    For a triangular face shape, this balayage technique is ideal because it compliments her natural features and softens the width at the temples. 

     

    Contouring Technique: Dark colors are great to shorten and narrow the face shape, while light colors help to add length and width. Contouring can change the appearance of any face shape by defining facial features and enhancing both natural skin tone and eye color.
