Balayage is a colouring technique used to create natural looking highlights – perfect for blondes, brunettes and redheads that want a subtle, sun-kissed look. Used as an alternative to foil highlighting, it is the action in which hair colour is swept or painted on to the hair to create depth and dimension. Balayage highlights are the in-salon colour service choice among celebrities, models and fashionistas – those that demand hair colour to be designed exclusively for them.
Balayage upkeep is less expensive than traditional highlights. Many clients go up to six months between appointments as the natural hair colour will blend in with the natural-looking, painted highlights as it grows.
Balayage hair colour technique allows your colourist to utilize their creativity and artistic talent to personalize the placement of each highlight for a customized result. If your Balayage isn’t done correctly you can end up with excessive overlapping that can cause damage which will lead to extremely dry hair and even hair breakage. That’s why you should only see a professional that specializes in Balayage and freehand hair painting techniques.
