This hair colouring method was developed during the 1970’s, but gained attraction to the hair industry recently. Balayage highlights are more relaxed and charming than traditional colouring technique

The Balayage Colour

The balayage hair colour does not limit into only one shade. You have the choice to amplify the colour from mild to bold, depending on your liking. Balayage method uses painting techniques to apply the streak of colours directly on the surface, and not infuses through the strands up to the hair tip. This gives a more natural and soft distribution of the hues to your hair. Thus, it is best to find a balayage expert that will help you find the right colour to match your skin tone.
