Balayage highlights originated in Parisian salons. This technique involves hair stylists literally painting pieces of hair with a color brush, and results in a natural look. The stylists chooses which strands of hair to highlight, using a smaller color brush for precision. Low-lighting can also be performed this way.
Balayage is French for “to sweep” – and the trend is sweeping across salons! It’s a hair highlighting technique you’ve probably seen on your favorite celebrities & models and didn’t even know it!
“Hair Painting” techniques- like Balayage– require the least amount of maintenance (meaning not-so-obvious- root grow out and longer time between appointments)!
Many celebrities are opting for balayage highlights. A variety of looks can be created; for example styles consisting of curly layered hair where the tips of the layered curls are tinted in dramatic color- just by using a color brush to paint the ends of the hair with out needing any additional tools. Traditional balayage doesn’t use foils! The new technique of balayage is a healthier way to highlight your hair, and is a must-do style for the modern woman!
