What is Balayage?

What is Balayage? By Jane Moss

You may have heard the term many times before, but what exactly is the hair-coloring technique known as balayage?

Balayage is a process for highlighting the hair that uses hand-painting to create a thoroughly natural look. The technique uses no foil or caps. The word itself comes from the French, meaning to sweep or to paint. The technique is not new—it’s been around since the 1970s. Today’s desire for more natural, lightened locks has made it one of the most requested lightening techniques at salons around the country—including Brick & Mirror!

Your Brick & Mirror colorist is truly an artist who paints with color. The best colorists—and we only hire the best—have that rare combination of technical savvy and artistic sensibility that produces the best balayage results. You get that sun-kissed look that grows in much more naturally. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to go for more subtle lightening and works well for short hair or longer styles. Hair painted with a balayage technique gives you a low-maintenance look. But like any color-treated hair, it’s important to take care of your hair after lightening. Use a gentle shampoo, like The Perfect Blonde Shampoo from Pravana and condition regularly with The Perfect Blonde Conditioner—both available on our website and in our salon.
