Columbus Hair Trends is excited to offer Balayage highlights, which are also called “hair painting,” Balayage creates the most natural looking results because the highlights are literally painted on, and can be scatter them throughout your hair in a more truly sunkissed and haphazard pattern. Balayage is French meaning “to sweep”. With traditional hair coloring, the majority of the brush strokes are horizontal in nature to coat the front and back of the hair strands. But with Balayage, we “sweep” vertically with the tip of the brush and only to the front of the hair. Thus creating natural, sun kissed highlights.
If you want low maintenance, subtle color, and like your hair straight, then balayage is great for you. Balayage may not require bleach depending on how light you want to go. Remember, it’s supposed to look natural, so you will probably only go 2-3 shades lighter than your natural color. Because the color is painted on the hair vertically, you will not get that dreaded “line” meaning that as the color grows out, it will be less noticeable, making time between salon appointments longer. You can also straighten that hair without having to worry about seeing noticeable lines of color. And you can also wear it wavy or curly!
