The History of Balayage

By Sheila Venancia

This method of coloring emerged in Paris in the 1970’s; the name is French for “to sweep,” a reference to the way in which the color is applied. After it was exported to the United States, Balayage became extremely popular in the late 1990s. In the United States, the word is sometimes spelled “Balliage.”

In the 70’s, this technique was originally called “Balayage a Coton” for it’s use of cotton strips to separate the colored hair from the untouched portion. It was introduced during the time when the industry norm was frosting caps and solid colors, making the Balayage technique truly revolutionary for its time! In the 80’s the industry introduced many varieties of foil highlighting techniques and it wasn’t actually until the early 90’s that Balayage first entered the US by storm grabbing the attention of top celebrities and became one of the hottest color trends to date! When Sarah Jessica Parker began rocking the sun-kissed, dimensional color pattern in the last days of Sex & The City, every fashionista in the nation was on board.

IT IS A TECHINIQUE
When hair is colored with the Balayage process, the highlights are painted on by hand in a sweeping motion that moves from the base to the tip of the hair. At the base, the color is applied very lightly, while at the tip, the color is very heavy. The result is a chunky highlight that looks naturally sun bleached, and as the hair grows out, the root will be concealed for the first few months by the thinner color applied to the base of the hair.

Balayage can give the illusion of length if you’re in the process of growing out your hair, it can add width to your style to balance out a long face shape or it can even just add points to give drama to an asymmetrical cut. It is structure and technique and knowledge. But it is also freedom and creativity and style. Balayage is totally personal and individual and should be customized to your desires by a very experienced master colorist ….. call an ARTIST HAIR STYLIST.

NOT JUST FOR BLONDS
It’s important to note that Balayage is definitely not just for blondes. Brunettes, redheads, even those with black hair can all take advantage of hair painting. The results will be subtle, but they’ll add the dimension that everyone craves, giving dark brunette swirls of cinnamon or caramel, for example.

FOILS -VS- BALAYAGE
Foils often end up looking contrived – a neat row of uniform highlights. When a section of hair is colored using a foil, the entire section is saturated with color resulting in dense, unnatural stripes of color. Balayage color is painted in soft brush strokes across the surface of the hair, leaving you with natural-looking swipes of color that flow from thick to thin and play off the hair’s natural movement. Even better, Balayage won’t leave you with any signs of demarcation, creating a softer and more manageable grow-out.

BALICOLOR: A combination of dry haircutting and Balayage; the former maximizes the movement; the latter emphasizes it.

OMBRE BALAYAGE: The super-chic shading from dark to light in hair color, created by adding Balayage highlights on the mid-shaft and ends of the hair.
