What is balayage?! How do you say it?! What is the difference between balayage and highlights? These are all questions Salon Renew has been asked and we want to get this info out ASAP!! First off, it's pronounced bah-lee-ahzge.
Balayage is a technique where highlights are hand painted giving a natural sun kissed look. This technique mimics the way that nature effects your hair. Think of the young girl with the perfectly sun lightened hair. That is the look that is achieved through balayage. These highlights are mostly done without foils. This technique is great for someone that wants subtle dimension without the upkeep. Sounds perfect right?! Yes, but there are some things we must tell you…
Balayge is not what you want to ask for if you love the highlights starting at your scalp. In this case you will want to ask for normal foiled highlights. Also because this is a gentler option balayage can tend to have warmer tones.
Above all trust your stylist. The balayage look can be achieved through different applications. Your stylist will know best if balayaging your hair is going to achieve the result that you are looking for.
Here are some Salon Renew examples!!
