Que es el Balayage?

El balayage es una tecnica francesa de coloracion del cabello creada para dar dimension y profundidad a los cabellos,

Que significa la palabra Balayage?

La palabra Balayage en frances significa” pincelada” y se denomina de esta manera  a esta  tecnica ya que se trabaja con la mecha suspendida y apoyada en una paleta, y se deposita el producto aclarante con un ligero deslizamiento de la brocha sobre el cabello.

Cual es el efecto que el Balayage crea en el cabello?

Contrastando con las mechas procesadas en  aluminio el balayage no tiene un patron repetitivo ni  lineas definidas, por lo que es recomendable cuando se busca dar a los cabellos dimension, profundidad y un efecto soleado natural en el cual las mechas se difuminan fusionandose con el color base.

Cual es el nivel de mantenimiento que requiere el Balayage?

El Balayage es una tecnica de relativamente bajo mantenimiento, considerando que no deja barrera entre el cabello procesado y el nuevo crecimiento, es hoy en dia una de las opciones mas convenientes para la mujer actual ya que no es necesario hacer un retoque a las seis semanas sino que se puede extender a ocho o mas y tambien jugar con un champu color entre proceso y proceso para reavivarlas y hacerlas lucir frescas otra vez.

Es el Balayage recomendable para todo tipo de cabellos?

El balayage siempre lucira mejor en cabellos naturales y largos, debido a la transparencia que cobra el cabello al ser procesado, y al movimiento que se puede crear  con un estilo playero de ondas grandes y relajadas. de todas maneras el hecho de tener un color preexistente no siempre es un factor condicionante, se pueden tambien lograr muy buenos resultados en cabellos que han sido coloreados profesionalmente en niveles no mas oscuros que un nivel cinco.

Es el Balayage compatible con otras tecnicas  de coloracion?

Dadas las caracteristicas del efecto que crea el Balayage en el cabello, es el complemento ideal para balancear un proceso de “Ombre” ya que ayuda a distribuir la luminosidad en areas como el marco de la cara  y la cuspide que de otra manera no seria posible hacerlo solo con la tecnica del “Ombre” ya que solo se trabaja en la parte inferior del cabello. Si prestamos atencion, en la actualidad, la mayoria de las modelos top y celebridades tales como Gisele Bundchen o Jessica Biel, son la viva imagen de una tendencia que vino para quedarse.

What does the word Balayage mean?

 

The word Balayage in French means brushwork and thus is referred to this technique as it works the strand of hair while suspended and supported on a pallet wick, then the enlightener is deposited on the hair with a slip of the brush.

 

What is the effect created in the Balayage hair?

 

Contrasting with the wicks processed with aluminum foil, the balayage does  not have a repetitive  pattern or defined lines, so it is advisable when looking to give dimension, depth and a natural sunny effect in which the wicks are blurred by merging with the base color.

 

What is the level of maintenance that the Balayage requires?

 

The Balayage is a technique with a relatively low maintenance, whereas leaves no barrier between the processed hair and new growth, it is today one of the most convenient color options for women as it is not necessary to do a touch-up at six weeks but can be extended to eight or more and also play with a shampoo color between process and process to revive them and make them look fresh again.

 

Balayage is recommended for all hair types?

 

The balayage always looks better in natural and long hair, because the hair takes more transparency when processed, due to the absence of a previous artificial pigment  the movement can create a large beach style and relaxed waves. Anyway, having a pre-existing color is not always a determining factor, it can also achieve very good results in hair that has been colored professionally no darker than a level five.

 

 

Is it compatible with other Balayage coloring techniques?

 

Given the characteristics of the effect that the Balayage creates on the hair, it is ideal for balancing a process of ” Ombre ” because it helps distribute the brightness in areas such as the face frame and the crown, that otherwise would not be  possible to do so only with the technique of ” Ombre ” as it only works on the bottom of the hair.  If we pay attention, at present, most of the top models and celebrities such as Gisele Bundchen and Jessica Biel are the image of a beautiful trend that is here to stay.

Balayage Highlights in a Local Coral Gables Salon

We are a salon located in Coral Gables on Miracle Mile called Avant-Garde. We’ve been in Coral Gables over thirty (30) years and we wanted to share a hair coloring technique called Balayage with you. Hair color at Avant-Garde is about giving you that specific look you’re looking for and we realized that not too many people were familiar with Balayage or had never even heard of it. So, the purpose of this blog post is to give you the information you need so you can decide if you’re interested in giving this technique a try.

Balayage is a French term that means “sweeping” or “to sweep.” It is named after the way in which the color is applied to the hair. It is actually swept on or painted on by hand leaving a more natural looking highlight or lowlight. The technique was developed as a new way to add variation to hair color with a more natural appearance and a more subtle grow out. The color can also be applied for a more bold variation depending on the client’s willingness.

People also refer to this technique of middle-range highlights as ‘free-hand’, which means these are done by hand and without aluminum foils. Basically the stylist saturates the very tips, more than the middle of the strand so it mimics those sun-kissed highlights they are trying to achieve. This way, the hair looks as though you just spent the summer at the beach and ends up giving a very natural look.

We have performed this technique on several clients and we’d like to share some images on our Facebook so if you’re considering something new for your hair with color, perhaps you might be interested in giving Balayage a try with one of our capable colorists.
