Illuminate Your Tresses For Spring With Balayage Highlights
Balayage highlights have been a hot hair color trend for a while now. It looks as though this is one trend that is here to stay, and for good reason. Balayage is such a versatile highlighting technique. It perfectly compliments any hair color and can be used to completely change your color or simply to lighten and brighten your existing color. So if you’re ready to lighten things up for spring, balayage highlights are the perfect way to illuminate your tresses.
What Is Balayage?
If you’ve never tried balayage before you’re probably wondering what it is. Balayage is a hand-painted, freestyle highlighting technique. Unlike foils that group and wrap strands of hair in color for an even, symmetrical look, balayage gives a more blended, soft, and natural look similar to the effects of having a lot of fun in the sun.
Because the color is hand-painted, your colorist is better able to place and blend the color strategically to complement your hairstyle and flatter your features. The freestyle nature of balayage means that no two heads of hair will ever look alike. Balayage creates a custom color just for you that no one can truly copy, meaning your color will always be unique.
Hair color always requires some maintenance to continue to look great. There’s no getting around that, but balayage is the lowest maintenance option in the world of highlights. Traditional highlights become very obvious when they start to grow out, but the more natural, blended nature of balayage highlights means that they are less obvious and so require less frequent touch-ups. And if your base color is your natural color you may not even need touch-ups at all. The most important part of maintaining your balayage highlights is using high-quality, sulfate-free hair care products such as Kenra Color Charge Shampoo and Conditioner to keep your color true and vibrant.
Who Is Balayage Right For?
Because balayage is so unique and versatile it works on virtually any hair type, texture, color, or length. Whether your hair is long or short, straight or curly, or thick or thin you’ll always have a one-of-a-kind color that reflects your individual style and personality. Balayage is perfect for those that want a completely new color, as well as those that want a change without committing to a drastic change.
