What is Balayage?
Starting way back in the 70’s in France, Balayage is a hair coloring technique that gives your hair a pop of sun kissed sexiness. Gone are the hassle of foils, but instead arises a specialty, free-handing technique. It’s done in a v-shape highlighting technique, highlighting the edges of the v strands of hair. The stylist starts midshaft at your hair line and sweeps the color on. Once they reach the tips of your hair, they put the coloring on more heavily, giving it a naturally “dipped” look. It takes time, but the end result is worth every minute in the chair.
Who Can Do Balayage?
That’s the beauty of balayage; it doesn’t matter what length your hair is, you can still have these gorgeous, sun kissed highlights. Whether you have waist-length hair or a short and sassy pixie cut, you can have this highlighting style. A lot of people with blonde hair are apt for opting for balayage highlighting. But it’s not only limited to blondes; red-heads, brunettes, blondes, and even blonde-gray haired ladies can use this technique for a natural lightening appeal.
Why Should You Choose Balayage Highlighting?
For one obvious reason: it’s a gorgeous, natural look! You know that enviable, beachy hair appeal that just about every girl wants? That’s precisely the look you’ll be achieving with these highlights. Block highlights are very much so last year, so embrace this year’s style!
Not only is balayage a gorgeous, natural highlighting technique, but it’s also incredibly low maintenance; you don’t have to touch up your highlights every 5 weeks. In fact, you can go one, maybe two, haircuts before touching up your highlights. When balayage grows out, it looks a lot more natural, almost ombre-esque, avoiding the whole hair growth catastrophe we all experience at times. Not to mention, it’s a lot cheaper doing the balayage than foils in the long run, and your hair won’t be subjected to chemicals nearly as often. It’s a perfect win-win situation.
