Balayage: Why You Need to Try It

If you look through hair inspiration pictures on Pinterest or Instagram, you'll probably notice some common denominators. Natural, sunkissed balayage that is perfectly blended with perfectly tousled waves make up the vast majority of hair inspiration images. For the past few years, this trend has been one of the biggest trends in the hair world, and for good reason. 

  1. There is very minimal upkeep. Guests with balayage can often go three to six months before touching up. If you keep your natural color as your base, the grow out is very natural and can look good for up to six months. If you have a base color other than your natural color, you will only need to do retouches between balayage appointments.
  2. It looks more natural. Foils that are placed perfectly evenly leave a line as they grow out. Balayage is hand painted to give the appearance of highlights that were created by the sun. 
  3. Balayage adds dimension. It creates depth and dimension in the hair because of the varying tones throughout. Whether you wear it curled or straight, the color appears multi-dimensional and vibrant.
