a balyage specialist. The first time I saw balayage I was struck by the artistry and softness of the result. For me hair is about freshness, the illusion of youthfulness and sex and for me balayage offered all of this, so I went on courses and studied the technique so I could introduce it to my clients.People often ask what exactly the technique is, it originated in France and means to sweep or paint. Highlights are painted onto the hair following the hairs natural wave and growth patterns, this allows a truly personalised set of highlights which are pretty and soft, all the things I believe hair colour should be and something that cannot be achieved with foils.
The difference between foils and balayage is that, balayage is painted onto the hair, the regrowth is softer and less of a tell-tale when hair is pulled back and parted. Foils are perfectly placed but balayage is more organic. The brightest pieces are always placed
