Balayage is a color technique where color is applied with a freehand style. The various styles are limitless. We can combine tones and colors and shadows to give you a completely original look. The process is great for layered hair, bobs, short to medium length hair and will maximize its effects for structuring and depth.
Its namesake is a french word that means to "sweep" or "paint", which is how color is applied. The specialized technique has been around for a while but has been improved with color technologies and popularized with celebrities' use of it in movies, red carpet events, and runway exposure.
The goal of Balayage is to give softer, more natural highlights. Think of the sun kissed locks of a child. Because they are a more natural highlight, you won't have to worry about the growth lines that you would when having highlights applied with a foil, therefore you won't have to have a root touch up as often. This means less time at the salon overall.
