Balayage Hair Color Technique

The Balayage Hair Coloring Technique Creates Depth and Dimension

According to Vogue, “Balayage creates depth and dimension, and leaves you with a sun-kissed finish. Balayage is a French coloring technique that was developed in the 1970s.” It made it through the decades because it is a classic look. “It’s a freehand technique where the color is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques. Balayage can be used in even the shortest pixie crop however the best results is in hair below the shoulders.”

“Balayage is best done on natural hair, but never fear, most of the work I do to create a Balayage look is initially done with foils until the hair is ready to have only Balayage. There are many different techniques that people use to create this look. If you’re seeing a color specialist they should always be able to come up with a technique to achieve the look you desire that best suits your hair type and color history”.
