* There are many ways to achieve Balayage ‘like’ results. But Balayage, which means ‘to stroke’ in its traditional form involves the freehand application of a lightning bleach or colour.
* Traditional Balayage can be applied right to the roots, but the more modern applications and techniques see the finished look with a larger root area. This root area may be natural hair colour or hair colour that has been applied at your visit to the salon.
* Often Baby Lights are used around the hairline to ensure the hair looks like it is completely coloured when wearing your hair back.
* If you don’t have face framing punchy pieces of Balayage around the face or Baby Lights around the hair line, hair can look like an Ombre colour rather than Balayage.
* The difference between ombre and balayage is ombre is basically a hair colour that has a large root area with the lighter coloured hair starting three Quarters of the way down the hair length. Which gradually gets lighter toward the ends.
* Foilage is another way of achieving a Balayage ‘like’ technique. This can be used to lift hair lighter as the foil conducts heat which allows the hair to lift lighter.
