19 Mar What is Balayage?

If you have got the t-shirt and worn for trying out every possible hairstyle under the sun and looking to try something different, have you considered balayage in Sydney?
The word balayage is derived from the French word “Balai” which means to sweep or to paint. In the salon world, balayage is a freestyle, hand hair colouring technique that uses hands to create soft, smooth and natural looking highlights, with no visible or harsh lines. In other words, a hairstylist ‘paints’ the tresses to create soft shades and light through the hair, giving you more natural looking results.
Balayage appeals to many people as they can get different effects ranging from soft hues to being bold, giving you a choice from a variety of styles that allow you to be original. This technique is different from using the traditional foils in that it is about painting the hair in a more artistic and natural pattern.
- Origin Of Balayage.
While the balayage technique has exploded in popularity in recent times, it has its beautiful beginnings in the 1970s in France, at the uber-exclusive Carita Salon in Paris. The industry norm, at that time, was to dye hair by using frosting caps and foils. The balayage technique revolutionised the hair industry as it used cotton strips to separate dyed hair from un-dyed hair that creates an effortless and sun-kissed look.
