Today we are going to decipher the keys to this trend, warm and flattering, specially created to illuminate brown and brown hair.

Goodbye to California highlights, hello to balayage highlights

Do you remember when Californians triumphed in highlighted hairstyles? Although they have not completely disappeared, little by little they have been replaced by balayage highlights, similar to babylights , ombré, or inverted highlights .

Do you want to know how these are different from their famous predecessors? Read carefully the explanation of our hairdressing stylists.

Balayage is a French word that means “sweep.” And this is precisely the effect that is achieved with this style. Unlike the Californian, which are applied from the middle to the ends, this technique consists of highlighting the entire length of the hair to achieve a natural reflection. While in the Californian ones the contrast is sought, in the latter the objective is to create much more subtle reflections of light.

The balayage technique was developed in French hairdressers in the 1970s. To obtain the desired effect, you must have a great command of this technique, since they are done freehand with the help of a brush. If you want to wear them on your hair, go to your trusted stylists to get the color effect you are looking for. The tone is applied only in the precise areas of your hair, playing with the contrast of lights and shadows. The result of the set is a mane full of strength and movement.

One of the advantages of balayage highlights is that by not using silver foil, the process can be more easily controlled, modulating the shades, reaching the root or moving away from it, depending on the preferences of each one. In this way you can space out the touch-ups or play with different hues creating vibrant and natural ‘multi-flare’ effects.

Choosing the correct shade will depend on the result you want to achieve:

  • Ombré : for a subtle color effect.
  • Californian Balayage : its gradient effect between roots and ends is more pronounced.
  • Sun Kiss : applied from the roots to the ends, 2 or 3 shades lighter than the natural color.
  • Balayage babylights : perfect for light foundations creating thin, lighter veils that frame the face.
