Balayage is a complex coloring that uses two tones with a smooth transition between shades. As a result of this technique, the transition between natural hair color and dyed strands looks harmonious. This is a great way to get a spectacular light look and not spoil the blonde strands.
Balayage first appeared in the last century in France. The literal translation is “brush stroke”. It reflects the essence of new technology. The hair is lightened with 3 tones to make the coloring look more natural. Each strand is adjusted and pulled by hand. You should get the effect of sun-bleached strands.
The coloring does not start from the roots, the integrity of the hair follicles is not damaged. Thanks to color transitions, a seductive volume is created. This is an excellent option to refresh the hairstyle without drastic changes.
You can update the technique only after 3 months and during this time you remain spectacular and attractive. Hair will look healthy and well-groomed. Balayage visually makes facial features softer. Women look 3-5 years younger.
These techniques are often confused. They are indeed a little similar to each other, but there are fundamental differences from a technical point of view. For example, ombre is considered a phased coloring. It looks like a gradual dissolution of dark shades into a light shade. The color at the roots is very different from the color of the tips. In balayage, everything happens exactly the opposite. During dyeing, several threads are used. The difference between the lightest and darkest shade is minimal, so as the hair grows, the border between its color and dyed hair is not striking.
Natural blondes will suit a gray shade. The effect of gray hair is best used as a fight against gray hair, otherwise the lady may look older. Caramel is recommended for owners of dark blond. The golden shade can be applied to light brown hair.
Today it is one of the least traumatic and delicate methods to refresh the strands. Coloring is universal. Balayage can be done at any age at any time of the year for any length of hair, of course, except for ultra-short haircuts.
