A couple of weeks ago, Jess, from Girlycopyright.com, kindly offered to colour my hair. I wanted to go a bit lighter and she suggested me to try a Balayage.
To be honest, I didn’t know what she was talking about till she showed me some pictures. But after doing some research I really liked the idea of the Balayage.
For the newbies on the Balayage trend like me, here you have the Balayage definition from Vogue Australia “Balayage is a French colouring technique that was developed in the 1970s. It’s a freehand technique where the colour is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques. Balayage can be used in even the shortest pixie crop however the best results is in hair below the shoulders.”
So, even though the technique is quite old, I had never heard about it. It’s incredible how many new things we can learn, don’t you think?
I was getting more and more excited about the Balayage, so went on Pinterest to get some inspiration. Here are my favourite Balayages from Pinterest:
Jess has written a post about how she Balayaged my hair – you can read it here.
We had a lovely day colouring and styling my hair and I’m so happy with the results.
After two weeks of having Balayage hair, I can say that it was a really good decision.
The Balayage is perfect for this time of the year, when we want to move away from the dark winter colours and start going lighter, not only on the clothes we wear, but also on our hair.
What do you think about the Balayage technique? Have you ever had your hair Balayaged?
