Wanded Curls With Balayage Highlights

Wanded Curls With Balayage Highlights-Dark brown hair highlighted using the Balayage technique!


Balayage is a slight variation on the ever-popular ombre highlights. The longer answer is that in French, balayage means “scanning” or “sweeping.” With the balayage technique, highlights are hand-painted on (as opposed to highlights being added by painting chunks in foil, or pulling strands through a cap and highlighting them). The longer your hair, the more dramatic the effect, however balayage works on all hair lengths, from short to long.

What makes balayage especially great for women on the go is that the highlights are painted on most heavily toward the bottom of your hair, and sparsely to not-at-all near your scalp, so when your hair grows out, it’s not so obvious. If you don’t have grays and you retain your natural hair color, you can let your hair grow out for months and your balayage will still look relatively fresh. It’s probably one of the most low-maintenance color services you can get.

If you’ve had your hair colored with the balayage technique, you’re probably quickly learning that hair looks best wavy, to really make your color pop. Ask you hairstylist at Bella Capelli to complete the look with wanded curls! Wanded curls are done using a one to one-and-a-half inch curling iron, curling approx two inch sections at a time. The ends are left out of the curl to create a more relaxed look.
