Summer is here and you’re ready to go blonde, but you don’t want to go to the salon every 4-6 weeks for a retouch; then a balyage is for you! Balayage is a hand-paint technique that uses teasing and/or free hand strokes. The results are similar to a highlight, the only difference is it varies in inches away from your roots giving you a more natural blended look when your new roots come in. Balayages are an easier maintenance as you can push your visit to the salon from 4-6 weeks (for a highlight) back to 12-14 weeks. Instead of trying the traditional highlight method next time ask your stylist about the balayage method.
