The most talked about color technique in Hollywood at the moment is...if you guessed Balayage, you are right! Balayage is a french word that means to sweep or to paint. The technique involves the stylist doing just that, painting on the hair in a sweeping motion to create natural sun kissed highlights. The difference often noticed between foil highlights and Balayage is the grow out period, where foil hilights tend to be very noticable as the roots grow in, but balayaged hair grows out seamlessly.
