Derived from the French word “balayer,” balayage means to sweep, referring to the innovative application technique. Experienced colorists paint on the hair color to create graduated, natural-looking highlights.
Working with your colorist, you can design a look unique to you. Balayage can be customized in three ways:
- Placement of color on the hair
- Graduation, which can vary in intensity
- Color, although base on your natural or dyed color, color variations ranges from subtle to dramatic
Your texture, color, and length are taken into account to create the best overall results.
The final look is considerably less stripy than highlights but delivers hair with dimensions and changeability for a fun, beautiful look.
