Let Hair and Skin Relish Celestial and Exquisite Care
The word “Balayage” comes from another French word meaning “to sweep” or literally means “sweeping.”
When applying the color for a balayage, the experts sweep the color through small triangle sections of the hair onto a board or foil, giving it the natural transition down into the lighter color.
In balayage, there are dark pieces left on the bottom to create dimension and a more natural look. This technique looks like natural sun-kissed highlights throughout the hair everyone wants, especially during the summer months.
When done correctly, a hair colorist takes a small section of hair and sweeps the color onto the top. Then a paddle is used to apply more color toward the bottom.
Balayage is a smart solution for gray hair because it can specifically target gray strands without touching the scalp. And because the person don’t need to do a single process to cover just a few gray hairs, it’s easier on the hair overall.
This color technique mimics the sun-kissed hair of the youth, by utilizing brushed on color application.
Balayage gives hair a softer look and less noticeable regrowth. The low maintenance upkeep works well for those who can’t make it into the salon as often or enjoy the lived-in look.
