What is the difference between highlights and balayage?
Highlights involve sectioning the hair and applying hair bleach or lightening products to selected strands to create a more defined and uniform appearance with noticeable contrast between the lightened strands and the natural color.
Balayage is a freehand technique where the colorist hand-paints the lighter shade onto the hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends to create a soft, sun-kissed effect which results in a natural, seamless blend of colors that mimics the way the sun naturally lightens hair over time.
This technique gives a softer, low-maintenance look with a beautiful, natural-looking gradient.
