What is balayage?
Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. This innovative method of coloring emerged in Paris and swept through the United States. Making this chic style the most sought after amongst the Stars! Balayage is a hair coloring technique designed to create natural-looking highlights. This technique leaves your hair with perfect sun-kissed highlights and softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. Since this technique is applied by hand, rather than traditional foiling, you can expect a much more natural look. Balayage works on both light and dark hair, and can be used on most lengths. This technique requires very little maintenance because it grows out much more naturally than foil highlights.
Balayage is the perfect combination of brown and blonde, making this modern technique the perfect solution for clients with dark hair who want go lighter!
How Balayage highlights are applied.
At Bonne Vie Salon, of Winter Park Florida, we only use Wella, Goldwell and Pravana products because our main priority is to create a vibrant color without damaging the hair. To begin the balayage process, the highlights are painted on by hand in a sweeping motion, starting from the base to the tip of the hair. At the base, the color is applied very lightly, while at the tip, the color is very heavy. Highlights can be as natural or bold as our clients want. This technique does not require the use of foils, rather a steady hand and an eye for perfection.
Whether you want subtle or more intense highlights, our balayage experts will be able to create a color to suit your skin tone.

Foil Highlights vs. Balayage Highlights
Foils are still very popular and a great alternative for clients who want to add dimension to their hair color. Foils leave precise uniformed lines whereas, balayage allows for a more natural, beachy feel. A foil commits a colorist to work within that strip, whereas balayage allows one to move freely, creating a truly customized look for each client. For a client who wants a more natural, beachy look we always recommend balayage.
BOLD. BEAUTIFUL. BALAYAGE!
How do I know if Balayage Highlights are right for me?
Balayage is ideal for clients who want a casual, sun-kissed look. With today’s busy lifestyles, not everyone has time to go to the salon as often as they want. We get it! But that does not mean you can’t look fabulous between visits. Balayage allows that freedom!
Balayage is versatile and ideal for most clients. If a client is new to highlights completely and wants to ease in to lighter dimensions, this technique would be ideal. It is also perfect for woman with thick, heavy hair, who want more contrast. Balayage also provides flawless grey coverage! We love to use this technique for coloring greys because it can cover the few grey strands, rather than having to color the entire head.
