If you want to add beautiful, naturally bright highlights to your hair, the increasingly popular balayage highlight technique is the perfect way to get that eye-catching, enviously sexy style. With celebrities like Drew Barrymore and Jessica Biel showing off their own balayage highlights, the technique quickly became a specialty service offered only to a select clientele…until now.
Balayage literally translates to mean “sweeping.” The balayage highlighting technique creates superior results because the colorist is able to sweep on each highlight and control placement of the color. The colorists at Azur West achieve balayage highlights by taking a small section of hair, sweeping color onto the top and then using a paddle to apply more color to the bottom of each section. The innovative balayage technique gives total control of the color placement to the colorist, while also allowing them to create the beautifully natural and unique highlights you always wanted.
The benefit of balayage highlights goes far beyond giving the colorist more control over color placement. Balayage highlights also create a more natural, multidimensional looking color. Azur West colorists are able to sweep more color onto areas where the sun naturally hits your hair the most, while sweeping less color in areas to make the growth appear more gradual and natural. When highlights are done using the foil technique, you only achieve one solid color from root to tip. Balayage highlights give rich and beautiful tones to your hair, resulting in a better color from root to tip.
Balayage highlights also offer the added benefit of longer lasting results. Colorists at Azur West expertly utilize the balayage technique to apply highlights, so when your hair begins to grow out at the roots, it is much less obvious. This means you can wait longer before returning to have your balayage highlights touched up. The balayage technique is also perfect for gray hair, as it allows the colorist to single out only the gray strands of hair without having to apply overall color. Let one of the expert colorists at Azur West show you how balayage highlights can transform your hair.
