Ever notice how children have the best naturally, sun-kissed highlights ever?
"Hairstylists, Balayage is as essential to your toolkit as a paintbrush and scissors."
Fitting as balayage comes from a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair color – similar to what nature gives us as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. Less noticeable regrowth lines makes our clients happy and House of Cabelo always aims to not only please, but go above and beyond.
And now we would like to share our wealth of knowledge with all local hairstylists with our upcoming event: Introduction To Balayage at House of Cabelo on July 9 at 10:00.
Whether you are a hairstylist just starting your career or a seasoned professional—you can't afford to miss out on this opportunity to sharpen your education toolkit!
So what is balayage? How does it differ from ombre? Or a highlight?
House of Cabelo has all the answers to your balayage questions!
With balayage, color is painted on to create a graduated, natural-looking effect, which maintains depth at the scalp—a range of tones to keep it from looking flat—achieved by a technique of not painting the entire surface of the hair at root . This color application technique results in more natural, sun-kissed color that melts into the hair and is great option for the above mentioned, lower maintenance look.
How is this different from ombre? Balayage is all about how nature intended our hair to look: it is a much more natural and blended look than an ombre because it blends the top color of the hair into the bottom of the hair.On the hand, Ombre presents a stark difference between the top and bottom colors of the hair—often in an almost straight line style.
How can balayage enhance our beloved highlights? When applying highlights, the color is placed at the scalp to brighten the root area—while balayage offers the lower maintenance look. By learning to combine the two, you can begin to create custom looks and achieve certain trends—expanding the services you offer your clientele and discovering just far your creativity will take you!
