What exactly is balayage? Balayage means “to sweep” or “to paint” in French, which is why balayage highlights are sometimes called painted highlights. They are applied by hand without the addition of foils, which results in a natural, sun-kissed look. Typically, color is more concentrated towards the ends of your strands with balayage, giving the hair a gradient of color from root to tip. Unlike traditional highlights—which are applied at the roots—balayage highlights can be grown out without as much upkeep. If you’re on the fence about the balayage look, you don’t need to commit to ongoing appointments to retouch your roots.
Although balayage hair color does tend to provide a sun-kissed effect, it can still yield dramatic results. Techniques like ombre color tend to create a starker contrast between your base color and the lightened ends, so your hair color stands out. Alternatively, you might want just a little more dimension and movement in your hair, which would make babylights a great choice. With this type of balayage, fine sections of hair are dyed to mimic the effect of natural lightening from a summer at the beach.
While blonde balayage is certainly popular, this coloring technique is not exclusive to blondes by any means. Balayage can allow you to incorporate shades of red, copper, light brown, and blonde to your strands—or you can even get wild with exotic hair colors like blue, green, and pink. If you do go blonde with balayage, our stylists will use Pulp Riot Blonding powders to evenly lighten your strands while protecting your hair. Your color treatment will also include a conditioning color gloss to balance your hair color and minimize brassiness.
Because balayage hair coloring is so customizable with the amount of color applied and the variety of colors you can choose from, it’s a good fit for just about any skin tone and hair type. However, you will need to embrace your natural hair color, as that will be the base color at the roots of your hair.
