I'd like to clarify the many misconceptions I've been hearing over the past several months. Let's begin..
Most new clients I meet confuse Balayage with Ombre. Bal-a-yage is a Technique; a way to perform a highlight. It means to 'sweep' or 'brush' in French. You use Balayage to create an Ombre type look (among other looks). Balayage is a softer highlight than your classic weave/foil technique. You literally brush on the highlight with color and/or lightener with a color brush. Pros: softer grow out with no harsh lines of demarcation. Cons: will cost a little more than traditional weave/foil highlights. You need a practiced hand that is experienced with the brush strokes. This is the preferred method because the grow out is so seamless that you can extend your visit to the salon exponentially.
Also on a side note. Balayage is not to be confused with Dip-dye! Again a picture is worth a thousand words...
