Kloe Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker, Amber Heard, Jessica Biel, Lauren Conrad and offcourse Vanessa Hudgens. What do all these hotties have in common? They all have sexy hair! It is called a Balayage effect. (pronounced bah-lee-AHZGE) Hot right? Well, now I am also a hottie because I went and got myself a shiny and new balayage look.
I had heard of ombre and dip dye but never of balayage until one month ago when my colleague walked in the office fresh from the hairdresser with her sexy balayage hair and I immediatly wanted one too.The ombre and dip dye effect was a little to extreme for me but this was perfect! A Balayage is the thing too ask for next time you are at your hairdresser. It is a way more natural look and you can go as bold as you like. I wanted a little bit of a fierce look so my balayage is pretty out there but I got what I asked for.
What is a balayage?
Balayage is a French hair coloring technique. It’s a freehand technique where the hair color is applied by hand sweeping for a more natural effect, rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques. Balayage can be used in even the shortest pixie crop however the best results is in hair below the shoulders. It creates depth and dimension, and leaves you with a sun-kissed finish look.
The great thing about the balayage technique is that you can go as soft or funky as you like. The natural highlights or lowlights which we all wish for, can be customised to however you’d like them to look, and can be as dramatic or as modest as you’d like them to be. Another great thing is how low maintenance the balayage effect. Because of the natural look, you don’t need to have your roots touched up as often. Which gives your hair less damage and keeps the money in your wallet.
