Women talk about having a balayage to help enhance their ‘looks’. The hair coloring technique can give women that amazing sun-kissed hair look. It is a technique that is creating a buzz in the fashion and style- crazed world. So, what is balayage and why do people love it? Find out everything you can about this most talked about hair coloring technique.
Balayage refers to the technique of coloring the hair that uses the hairstylist’s own hands. It does not involve any of the conventional tools you’d expect in coloring your hair. The hairstylist applies very thin highlights from the mids of the hair and straight towards the root. This gives the hair a more natural ‘sun-kissed’ look.
It is this ‘more natural look’ that differentiates it from ombre. In ombre, there is a sudden change of color tone from the roots of the hair to the tips. All hair strands get the highlight. On the other hand, balayage offers a smoother transition because of its sweeping technique.
One can also have balayage at home. You will need a good balayage at-home kit to color your hair. The kit often includes a formula, a conditioning treatment, an applicator, and instructions on how to accomplish balayage at home.
