Balayage For Hair
What is Balayage?
Balayage means to sweep or paint.
It’s a freehand technique where your hairdresser paints according to the outcome you’re seeking. It’s usually soft and subtle as it helps to avoid harsh lines of regrowth and also allows longer times for you between salon visits.
Traditionally it is done to create a natural effect on the hair, like the sun could do on natural hair with a lot of time spent outdoors. You can have an even more beautiful result than nature, when you have it done with techniques used by Trigg Hair Studio.
What is the difference between highlights (foils) and balayage?
Traditional foiling goes right to your scalp and can leave you a slight regrowth effect as the hair grows. Balayage is designed to avoid completely any regrowth line and blend with your natural hair.
The outcome you want may be a combination of balayage and foils, (commonly know as foliage, depending on the result you’re after. You can show us photos that you’ve brought with you or we can look together on the salon iPad, to work out exactly what result you’re after.
