My love for balayage hair is all too real, the hand-painted highlights will make you re-think everything you thought you knew about hair colour. But there's one guy (or should I say salon) on Instagram that's forever giving me hair envy... Johnny Ramirez of the Ramirez Tran Salon in LA, consistently posts amazing I-can't-believe-that's-the-same-person balayage transformations. Seriously, it's enough to make you want to drop $$$ on a round trip to the States.

Don't believe me? Here's 11 times Mr Ramirez (aka, the balayage whisperer) made magic happen...
