What is Balayage? First off, let’s work on the pronunciation: bah-ley-ahzh. If you guessed the word sounds French, you guessed right! It is a French word meaning to sweep or paint and the hair is actually hand-painted in freestyle motion to create beautiful, natural-looking highlights without the use of foils or caps. The technique first began in France in the ‘70s, man, and has been around ever since. What is so great about this technique is that it’s low maintenance and it can be applied to any hair length or color.
