Balayage is an absolutely beautiful highlighting technique that looks buttery and sun-soaked and looks incredible with every skin tone. If you are familiar with hair trends, you know that balayage is incredibly popular! If you’re not too familiar with it, here’s a little run down from MadisonReed.com;
“Pronounced BAH-LEE-AHGE, balayage is actually a French word meaning ‘sweeping,’ as in to sweep on a hair lightener to create highlights. Balayage is the technique of free-hand painting highlights onto the hair, creating a soft and natural gradation of lightness towards the ends. The result is the look of summers spent at the beach, or the fresh, unintentionally perfect highlights on a child. This natural-looking highlighting technique is not just for blondes, but is actually used on all shades of hair to add soft, sunkissed dimension.”
I hopped on the balayage train about 3 years ago and let me tell you, I’ve never felt less pressured to keep up with my dark roots! I am a very, verrryyy low maintenance girl so this effortlessly beautiful hair color is the best thing to ever happen to me. Instead of going to my hairstylist every 3-ish months, I can now get away with only going twice a year and I love that for my busy schedule.

You really can’t go wrong with balayage! Brightening up your current color doesn’t have to require a head full of bleach or a trip to the salon every other month to maintain the beachy blonde. Balayage is an effortless style that looks amazing on any skin tone. Low maintenance hair is the best 🙂 Thank you for showing my little blog some love and stopping by. See ya soon!
