I love Balayage! I really did not expect to like it so much. After all, it seemed to me that Balayage is not much different from the highlighting products touted for painting the top layer of hair (like L’Oreal Touch on Highlights). These have been sold in stores for years.
But the results of a professional Balayage are so natural and the highlights look so glossy and shimmery. I prefer the look to traditional highlights and think they look much more natural – like hair that has been sun-kissed.
Balayage generally takes less time to do, and it grows out more subtly and naturally – so you don’t have to rush back to the salon every few weeks. Not bad!
