an out-and-out blonde for the ends. Doesn’t this look spectacular?
4. Ravishing in red

So, it’s no wonder we couldn’t help but add her picture to this list. You can make this different by adding some light brown highlights as well, to make this one a winning look.
5. Dark drama

This might be a tad bit understated, but it’s definitely a look to take inspiration from.

9. Brace for balayage

Here, any shade lighter than your base colour is applied free-hand onto the hair. This looks more natural and gives the hair a layered and lovely look. Give it a shot!
10. Enigmatic ends
