A few months ago my hair got a fresh new haircolor. My dear sister-in-law stood all day long to give my hair a BALAYAGE. She is still a trainee and did it for the first time on long hair. I think she did a great job. It’s more like a soft Balayage, a dark blonde with blonde highlights. The hair looks natural and like it’s kissed by the sun. And when I add some curls or waves, it looks just perfect!
The special about Balayage is it to make the strands of hair without a foil technique. Take a strand of hair in the hand and put the color directly on the hair. In the process you move it like sweeping and measure the color individually. First apply it very thin, and much thicker (wider) at the end of the hair.
But don’t even try to make the Balayage on yourself. Since it’s not an ombre, it’s recommended to do it by a hairdresser with experience. Because it’s actually more difficult to make than it looks. The balayage technique looks best on medium to long hair, in addition of a layered contour.
