Emily Ratajkowski’s New Caramel Balayage Is All The Summer Hair Inspo You’ll Need

The prettiest sun-kissed strands you ever did see

Beauty Crew Digital Content Editor / September 03 2019

Spring has officially sprung, people! And you know what that means? Summer is just around the corner – YAY!

If winter has left your locks looking a lil more dull than dreamy, it might be time to pay your hairstylist a visit to brighten things up and get yourself feeling summertime fine.

If you’re toying with the idea of balayage, look no further for your warm-weather hair inspo, ‘cause professional babe Emily Ratajkowski has just done us all a solid and unveiled the prettiest caramel colour.


And after:

Ooh yeah, we’re digging this new look for EmRata! Her strands look like they’ve literally been kissed by the sun and we’re loving the seamless transition from her naturally-dark roots to her lighter mid-lengths. If you’re looking to lighten up your brunette hair, this warm colour and the placement of fine highlights is the perfect option, as it adds some oomph and freshness without creating too much of a contrast between light and dark. This is definitely one to screenshot to take to your hairdresser next colour appointment.

If you’re into Emily’s tousled waves, too, you might like to try a texturising product or a salt spray - check out some of our fave products and how to use them here

EmRata’s not the only one experimenting with some caramel highlights – check out Kim Kardashian’s take on the trend here.
