Make an appointment with your stylist now! Balayage has been around for a while, but this timeless technique is creeping its way back into being one of the most popular hair color requests in salons today and it is NOT going away! Fine Artistik Salon, L’Oreal Professionnel hair colorists are here to share some professional insight on the booming hair trend, balayage. We are Voted Best Balayage Highlights NYC & Best Hair Color Salon NYC!
So, what is balayage? Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair color – similar to what nature gives us as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.
How is balayage applied, what’s the process? Balayage is applied on the surface and not saturated through the section until the very tips, otherwise you would have a streak of color that isn’t vey soft at all. It can also be called a freehand technique because no foils are used to create the highlights. If your current hair color is a Brunette or has any red undertone pigments, we will most likely have to either double process your hair or balayage your hair 2-4 times to achieve a lighter color without red tones or an ash tone (this process isn’t done in 2-4 hours, some hair colors require color correction and 2-4 visits to the salon). Our L’Oreal Professionnel team of hair color educators are known for being the best. We are the best balayage highlights NYC salon!
What sets it apart from traditional hair coloring? It’s totally bespoke to you! A good balayage expert will be able to place the color to suit your skin tone, so it’ll look amazing and really light up your features.
What’s making it so popular recently? It’s a skilled technique that hasn’t been widely taught in the UK until recently. Now it’s becoming better known because all the models and A-listers are wearing it. Clients are seeing it on the catwalks and red carpets and want to get that finish rather than the uniform highlights that foils give.
Does it require a lot of maintenance? Very little. It grows out beautifully and more naturally so you don’t get an obvious regrowth line and and can wear it for longer between appointments. All you really need to do is protect it as you would any other color: use a color protecting shampoo and conditioner, regular treatments and heat protection when styling.
Is it suitable for all hair types/lengths? It works on both light and dark hair, so anyone really. Both Rihanna and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are great examples of balayage poster girls.
“Bronde” is currently a trending color & technique. Popular amongst celebs such as Jessica Alba and Olivia Palermo. It’s the perfect combination of brown and blonde tones. “Bronde” is perfect for darker haired clients who want to try out a lighter color, it can be warm neutral or cool. The choice is really between you and your colorist. Balayage pretty much works for all lengths except very short cropped hair.
What makes it timeless? It’s low maintenance, looks more bespoke, more natural, and is a modern technique that’s much more flattering. Healthy hair is attractive hair and that’ll never go out of fashion. As opposed to standard highlighting methods that use foil or a cap, balayage is strictly freehand where the color is painted on. You can amplify the hue to vary from a soft wash to bright and bold depending on your personal preference. Outside of very short cropped hair, it can work on a variety of hair lengths, textures and colors, making it truly universal and flattering for all women. Most are drawn towards it because the maintenance level is relatively low; many are able to go four months between hair coloring appointments.
