Voted Best Highlights Salon NYC and Best Highlights Salons NYC. From Balayage Highlights to Ombre Highlights & Foils Highlights. Our highlighting techniques are unique!
Many women we see over-highlight their hair. Whether it’s Balayage highlights, Ombre color or Foils highlights, it should complement your natural color. For foils highlights we often use lowlights to tone them down and temper the frosted look. Lowlights help create a vibrant hair color that brings out your skin tone and eye color. Your hair color should never detract from your complexion, and too many highlights can make your skin look faded.
At Fine Artistik Salon, we recommend adding lowlights every third time you get your hair highlighted. They will help blend your highlights with your natural color, and you won’t have to run to the salon with dark roots every six weeks.
(American “Baliage”) technique hair highlighting is done freehand, so is also called hair painting or free-form technique. Balayage coloring is very versatile and can be used to achieve many looks, including Ombre hair color. Balayage highlights can be applied on wet or dry hair.

HIGHLIGHTS: BALAYAGE VS. FOILYAGE VS. FOILS
Balayage hair painting can achieve a far more dimensional, natural and softer look. Balayage highlights are easier to maintain, as the re-growth is not as noticeable. Balayage highlighting is gentler on the hair than other traditional highlighting techniques, as it doesn’t use heat.
TIPS TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS:
Choose a highlight color that complements the rest of your hair, as well as your skin. Pink-toned skin suits blonde highlights. Yellow undertones should not have a deep gold tone. Protect your Balayage highlights with a color-enhancing shampoo and conditioner to delay color from fading and to prevent hair from drying out. Get a conditioning treatment afterwards to make the hair softer and smoother. Your balayage highlights will need to be touched up from about 6 -8 weeks, as the hair grows.
FOILYAGE HIGHLIGHTS / FOLIAGE HIGHLIGHTS
Foilyage is a hair technique similar to the Balayage, Hairstylists apply hair coloring by a sweeping technique, painting on your hair. Then like traditional hair highlights, sections of hair are wrapped in foil. Once all hair sections are wrapped, causing the overall hair color to penetrate deeper into the hair to lighten hair further, amplifying the lifting-effect of the highlights. Whenever you are out on the beach, shopping or just out and about and you see a celebrity or just someone in passing with a bold blonde balayage its likely a Foilyage. Of course, this technique isn’t just for blondes or bold look. It also works for Brunettes & Redheads and doesn’t have to be bold if you chose to, it can be subtle, natural and flawless.
The styling effect allows for less needed maintenance since a Foilyage like a Balayage does not follow highlighted hair lines like regular highlights.
If you are looking for a Balayage with a lighter blonde look or have brunette hair, then you will need a Foilyage allowing the extra help of foil and heat. A balayage is air dried allowing the hair to process evenly. After the Stylist paints the hair and wraps it in foil, this allows the hair dye to fully penetrate hair all around, then finished off with heat. This technique it perfect if you want that famous South Florida beach blonde hair look or if your hair is very dark and you want a dramatic color change.
