Stunning Ideas for Balayage Hair
Balayage hair is all the rage right now. It is a hair technique that started in France and aimed to create soft, sultry highlights that look more modern than the traditional highlights.
Balayage hair color is different from traditional hair coloring in that it is painted freehand as opposed to using foil or a hair cap.
It works great on those with a brown hair color to give it some gorgeous caramel tones. You can intensify the hue by going from a soft hue to a bolder wash. It works great on all hair lengths, especially on extremely short hair styles. A quality balayage hair treatment can last as long as four months.
