What is Balayage Hair Color?

Balayage Hair Color

noun: a technique for highlighting the hair in which the dye is painted on in such a way as to create a graduated, natural-looking effect.

You may have heard the word, but What is Balayage Hair Color?

Balayage is a highlighting process where a professional colorist hand-paints color through small sections of hair in order to create a natural “sweeping” look. The word is derived from the French term balayer which literally means, “to sweep”.

At Southern Roots Salon, we have seen an increase in Balayage requests for fall because it’s a great way to subtly update your hair color.  “Balayage creates a more natural effect in the overall look of your hair color,” says Candace Lanier Dunbar, salon owner.

Balayage creates a more natural effect in the overall look of your hair color” says Candace Lanier Dunbar, Owner Southern Roots Salon, in Hendersonville, TN.

Because the balayage process uses freehand painting to apply the color, it’s more natural and is a great way to create dimension. So, whether blonde, brunette or redhead consider a balayage hair color at your next salon visit and discover for yourself what all the talk is about.

Salon Tip: If you’re planning to get your hair cut and colored during the same salon visit, make sure you get the cut first. This allows the colorist to take the shape and length of the cut into consideration.
