Things you need to know about balayage
Balayage originates from a French word that means to sweep or paint. However, the word is now more known as a popular hair colouring technique.
Balayage is a process where a colourist hand-paints or sweeps colour through small sections of your hair, that results in ombre-style gradation to highlight your whole hairdo.
The difference from the usual colouring technique is that in balayage the colour is applied by hand, as opposed to the regular foiling or cap highlighting techniques.
This technique is suitable for those who want a new look without any extreme changes. It is also low maintenance, so no fuss!
The best hairstyle to pull off balayage is long, wavy hair, but even the pixie cut can rock this look too!
