Balayage Hairpainting Highlights
What is Balayage?
Balayage is a French colouring technique that was developed in the 1970s. Itís a freehand technique where the colour is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques and is used to create sun-kissed, natural-looking highlights. Balayage can be used in even the shortest pixie crop however the best results is in hair below the shoulders.
Balayage is the in-salon color service choice among the most discerning clients that demand hair color to be designed exclusively for them. And it isnít just for Blondes! It is perfect for brunettes that want a subtle, sun-kissed look. With Balayage, you have more flexibility on where you want to place the highlights so the resulting pattern can look more natural.
We can achieve so many different effects from soft, natural highlights to something strong and punky. It is also considered to be low maintenance. People want to look fashionable and feel good about their appearance but in this day and age we don't all have the time to be in the salon every few weeks for a touch up.
The best hairstyles for Balayage
We always love to see balayage finished with loose curls or a beachy, tousled look where you can see the colour variations ribbon through the hair. Sharp, strong haircuts like a bob require a stronger colour or a block colour to show off the cut. Balayage is best left to more flowing hairstyle.
