Well where have you been hiding if you’ve not heard about balayage?
Deriving from French, meaning “to sweep”, this trend has earned its place in the hall of the well and truly famous. But what actually is balayage? Balayage is a skilled technique where the hair colour is painted (or swept) onto the hair. It creates flawless dimension whilst adding a natural-looking highlight effect on the hair, and ultimately aims to lighten the area it is placed on.
What people once thought of as a fad, has now become a staple alongside foil highlights. This technique breathes life into the classics, forming many, many different subcategories. There is foiliage, sombre, ombre, shadowed roots, high contrast, sun-kissed, to name a few.
