You’ve probably heard of it, you’ve definitely seen it, but can you spot a good balayage when you see one? Your favorite colorists at your favorite Upton salon can! At The Hair Studio, we love color especially combined with the latest application techniques. And this is one we promise you won’t want to miss.
Pronounced BAH-LEE-AHGE, this French word translates to “sweeping.” Think of it this way – instead of the old foil technique to create lighter spots in your hair, your stylists are getting fancy by sweeping on the lighter to create the same result with a whole new vibe.
Balayage refers to the technique of free-hand painting highlights into the hair to create a soft and natural look. With a gradual lightening towards the end of the hair, this technique is one of the most popular among many high-profile names. For example, Halle Berry, Gisele Bundchen, Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Biel are just a few of the top celebs falling in love. Here’s why.
Whether you’re looking for a dramatic or a gentle transition, the versatility allotted with this technique allows for anything to be possible. When one considers Jennifer Aniston – her soft blond balayage creates a soft, sun-kissed, beach look that enhances her golden skin. However, with someone like Jennifer Beil, the warm golden browns help make her eyes pop. Whatever the desired result may be, your stylist can help!
Did we mention it’s not just for blondes?
While many think of balayage for lightening, blonde is often the color that comes to mind. However, this natural-looking technique is used on all shades of hair! Used alone or combined with other highlighting techniques, balayage allows for a completely customized look no matter what your natural hair color is.
Forget about roots.
Okay, you can’t forget about them, but you can worry less about your roots. Unlike traditional highlights, the hand-painted technique of balayage leaves a soft transition from the roots to the ends of your hair. Thus, as your hair grows out, it is much less noticeable. A big plus in our eyes, if we can say so!
