What is Balayage?

Even though the color treatment has been around for decades and continues to remain popular, there are still some that aren’t familiar with the technique.


A hair highlighting technique developed in Paris and first used in the 1970s, it wasn’t widely known until the 1980s. It didn’t become popular in the U.S. until the early 1990s when it caught the attention of celebrities. The demand for balayage quickly spread among fans who wanted to emulate their favorite stars.


In French, the term means “to sweep.” Hair color is “painted” by hand directly into the hair instead of using foil. The result is a more natural blending of color that’s subtle, yet stunning. It’s critical that the colorist is trained and experienced in the technique. The highlights will last from 8 to 12 weeks, depending on the selected highlighting color and hair texture.


Balayage is equally appropriate for locks of all hues, though the color will fade quicker in blonde hair. Individuals with curly or kinky hair can enjoy the look without reservation. Balayage as a highlighting technique is actually a preferred method by professional colorists due to the fragile nature of those two hair textures.

The Look

Since hair is normally darker at the roots than the ends, balayage is a natural fit for a technique that “paints” color in. The result for clients is a natural, sun-kissed appearance that adults crave and is commonly seen naturally on young children.


The technique is highly effective for those that want to hide dark roots as they grow back in. The highlights can be as bold or subtle as desired. It’s effective for all hair colors and gives greater warmth and depth to highlights than is normally achieved. Balayage provides a more personalized option that can be tailored to individual desires.

Balayage gives the appearance of younger, healthier locks and provides a way to grow out previous highlights without undesirable and obvious lines. It’s also easy to maintain without weekly touchups.
