Balayage is the French word for “sweep”, like with a broom, and designates the form of highlighting that is done with an artist’s stroke and a brush rather than with aluminum foil. Balayage lightener is painted directly onto the hair. Balayage wrap may be applied to separate sections but no foil is used. The results are natural looking, ‘sun-kissed’ hair like that of a child that spent the summer at the beach. Regrowth lines are much less obvious than with foil highlights. Clients adore the results!
The Balay Box, our educational starter kit, contains everything a stylist needs to learn how to do balayage. It includes a 500g container of Sunlights, a Balay Wrap (Short), a Balay Brush, a Balay Paddle, a 4-pack of Balay Clips, and an educational DVD that allows a stylist to do balayage as soon as they’re done watching the DVD, all neatly packaged in an attractive corrugated, kraft carrying case. Just add a bow and it’s the greatest gift a stylist can ever receive!
We here at Sunlights are convinced that balayage is the next BIG thing in hair color. Just as foil highlights replaced the practice of pulling hair through a cap in the 1970’s & 80’s, balayage will replace foil highlights in the not too distant future. Watch and see!
