One of the most mispronounced and misunderstood terms in the hair world today, Balayage, is quickly becoming the new standard in hair colour.  A French word that literally means "sweeping" is a technique for highlighting hair in which the hair colour is painted on in such a way to create a graduated, natural-looking effect.  Say goodbye to the stark root lines of traditional highlights and say hello to stunning, blended colour that will see you making fewer trips to the salon.

The beauty of balayage is that it utilizes your natural root colour and enhances your locks to mimic the way sun naturally lightens the ends of your hair.  It's also a great way for brunettes to experiment with blonde without getting trapped in the six-week root colour cycle. Ultimately, balayage will allow you to make huge strides in the growth and health of your hair as you will be lightening your hair much less often than traditional colour.
