Balayage is a hair coloring technique that involves hand-painting highlights onto the hair to create a graduated, natural-looking effect. It is a more subtle and less noticeable form of hair coloring compared to traditional foil highlighting, and it can be used to add dimension and depth to the hair without the maintenance of traditional highlights.
One of the benefits of balayage is that it can be customised to suit the individual's hair type and desired look. For example, a balayage technique called "ombre" involves gradually transitioning from a darker color at the roots to a lighter color at the ends, creating a natural-looking gradient effect.
The process of balayage begins with a consultation with a Halo Hair stylist to determine the desired look and the best placement for the highlights. The stylist will then section off the hair and paint the highlights onto the hair using a brush or comb. The highlights are typically left in for a shorter amount of time than traditional highlights, and the stylist will use a low-volume developer to gently lift the color of the hair.
After the highlights have been applied and processed, we rinse and condition the hair before styling as desired.
Balayage typically requires less maintenance than traditional highlights, as the highlights are less noticeable and the root growth is less noticeable. However, it is still important to maintain the color by using our Keune shampoo and conditioner and getting touch-ups every few months.
Overall, balayage is a beautiful and natural-looking hair coloring technique that can add dimension and depth to the hair without the maintenance of traditional highlights.
