What is a balayage blonde?

Pronounced BAH-LEE-AHGE, balayage is actually a French word meaning 'sweeping,' as in to sweep on a hair lightener to create highlights. Balayage is the technique of free-hand painting highlights onto the hair, creating a soft and natural gradation of lightness towards the ends. The result is the look of summers spent at the beach, or the fresh, unintentionally perfect highlights on a child. This natural-looking highlighting technique is not just for blondes but is actually used on all shades of hair to add soft, sunkissed dimension.

Of course, there are variations in application preferences: some colorists don’t separate the hair, while others separate the hair with cotton pieces, and others prefer using foil as a divider. There are different application nuances that produce slightly varied results, but the main reason balayage has become so popular is that it allows colorists to hand-select the pieces of hair they want to highlight. Due to the customized, natural-looking placement, balayage also allows for a softer grow-out.

When it comes to hair color highlighting and balayage techniques and trends, sometimes the differences between them are so nuanced that it’s hard to keep them straight. Never fear. We’re here...with a primer that breaks down the hottest highlighting trends once and for all. Balayage, sombré, lowlights, and on to learn what sets all these looks apart.

Can you get really blonde with balayage?

Blonde balayage is a particular favorite for the warmer seasons of the year (especially for people who live on the sun-washed West Coast). It offers a natural-looking way to go blonde—one that's softer and subtler than other trendy blonde shades like golden or platinum blonde.

How long does blonde balayage last?

3-4 months
One of the greatest advantages of Balayage is how long it lasts. Traditional foil highlights require touch-ups every few weeks, whereas Balayage will last 3-4 months on average.


What's the difference between highlights and balayage?

Difference between highlights/balayage? The difference between highlights and balayage is that highlights almost always use foils whereas balayage is more of a visual hand-painted technique. Balayage will always give a more subtle result than traditional highlights.


Does balayage damage your hair?

Because Balayage highlights don't involve completely saturating your hair in bleach or color dye, you'll enjoy healthier hair because of less process on the hair. As a result, you get to enjoy softer, silkier hair with less damage and dryness.

Does balayage go to the roots?

Balayage is a form of highlighting. As previously mentioned, the balayage technique focuses the color a couple of inches from the roots. But traditional highlights are usually placed directly at the roots, according to Felicia Dosso of Nunzio Saviano.

Is balayage out of style in 2022?

As we embark on 2022, you'll see a move away from balayage and over-bleached two-toned looks that can be damaging to hair. Instead, the trend will focus on keeping hair healthier with blended and customized natural hair colors that complement each person's individual skin undertones

Does balayage cover GREY hair?

Does balayage work on grey hair? The style works for all colors but, 'the only thing is it won't cover grey hair,' advises Josh Wood. 'It will only help blend in the grey to disguise it so if you want full coverage for greys it might not be the right choice for you.

How do you know if balayage will suit you?

Balayage is a softer, more natural-looking result than traditional foil highlights.

The best balayage starts with a good cut – which ultimately creates an ideal base for adding balayage to suit your features better. Your stylist will be able to advise the best cut and shape for your face, as well as the perfect color to suit your skin tone. A good colorist will be able to find the right hue for you.

Pull together some images to show your stylist what you are looking for and they will be able to work out what is best:

  • Balayage for pale skin: blonde, red, and light brown or dark brown balayage will work best.
  • Balayage for medium skin tone: avoid any light colors that can wash out the skin. Stick to warm blondes and soft browns if you want a lighter hue. The ideal colors for you would be chocolate browns and reds. If you want to experiment with the color, cool shades like blues or purples will suit you best.
  • Balayage for dark skin tone: shades of warm or ashy blonde, caramel, and light colors beautifully complement darker skin tones.
