Honey balayage is a golden mean between highlights in blonde and brown. That’s why it looks great on almost any base hair color. The one thing remains tricky – honey is warm, so you need to check if it will flatter your skin tone. Read all details below!

In general, the ideal combination for honey balayage is a light warm complexion with darker hair. The formula works with any eye color. So, if your skin has warm undertones, all shades of honey will be a right fit for you. According to colorists, the best skin tones for this type of highlights are olive, peachy, reddish, and sometimes dark deep skin tones. Golden balayage is also used to hide gray hairs, or as a transition from dark hair color to something lighter and cooler.
