Tiger eye hair is the trend that will make you forget all about balayage
'Tiger eye hair'.
Honestly, the name alone is enough to make me want to go and change my hair. Like now.
It's the new balayage, an on-trend bronze and the reasoning behind the name is very cool.
The gals at Byrdie spoke to hairstylist Corey Tuttle to get the down low behind winter's newest hair trend and she explained why it's been coined the 'tiger eye'.
"A tigereye is an ancient stone worn for protection and confidence—it's known for its rich browns and golds".
This rich mix of browns and golds lends to a very cool bronze effect and to get the look at your salon, explain that you want:
"hand-painted caramel highlights paired with a warm, or dark chocolate base".
The hand-painted request is key because it's this technique that will give you those effortlessly cool highlights.
The end result? Something akin to the below - FAB.
