Balayage is all the rage right now but the truth is, it’s not new…it’s back!   After a few women saw models and A-listers wearing it on catwalks and red carpets, it became much desired rather than foil highlights.

Balayage is a French word meaning “to sweep” or “to paint”. It allows for natural looking hair color,  similar to what the sun does to our hair as children. The look is a softer, natural look with less noticeable regrowth lines.

Balayage does not require a lot of maintenance and you can wear it longer between appointments.  All you really need to do is protect with a color protecting shampoo and conditioner as you would any other color.   Also make sure to use heat protection when styling.

Although the colors for a classic Balayage is supposed to be subtle, you can use the same technique with contrasting colors for some wild effects!
