So, if Lived-In Color (shown here) isn't the exact same as balayage, what is it? "Lived-In Color creates a look that has a natural regrowth with no noticeable grow out line, since the darker regrowth blends into the lighter hair with no stopping or starting point," says Ramirez, who's behind this color. Think of it as a really blended, even more natural, and low-maintenance version of balayage—with all the perks.
This is a great reference guide I like to show my clients when consulting about balayage. What's great is there are so many options whether you prefer warm or cool tones and if your hair is dark or light! Which one would you choose?
