If you have been thinking of trying some balayage hair color and are ready to UPDATE your hair color, here is a good read to understand balayage before your service..
Balayage is a coloring technique used to create sun-kissed, natural-looking highlights. Used as an alternative to foil highlighting, hair color or lightener is swept or painted onto the individual hair strand to create depth, lightness and dimension. The method originated in France in the 1970s. The word “Balayage” actually comes from the French word “to sweep.”
Balayage hair painting is less expensive to maintain than traditional highlights. Many can go 3-4 months between appointments since your natural hair color will blend in with the natural-looking, painted highlights as it grows.
Balayage hair painting isn’t just for blondes or one type of haircut. It is also perfect for brunettes and redheads that want a subtle, sun-kissed look. Balayage can enhance almost any haircut, length or texture. You can customize your cut by adding dimension with Balayage to show off the shape.
Balayage is the in-salon color service choice among celebrities, models and fashionistas – those that demand hair color to be designed exclusively for them. Balayage allows your colorist to utilize their creativity and artistic talent to personalize the placement of each highlight for a customized result.
