Studio 52 Designers LOVE Balayage! Balayage is a french technique that is the latest color trend in the Indianapolis area, and gaining international popularity. Balayage is a technique for hilighting the hair in which the color is painted on to create a graduated, natural effect. Balayage translates to “sweeping”. Many of our guests at Studio 52 ask “what is the difference between highlights and balayage?” Here are the facts: Highlights use foils and are typically lightened from root to ends. Balayage allows the hair to be muted, softer and blended as it progressively gets lighter as you travel to the ends of the hair. Highlights also require more maintainance. Highlights should be seen at the salon every 6 to 8 weeks depending on how dark your natural hair is. Balayage can last up to 8 to 12 weekds or longer! It is applied in a thin application which helps the roots blend in, disguising them as they grow out. One of the best things about balayage is it can ast like contouring cosmetics, enhancing your facial structure and highlighting your best features.
Whether you have straight, curly, or wavy hair, it does not matter. The results of Balayage will be just as breathtaking.
