Tweed Hair Is the Beautiful Balayage Trick That’s Taking Over Instagram

The ideal fall hair color is rich, dimensional and low-maintenance. And while most of us opt to go darker for fall, this season we’ve developed a little blond ambition. Our inspo? Tweed.

Chicago colorist Rex Jimieson popularized the tweed hair concept, a new way of creating a distinctive balayage that promises to lift any basic blond shade. Tweed hair plays up the contrast between dark and light shades without any standout patches.

According to Jimieson’s Instagram, tweed hair should fill up your mane by creating the illusion of volume with your base color and highlights staying within three levels of each other. His last tip? Incorporate your natural undertones so it’s easier to keep up.
