The balayage may be one of the hottest and most popular hair coloring solutions of today. If you’re looking for a new hair color but can’t figure out the difference between balayage, ombre, sombre, hair painting, and the latest women’s hairstyles, this guide can help!
What Is Balayage?
Balayage hair is a coloring technique that is taking over. The balayage is created by color that is painted directly onto the hair instead of using the old methods of cap highlighting and foils. Pieces of your natural hair color will be left on the bottom of your hair to create dimension. This unique method allows for a natural, seamless transition between the hues that are chosen.
One of the many reasons this new style is so popular is that it allows for the roots to grow out without a noticeable line between the added hues. This is why balayage can be used with such a wide range of dramatic colors: black, blonde, brunette, caramel, purple, pink, silver, and any other color you can dream of.
Why Pick Balayage Hair?
Unlike old highlighting methods, balayage is hand painted directly onto your hair. Due to the direct application, you are able to amplify the hue of color to your specific choice. You can choose to have a soft peach color or go for a bold and neon pink hue.
As long as you do not have an extremely short or cropped haircut, you are able to have a balayage look. Also, as foil is not used, you can use the balayage technique on a wide range of hair textures, lengths, and colors.
My favorite part of balayage, the maintenance is extremely low. When your roots start to grow out, if the balayage is done correctly, you will be able to go months without another color treatment.
