What is Balayage:
Balayage is a French colouring technique that was developed in the 1970s.The French meaning of Balayage is "to sweep” and is known for the way it displays soft highlights rather than a sharp stripy look. It's a freehand technique where the colour is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques.
You know how when you were younger, your hair would go lighter from being in the sun, well, balayage gives off that exact sun-kissed natural looking hair colour!
Difference Between Balayage and Ombre:
Ombre is the process in which the hair is dyed in a gradation from dark to light which is why it’s original meaning is "shadow” in French. Ombre results in a lighter colour transition going from the mid-shaft of your hair to the ends and with darker hair from your roots to the mid-shaft.
This means that there aren’t any dark bits of hair at the bottom as the hair is essentially just going from dark to light in the smoothest transition possible. This is completely different to the Balayage technique as with Balayage there are darker pieces left at the bottom which cause extra depth and dimension.
There is also no clear fade between the darker and lighter colours when a balayage technique is used. This creates the final result of being a seamless blend of the highlights and your natural hair colour.
