You have probably heard about balayage, the highlighting technique that keeps gaining in popularity. Although many people call it a style, it’s actually a technique for highlighting hair that leaves a different effect than other techniques.
Balayage is different than traditional techniques because the color is hand-painted freestyle into the hair. With foil highlighting, groups of strands are wrapped while the others are colored, so the result is symmetrical and even. Balayage looks more natural, like that sun-kissed look you get toward the end of summer.
Although the color is hand-applied, it’s not random. Your stylist applies color strategically to best showcase the highlights in your individual hair. Because of this, no two balayage-style highlights look exactly alike. Your color is a unique expression all your own.
Compared to traditional highlights, balayage is low-maintenance, requiring only a few touchups every three or four months. Traditional highlights need more touch-ups because they look more obvious as they grow out.
Balayage is a great way to make a change without committing to a full new color. You can brighten up the color you have to create a whole new look for spring.
Think of balayage as an art form for your hair. Because each head of hair is unique, the time required for professional balayage highlights varies. When it’s complete, your hair will look like no one else’s.
Because the finished look is so unique, balayage works on just about every hair type and color. Your hair can be short or long, thick or thin, curly or straight, and you’ll still achieve a unique, individual look.
