How-To: Chrissy Teigen's Fall Balayage
Chrissy Teigen likely serves an inspiration for many of the clients who come to you with pictures of their dream hair. The model is consistently on-trend with her enviable tresses—from bronde to a short-lived lob and everywhere in between.
Recently, Teigen attended the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Show and Tea in a oxblood, off-the-shoulder top and a cascading wave of hand-painted blonde locks over one shoulder. Celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham is responsible for the autumnal balayage, and Jen Atkin styled Teigen for the show.
Pravana stylist Jamie Muniz shares a formula to recreate Teigen's "fall-ayage" below using Pravana colors, lighteners and toners.
