I always get the question, What is balayage?
Balayage is the French word for feathering.
This technique is feathering color into hair. It can be decorative, made to look natural, or all outrageous. This process can be a splashing of color into hair, highlighting in certain areas (sometimes around the face), or just a few peekaboo lights so they appear once in a while when you move your head a certain way. I’ll talk about Peekaboo highlights in a future post.
These highlights, low lights or lights in general can be done several ways.
You can paint them on, board them on, or pick them up and put them in foil to strategically place them where you want to see them exact.
This is one of my favorite ways to color hair. The effects are beautiful.
Next time you feel like experimenting with you hair color, ask about the balayage technique.
