#35: Golden Blonde Balayage for Short Curly Hair
This short balayage ‘do is a full head of warm, golden dimensional painted highlights and a stacked curly bob with bangs. If you want this short balayaged hair, book a full balayage highlight and curl shaping. Find a stylist who only uses balayage on short hair because it’s more gentle on your hair than foil highlights. It doesn’t conduct heat as foil does, which can cause your hair to overprocess and damages your curls. The result is a dimensional balayage highlight with many tones in one process.
Since balayage (a true balayage, not foils used to try and create a dimensional look) doesn’t use foil to conduct heat, you will only be guaranteed a blonde result if you have never processed your hair and have naturally blonde hair. Sometimes it takes multiple sessions to get to blonde, especially if you have naturally dark hair.

This is one of the excellent short haircuts for women with thin locks.

This is a series of mushroom brown ash blonde balayage. If you want it more silvery than brown, play with formulating with similar tones. The money piece trend is in, and women are very vocal about wanting styles with money pieces.
Be mindful that these balayage highlights may not be achieved in one session. Be prepared to be there for about 4-5 hours, especially if you have darker hair. Rushing through this is the worst thing you can have your hairstylist do. It’s a high-maintenance color, so investing in products is a must. Try Isles Formula Shampoo, Conditioner, and their Finishing Serum. It enhances the balyage; you can go a week without washing it.
#38: Delicious Caramel and Chocolate Balayage
If it’s your first time getting highlights, consider using a balayage on your shorter hair for a low-maintenance color with soft chocolate brown and caramel honey tones. Adding the highlights will accent your cut, so opt for a short, slight A-line bob with some soft layering for movement.
This is a great example of how to balayage short hair, as almost any girl can wear even taking it a little shorter or longer. It has an easy, effortless style with a shape that works for most hair types with styling options. With a blowout balm, you can do a smooth blowout. Then the next morning, you can wand some loose waves with a little dry texture spray or scrunch some mousse in for a natural wave.
