Allow us to introduce to you a low maintenance coloring technique that has been a favorite of celebrities for the past few years. The effect is called Balayage- a French word that means to paint or to sweep. Instead of using traditional foils, stylists apply the color freehand, which allows for a customized, natural look.
Balayage requires minimal upkeep because unlike traditional highlighting, it is not applied at the roots. It is swept across the hair so outgrowth looks natural, which is healthy for both your hair and your bank account!
This technique is perfect for shoulder length or longer hair and looks great on dark or light hair. The look is especially popular this season and has been seen on runways and celebs including Jessica Beil, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Lauren Conrad.
If you are looking to light up your features without committing to the upkeep, this is the technique for you.
