What’s The Difference Between Balayage And Highlights?
Reflections of You Salons / W Salon is a high performance hair salon with locations 2 in Fairfax and 1 in Burke Va.
Balayage has softer, less noticeable regrowth lines than traditional highlights – the principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks. There’s no stripy look like you can get with foil highlights, Balayage emulates the parts of your hair that would naturally lighten in the sun. However keep in mind this is form mid shaft to ends. Not ideal for gray coverage.
Also, Balayage is a freehand technique as no foil or meche are used to create the highlights.
Hair highlighting. Hair highlighting/lowlighting is changing a person’s hair color, using lightener or haircolor to color hair strands from scalp to ends. There are four basic types ofhighlights: foil highlights, hair painting, frosting, and chunking. Highlights can be done in natural or unnatural colors.
