Boulder County Masters Balayage
Updated: Oct 1, 2019
What is balayage?
Balayage is a French term meaning “to sweep.” Therefore, balayage highlights are hand-painted or "swept" along the hair for a more natural look. Application begins light and becomes heaviest at the ends of the hair, concentrating the color or lightener on the surface of each section. This keeps the underside of the hair darker, creating full dimension. Balayage is a technique suitable for any hair color, from blondes to reds to browns. The best part? Balayage highlights are cost-effective because they don’t require those frequent touch-ups (since the hair at the top is kept darker).
How do I choose a balayage stylist?
Because balayage involves hand-painting, the artistry of your hair stylist is a valuable component and can make or break your color result. You'll want to select artists that have extensive experience working with this technique and can back up that experience with beautiful portfolio pieces of the same technique. Maven is proud tocall itself home to four of these balayage masters.
