Balayage highlights are not a color trend; they are a color technique. Everyone has their own preference as to how they like their hair color. Some prefer dramatic, others may prefer a very natural look. Techniques like Balayage and color blocking allow our color specialists to give each individual client they look they desire.
Balayage highlights are for the natural girl at heart. Balayage gives your hair the illusion of a natural, sun kissed look. It is a French colouring technique that was developed in the 1970s. Balayage uses a freehand technique to ‘paint’ the color on the hair by hand. rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques.
While Balayage is traditionally preferred by many who want a soft and natural look, you can get more edgy with the technique by using bright and funky colors. Balayage highlights give the semblance of lasting longer than traditional foil highlights because their is no ‘hard edge’ of where the highlight begins, so you won’t really have that obvious regrowth line.
