We have already said many times about balayage in the recent past, and even today we still have the pleasure of returning to this topic with a good in-depth analysis that will certainly allow you to understand why the balayage is a of the coolest coloring / bleaching techniques of the moment. But are you sure you understand exactly what it is?
Let’s start by remembering that balayage is an excellent technique, recently invented compared to other ways of lightening hair, which allows you to reduce some shades of your color, creating an impression on your head that is very similar to that it could be obtained by offering the foliage to prolonged exposure. In other words, with balayage it is possible to try to obtain the most natural reflections possible, playing on a contrast that can be personalized with one’s own color base. The result – as mentioned – will be much more natural, lively and dynamic than what can be found with other technical types.
As is known, balayage can potentially be replicated even at home, with some foresight “removed” from the best beauty salons. However, since it is a technique that needs some specificity and a lot of manual skill, our advice is to go directly to your hairdresser. He will calibrate the tone contrasts on the basis of what could be your “top”.
We also remember, on this occasion, that balayage is a more complex technique than you might think, which involves a second coloring after the first, in order to make the lightening effect more natural (contrary to what happens for example with the deserving shatush, which instead provides only a lightening phase).
A further tip that should induce you to resort to balayage only from your trusted hairdresser is linked to the longevity of the treatment: the balayage should in fact not be repeated too often, as it still brings a little stress to your hair. Better to limit yourself to two or three applications per year, directly from your hairstylist, who will certainly take care of identifying the healthiest and most effective products to ensure a long-lasting result.
