REVERSE balayage is the edgy new beauty trend of 2018 - and it 's certainly eye-catching. If you 're mulling over your next hair look, there's now a genius makeover app that lets you try out a new hair colour BEFORE you dye it .

But, and there's a major but here, "The original balayage rose to fame because it allows clients to try color without having to commit to maintaining their roots on a consistent basis. This is the opposite of that. With the lighter color at the roots, the reverse balayage is beautiful, but high maintenance.

But now looking to the biggest hair looks of 2018, we think we've finally found a trend that we can get on-board with.

The reverse balayage is the new colour technique taking over our feed and we've got serious hair envy. The technique is the total opposite of a balayage (blending darker strands and lightening them a sun-kissed honey hue).

Instead, this new rule-breaking technique focuses on darkening lighter hues – think blonde roots leading to coffee-coloured tips.

This is how many calories are in your Christmas dinner — and how long it would take you to work it off

  This is how many calories are in your Christmas dinner — and how long it would take you to work it off 73% of Brits don't think about their calorie intake over the festive period. Christmas is the one time of year when many of us allow ourselves to splurge on tipples and treats without feeling guilty.

I had heard that you can avoid this through a process called “ balayage ,” but I had never tried it , mainly because my colorist does not offer it and I’m a very loyal customer. However, when I had the opportunity to try balayage through an awesome Lifebooker deal at Le Salon East

Balayage varies from a gentle ‘sun-kissed’ look or a more dramatic dip dye look. As it is a free-hand colour application, there are infinite results and it all depends on what you ask for and the skill of your stylist. Would you try it ?

The result? A surprisingly dramatic look. And it's not as high-maintenance as it looks either.

We chatted to Sam Burnett, session stylist and founder of London salon Hare & Bone for a better insight into the trend.

She explained:  "Most people can pull of this look as it suits both lighter and darker hues, although it looks best on caramel honey hues and mid to dark chocolate tones. Depending on the individuals face shape and skin tone, the root smudging technique can be used on a variation of hair lengths too. The direction of the tones can be changed for a more subtle or drastic effect."

She spoke about how the trend differs from a normal balayage or ombré effect - "Think of it as the opposite to a traditional balayage. Instead of a natural graduation of light to dark hues, it's the opposite. Unlike the ombré colour technique, multidimensional tones are used throughout the mid-lengths and ends rather than block colouring."
