Balayage has been around for a while, but this timeless technique is creeping its way back into being one of the most popular hair color requests in salons today.
What is balayage? Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair color with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.
How is balayage applied? Balayage is applied on the surface and not saturated through the section until the very tips, otherwise you would have a streak of colour that isn’t vey soft at all. It can also be called a freehand technique because no meche or foil are used to create the highlights.
Fiole NP 3.1 Japanese Hair Treatment AF is a new generation hair treatment that not only repairs your hair to its healthy state (no matter what condition your hair is in) but it lasts for 28 days with three texture options: AF (normal texture) MF (heavy and flattening texture) and DF (airy-light texture).
The best part of this is that it is a dedicated hair repair system for
- Dry and extremely dry hair
- Rebonded, bleached or permed hair
- Coloured or highlighted hair
- Hair damaged by frequent blow drying
The Japanese did it again!
Why balayage is the look for you?
If you’re looking for something edgier, balayage is also used to created a look called the splashlight, where color is only painted onto the middle of the strand. We’re just waiting for this one to take over the runway.
Want to go platinum, but afraid to take the plunge? Use balayage to paint it at varying heights on your strands. You get all the wow of such a bright blonde, but you keep the warmer, subtler tones near your face.
Not only does balayage created gorgeous, multi-layered color, it also lets you get away with stretching out salon visits just a little longer. Who’s to say if those are roots or just a part of the masterpiece?
After a few days of washing, the color has become brighter. Curious? More on Instagram where I connect with my readers (psst I’m very active on IG stories) and I would love to have you following me on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ too.
