What is Balayage Hair Color?
Balayage highlights or Hair Painting has been around for decades but is now becoming the latest trend in the hair industry. Balayage is a french term meaning “to sweep” or “to paint.” Balayage became increasingly popular in the Spring of 2015, finally bringing this great technique to the mainstream. While Balayage has been around for decades, models, musicians and celebrities brought to light the beautiful natural yet bold effect of a masterfully done Hair Painting. This creative way to add dimension to hair is now one of the most sought after hair services in the world.
Balayage highlights give you that “lived in” look with the roots remaining deeper and the lightness slowly increasing down the hair strand, as if from the sun. The hair looks natural and soft, with little to no re-growth lines visible. This hair coloring technique is painted on the surface of your hair, with all over color at the roots if needed. Hair stylists use a freehand technique, painting in the highlights usually without tinfoil, to make the hair color blend seamlessly. It takes an artistic eye, and should work with the haircut to enhance every shape.As your natural color grows in, the highlights create a flawless look as it grows out.
How Much Does This Service Cost?
There are several factors that can have an effect on price. Let’s break them down to a couple main factors, time and product costs. The main factors here are the length and thickness of your hair. Hair history also is a factor.
Lightening Process: The first process is most often completed with a professional bleach. Pricing is broken down by a full head or partial head single bleaching process.

Toning Process: Whenever bleach is used, a toning process is required to create your desired color. A single toning process is $30-35. More than one toning process may be required to achieve your desired color and may be required if you have long or thick hair.
Bleach Protection Additive: Whenever bleach is used to lighten your hair it is very highly recommend to use a bleach protection additive. This will help tremendously in protecting the health of your hair. A single use additive is $35 for short to medium length hair. For long, thick hair or extensions additive can be $45+.
Hair History: If your hair has been dyed recently or has taken any damage recently this can affect the processes your hair needs as well as product needs to achieve your desired look.

Ombre is a Form of Balayage
Don’t worry if these two terms have confused you. It’s common. People often, and incorrectly, use them interchangeably. Ombre is a form of balayage where one color graduates to the next. Most commonly a rooty brown to blonde. Balayage typically is balanced and natural. (Bonus points, a color-melt is the graduation of three or more colors.) So, while all ombre is balayage, not all balayage is ombre.
