Balayage Highlights Illuminate Your Hair For Spring And Summer

For a while now balayage highlights have been a top color trend. It seems that they may be staying at the top of the charts indefinitely and for good reason. Balayage is arguably the most versatile and customizable highlight technique giving your strands just the right amount of sunkissed glow right where you want it most. The results are beautiful and natural looking and can be used to give you a completely new color or just illuminate your current color for spring and summer.

So, What Is Balayage?

If you’re new to the world of beautiful balayage hair color you may be wondering just what it is exactly. Balayage is a hair coloring technique in which the colorist's hand paints color onto your hair in a freestyle way. Your hair won’t be wrapped in foils or have a defined streaky highlight appearance. Instead, it will have a symmetrical, even color that is well blended and natural looking, very similar to the look your hair would get from spending a season in the sun but without UV exposure.

Unique Color Every Time

Due to the freestyle handpainted technique used not two balayage hair colors are exactly alike. Your colorist is able to create a unique color for you every single time with highlights placed and blended to perfectly compliment your complexion, features, and hairstyle. Someone may be able to get a similar color to yours, but they will never be able to exactly copy your look. It’s the epitome of custom hair color.

Low Maintenance Hair Color

With the busy schedules that we all keep these days no one wants to spend more time maintaining their hair color than they have to. Of course, any hair color will require some maintenance to keep it looking great, but one of the best things about balayage highlights is that they are super low maintenance. You see, when traditional highlights start to grow out there is a stark line between the highlighted strands and the new growth. This makes it very obvious that you’re due for a trip to the salon. On the other hand balayage highlights are blended to gradually darken toward the roots, so if you choose a color that is similar to your natural color your new growth will simply blend in and look like it was intended to be a part of your color all along. This gives you a lot of leeways when it comes to root touchups when life gets too busy to get to the salon for a while. The most important part of maintaining a beautiful balayage is to use only high-quality sulfate-free products that are specially formulated for color-treated hair such as the Kerastase Chroma Absolu Hair Care Collection.

Who Should Try Balayage Highlights?

The answer to that is everyone! Balayage is so versatile, customizable, and unique that it looks gorgeous on all hair colors, lengths, types, and textures. So it doesn’t matter if your hair is curly, straight, long, short, thick, or thin you should give balayage highlights a try. You will love how the one-of-a-kind color helps you create your own individual style. You simply can’t go wrong. Whether you just want to liven up your natural color a bit or if you want a completely new color, balayage is the way to go.
