10 Asian Balayage Hair Ideas You Will Love

Looking for Asian balayage inspiration? Balayage is one of the hottest trends right and always looks good year around. For summer we like to go a bit lighter for that "California sunkissed" effect but darker highlights look gorgeous for fall and winter. 

Asian hair can be a little bit tricky to lighten but if your stylist is skilled and uses Olaplex you can definitely go much lighter. Remember that it can take a few sessions in order to achieve your desired look. Here are some of our favorite Asian balayage instagram worthy looks. 

Caramel Balayage On Asian Hair

A subtle balayage like this won't damage your hair as it doesn't require as much lightning as more dramatic looks. It's also lower maintenance and you could probably go for up to 6 months without a retouch if you're so inclined. 

Cool Blonde Highlights On Asian Hair

You'll need a purple shampoo for sure if you want to keep your locks as icy as in the above photo.
