Balayage: What is it really?

Foils VS. Balayage

Highlights via foil, make the hair streaks very uniformed and more neat and clean. When foiling their hair, the entire hair strand is saturated in the color, resulting in more of a contrast streak to streak.

Balayage (Pronounced: BAH-LEE-AHGE) highlighting is the painting of the hair, using a freehand technique with light strokes leaving you with natural looking highlights that play off the hair’s natural movement leaving you with depth, dimension and beautiful sun-kissed highlights! And Balayage isn’t just for long-haired beauties, we can use this highlighting technique on the shortest pixie crops!

Why should I choose Balayage?
