Balayage Copenhagen

What is balayage?

Balayage originates from the French word “balayer”, which means ‘to sweep’ or ‘brush’, which describes the way in which the color is applied to the hair.

The technique involves dividing the hair into sections, after which the hairdresser in “freehand” places stripes directly in the hair to create a graduated, more natural-looking highlight effect.

Because freehand is used for a balayage, it is the hairdresser’s experience and creativity that is decisive for how the stripes are placed, and thus determine what the end result will look like.

A good balayage should always be customized to fit the hairstyle and personality of the client and should add a fresh and natural touch to the hair. The “Balayage look” is most often described as the ‘beach look’ where the sun’s rays have naturally bleached different areas of the hair.


What is the difference between balayage and highlights?

Balayage gives a more natural result, as the stripes are laid “imperfect”. As such there are no big contrasts between the colors in the hair or ‘defined stripes’, which can often be the case when getting regular highlights.

Balayage does not give outgrowths in the same manner as many other hair coloring techniques do, because the stripes are typically laid away from the roots and focused towards the center of the hair and the ends, as opposed to highlights which are generally placed close to the scalp, lightening the hair from the roots to the tips.

Balayage is a more economical coloring method than highlights, as it does not require refreshment every 5 weeks.
Balayage does not require the same level of maintenance as traditional highlights or Babylights. A balayage is most often darker at the base, and from there the color then fades and becomes lighter, and therefore does not require the same maintenance as traditional color treatments.

Unlike typical highlights, balayage does not reveal that you just got your hair colored as highlights do.

Who can get balayage?

Balayage can be applied to any hair texture and hair color.

Whether your hair is super dark, red, or if you are a natural brunette, you can try these natural-looking highlights.

The technique of coloring the hair freely allows the hairdresser to adapt the color details to any hairstyle.

Positioning, grading, and coloring are based on hair color, texture, and length, and are tailored to highlight or soften facial features.

In addition, toning can be made in cold or hot combinations, depending on what best suits your skin and your personality.

In reality, no two balayages should ever look the same.
