Balayage is a French term meaning “to sweep.” This technique was created in the 70’s by free handing color placement onto each strand of hair to emphasize movement while adding depth and creating life to any shade of hair color you choose. The colorist picks and chooses each highlighted piece and has control over where exactly each piece falls depending on the haircut or desired effect. With this type of control, you can choose highlights that are more bold and chunky or soft, sexy, and lived in. The colorist may choose to use lightener (bleach) for lighter pieces or a high lift color for something more subtle, or even paint some low lights with this technique to creates tons of depth and dimension. It is possible to ask a skilled stylist to give you a Balayage highlights with an Ombre feel to the overall look! The overall result for any Balayage color is a sexy look that grows out naturally without appearing to need a touch-up like traditional methods of highlighting.
