Balayage Hair Technique for Healthy Hair
We at Glamrs FIRMLY believe in this ^ and it's a given that we all want to experiment with our hair, be it with styles, cuts or even colour! While some of us love dramatic hair colour changes and go in for bright pinks, purples and paint galaxies into our hair, some of us like simple, subtle changes that are noticeable and striking, yet subtle and gorgeous.
So, if you're someone who would take on the " Hair Dares " happily, this post is for you!
Balayage is a french word which literally means "Sweep" or "paint" so when you get this done, the results are going to look extremely natural. It's going to look as if you have that kind of hair naturally which is amazing and the hair looks stunning under the sun!
We thought of digging in more into the history of balayage, and turns out it has been around from quite a while (The 70's) known as ‘Balayage à Coton,’ named for the strips of cotton that are used while executing the technique!
No foils are used and the colour that is applied will go with your skin tone just perfectly! There are no obvious regrowth lines whatsoever as when it grows out, it grows out naturally!
What's the difference between foils and balayage, you ask? Foils give you neat rows of saturated colour that ends up looking dense and well, sometimes forced. Whereas Balayage is done using softer strokes that blends in with the natural colour of your hair, more like a the strand of hair has dual tones of colour. Now THAT is something we'd all love! More so, even the brush used for balayage is different than a regular hair colouring brush.
When you step out in the sun, just take a moment to check your reflection on a car or store's window and appreciate how GORGEOUS are the streaks of this colour going to look.
So the next time you're planning to change something about your hair, you know what to tell your stylist! :D
