Balayage in Richmond Va is the hair highlight technique to achieve that dreamy 'just been kissed by the sun multi dimensional look.
The French word meaning 'to sweep' or 'to paint' allows for a sun-kissed natural-looking hair color, similar to what nature gives us as children.
Balayage has softer, less noticeable regrowth lines than traditional highlights - the principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks. There's no stripy look like you can get with foil highlights, Balayage emulates the parts of your hair that would naturally lighten in the sun.
These techniques work with the individual's haircut and natural hair growth patterns as well as the variance of tones in the hair, for a totally bespoke finish. Because it's handpainted, your colourist can choose the placements to best complement your haircut, skin and features so it looks really natural rather than actually colored.
