Full balayage highlights over an ombré I did about a month ago. I love the piecey-ness at the top to transition into a solid blonde color at the tips of her hair. Styled her hair with messy waves to compliment my balayage.
If you're wearing something with a pattern, try echoing one of those clothes in another garment. Here, the green shirt echoes the green diamonds in the shorts. A neutral necklace keeps the outfit looking natural instead of too bright.
