Many clients are asking the question. What is balayage?

Balayage is a french word meaning “to sweep”.  It  is a technique similar to highlights, but create slightly different results. The classic highlight is very uniform and defined and stretch from the root (as close to the scalp as you can get it) and painted straight through to the ends. When using the balayage technique, it is applied freehand on sections of the hair in a sweeping technique. The product is applied at various levels of the hair to create a natural, sun kissed look. There are varying degrees of lightener applied to depending on the clients desire. This technique is used on all different color levels and lengths of hair.
