Balayage is a French word which means to paint or to sweep. It is a technique that is often used to produce the Ombre effect (another French word which means shading.)

While both techniques have been around for a while, they’ve become more popular because of the newer products available to hair colorists which help them achieve the results they are after — no harsh lines of demarcation between the top of the head and the bottom. Rather a gradual, blended change of shades are painted on the hair strands — resulting in a look that can be as naturally sun-kissed as a child’s head after a summer at the shore — or as trendy and adventurous as hair that goes from green to blue on the ends. It looks great on curly, straight, or beach waves — you just can’t go wrong.

The best part? No two people look the same! Your color and technique is adjusted to your style, your curls, your coloring. And you can wait longer between salon visits as regrowth isn’t as obvious. It’s a modern, stylish, trendy way to be yourself, only better!
