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 their hair completely. This technique was invented in France and its original meaning 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 varies 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 dramatic transition (bright contrast)-the difference in this case will be 6-8 levels.
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 cool purple (violet) shade that goes into a cool 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 you want a more dramatic look, you can play with grey or ash tones. Even lavender and soft pink will look great on this hair painting technique. The main thing is that your colourist is professional and consistent with your desired look.
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 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 cool or ash tone, it is recommended that you use toning hair products weekly such as purple conditioner
- It is recommended to use professional lines for hair care at home
