“For brunettes, I take a very strategic approach—only focusing around the face frame, natural part and accenting the ends,” shares George. “This keeps the overall foundation of the color brunette but enhances it with soft accents. For Aly specifically, we accented with soft caramel balayage highlights to complement her natural base and skin tone.”
