Most people think that Balayage is a new hair coloring technique, but it has actually been around since the early 70’s.
Balayage is French word meaning to sweep. In the context of hair coloring & highlighting, Balayage is a freehand technique of duplicating the suns natural effect in lighting your hair giving you a younger and more energetic look.
Balayage provides for a much softer and an untreated look compared to foil highlights or an Ombré. It is obvious when someone with foil highlights needs “get their roots done”. With Balayage, it is almost the opposite. When Balayage technique is used to enhance or highlight your natural color, the growth of your hair adds to the effect.
Balayage Looks Much Softer & Untreated Compared To Foil Highlights
Balayage’s hand painted “sweeping” style allows it to be applied to best compliment the facial structure, hairstyle and color (as opposed to being applied right at the base or root of the hair because your roots need attention).
Because of the natural look that Balayage style creates, it is fast becoming the standard of highlighting especially when combined with other popular techniques.
