If you are a Columbia, Maryland resident, are ready for a change and want a natural sun kissed look, then the new balayage trend might be what you are looking for.

What Is Balayage

Balayage is a new hot trend in the hair industry that everyone is talking about. Here is everything you need to know about the easy to maintain and love hair color technique.

Balayage comes from the French word Balayer, which means to sweep or paint. Balayage is a highlight technique. Balayage is the way you apply the color not the color itself. The color is painted onto the hair to create a natural looking highlight.

That means the final look is less stripy than traditional foils. The hand-painted technique still allows your hair to have the same gorgeous dimensions and fun colors as any other color service.

How Is Balayage Achieved?

The hand-painted highlight allows for a pop of brightness and contrast throughout the hair. Since the experienced stylists at Patrick’s Hair Design can choose exactly where to place the color, each balayage is specific and unique to each client.

A balayage service will never be the same on any client. A balayage service is determined by the client’s skin color, hair color, texture, length, face shape, as well as the clients day-to-day lifestyle.

Balayage requires less maintenance than any other hair color service. The technique is designed to give you a grown out roots look, in a flattering way.

How Do I Maintain My Balayage Look?

Even though balayage offers a softer, more blended appearance and less maintenance–which could mean less trips to your salon–you still should pop in every six-to-eight weeks to keep your color looking fresh.

You should ask for a hydrating mask service for a healthy shine as well. A toner can also help to refresh the color and to take away brassiness. Also, you should be taking home a good color shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair’s integrity until your next service.

These services and products will maintain your gorgeous balayage look for a good while.
