Spotlight on balayage
 
An expert's guide on how to get the perfect sunkissed strands

That darker-at-the-roots, lighter-at-the-ends look is a summer hair dream. We hit up balayage pro Jaye Edwards of Edwards and Co (he works his magic on heaps of bloggers and celebs) about how to get the perfect sunkissed strands.

* “Never do balayage at home, ever!”

*  “Personally, I think balayage should never be too bottom-heavy. That’s when the ends are way blonder than the top half of the hair.”

HAIR HOW-TO: 'UNDONE' HAIR

* “Take a picture of someone with the colour you want with you to your hairdresser. Make sure you choose someone with similar eye and skin tone to you.”
