Balayage, the most popular trend in hair salons today! Balayage is for every color and is very low maintenance. It creates depth and dimension leaving the hair looking naturally sun kissed.
Balayage is a French coloring technique that was created in the 1970’s. It is a free hand painting technique that gives the hair a seamless, natural sun kissed effect. A good Balayage will have no harsh lines or blotchiness, it is meant to look soft and subtle. Every head is different so some stylists might use foil to create their look, others might use cotton, and some will use nothing but their brush and the color. This heavily depends on the type of hair they’re working with, so let them decide what’s best for you as they are the professionals.
The beauty of Balayage is that anyone with long enough hair can do this; red heads can go from red to strawberry blonde, brunettes to light brown, black hair to dark brown, medium blonde to bright blonde. It truly is fantastic, and a beautiful alternative to highlighting.
