Balayage highlights are one of the most popular and innovative coloring techniques which, and is ideally for to those who do not want to colour or blonde their hair completely. This technique was invented in France and original meaning of the term comes from the French word "to sweep". By using this technique I can create a natural looking hair color that looks like it has been out in the sun.
The length and the degree of lightening of the hair vary at the customer's request.
Very often, multiple tones are used to create brighter (lighter) or smoother colour transitions.
When selecting a shade, there are two main options; the first is to leave painted locks more natural, in this case the difference between the base tone and the lightest does not exceed two tones, or, the other option is to create a more abrupt transition (bright contrast)-the difference in this case will be 6-8 tones.
The most popular shades for a client with dark hair are saturated auburn, which goes into a soft caramel or honey. Another popular choice is a cold purple (violet) shade that goes into a cold lavender, or a cherry shade, and for chestnuts - bitter Chocolate with bronze and brandy tones.
All silver, cold tones, as well as platinum colours, are suitable for blondes. Golden blonde or ash as well as the shades of milky chocolate will suit any dirty blonde.
If you decide to look trendy, you can play with all shades of grey and ash. Even lavender and the soft pink will look great on the hair painted in this technique. The main thing is that your colourist is professional and consistent with your image.
My suggestions about transforming your hair with Balayage colouring
- Works well for all types of hair, and for all haircuts regardless of the length of the hair.
- Does not require frequent attendance at the salon (good for hair health and, not least, despite the high cost of the first visit, in the future is very budget friendly because it does not require continuous visit to the salon to update the look).
- If your natural hair is prevalent with warm shades, and you want a steady, colder colour direction, it is recommended that you use tint hair products weekly
- It is recommended to use professional lines for hair care at home.
