Balayage hair is a highlighting technique that doesn’t use foils. A hairstylist will hand-paint color directly on the hair, creating a more natural, blended,& sun-kissed color.
Balayage color can be soft and subtle, or it can be amped up through bold and bright coloring, all the while having a universally flattering effect.
In addition to its versatility, balayage is loved by clients & colorists alike since it not only looks more effortless, it actually takes way less maintenance than traditional highlights.
“Balayage tends to give you a better grow-out period,” says Nikki Lee, co-owner of L.A.’s Nine Zero One salon. “Whereas a traditional highlight client might need to touch up her regrowth every eight weeks, you can stretch it to 12 weeks or longer with balayage.”
