According to hair stylists, the latest dye trend that makes any woman irresistible is Balayage. This hair color technique is a French method that was invented to create natural-looking highlights to your hair that look more soft and discreet than traditional coloring methods.
As opposed to traditional 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. It can work on a variety of hair lengths, textures and colors and the maintenance level lasts up to four months between color treatments.
And what is absolutely amazing is that you can do it yourself. You can have the balayage experience with the DIY Balayage kits that you can get from the local beauty stores. Don’t be afraid to use them, you just have to follow the instructions on the package and you will obtain a gorgeous hair look.
- The balayage technique is very versatile: it can be done on any hair type and in plenty of ways, from the regular two-tone balayage to the subtle style to bold and even reverse balayage. You just have to choose one way to get it done that’s most comfortable and practical for you.
- You can do it yourself! It might be intimidating at first but you won’t go wrong if you follow the instructions on the package.
- You can save time and money! Balayage technique doesn’t require coloring your roots as often as you would have to if you had regular highlights and lowlights done because your grown out root color will simply just blend right in. Because of that, you can save the required time to go to the salon and money (from repurchasing products and having your hair touched up by a stylist).
- It offers you a natural look! Having balayage done on your hair makes all the colors look very natural.
