When we first heard about Balayage, it was the arrival of a change in the world of hairdressing. We no longer had to sit down, with our heads covered with pictures, for what seemed like three days only to finish with the hair like a broom.

What is Balayage?
Balayage is a French word meaning 'to sweep' or 'to paint'. It allows a color of hair of natural aspect and kissed by the sun, similar to what nature gives us when we are children.
How can you tell if your Balayage has been successful?
Balayage wicks should be very close and soft at the root leading to a thicker projection at the ends of the hair. Balayage should be applied on the surface of the section and not saturate through the section to the same points; otherwise, it would have a grain of color that is not soft at all.
What is the difference between Balayage and OmbrÃ ©?
Balayage is a French word that means to sweep or paint; It is a highlighting technique. Ombré means shade, and it is a perfect graduation from darkest to lightest.

Sombré is a much softer version of ombré and is still popular, especially with the charcoal gray trend.
What is the difference between Balayage and Highlights?
Balayage has softer lines and less noticeable than traditional reflections: the main idea is to create soft and natural looks. There is no striped look you can get with aluminum highlights, Balayage emulates the parts of your hair that would lighten naturally under the sun. In addition, Balayage is a freehand technique, since no aluminum foil or meche is used to create the reflections.
Why is Balayage better?

Look at most celebrities and you'll rarely see a classic aluminum foil highlight, you'll see this style and combined techniques like ombre and Balayage, or Babylights and balayage...
