Both are trendy and look great it just depends on your personal taste and style. Finally, it’s a trend that doesn’t require a busy woman of today’s world to run into the salon every 6 weeks for a touch up!
BALAYAGE HAIR PAINTING / BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS
Balayage highlights is a French term meaning “to sweep”. This technique was created in the 70’s by free handing color placement onto each strand of hair to emphasis movement while adding depth and creating life to any shade of hair color you choose. Basically, the colorist picks and chooses each highlighted piece and has control over where exactly each piece falls depending on the haircut or desired effect. With this type of control you can choose highlights that are more bold and chunky or soft and sexy. The colorist may choose to use lightener (bleach) for lighter pieces or a high lift color for something subtler. It is possible to ask a skilled stylist to give you a Balayage Highlights with an Ombre Highlights feel to the over all look! The overall result for any Balayage hair painting is a sexy look that grows out naturally without appearing to need a touch up!
