Balayage is all the rage but what makes it different from getting highlights? While there are many techniques for hair, balayage and highlights are often the two that most people are confused about.
Typically highlights are done with foils and the color goes from the roots to the end of the hair. While balayage is a process of painting on the color. Given that the color is hand painted on, it gives a more natural look and makes the grow out process less obvious. Traditional foil highlights generally need to be touched up after about 6-8 weeks, while with a balayage, one can wait until about 12 weeks!
