Balayage Hair Color For Brown & Dark Hair
The highlights done using this technique look very natural because they start closer to the roots than the tip. A specialized stylist can give you breezy topical beachy look by coloring your hair strands without using foils. We often feel that highlights tend to look very unnatural on Indian/ dark hair and this is where balayage is the preferred choice. Balayage on brown or dark hair looks extremely natural and in my opinion looks the best!

How is Balayage Hair Coloring Done?
Balayage is a French word which means “sweeping” so when hair is highlighted using the Balayage technique, the color is swept from the base to the tip. The colorist first sections your hair and takes a small chosen section and sweeps the color vertically thereby coating the front and back of the hair majorly.. The coloring is done without using foils. Instead of the foils, the stylist sometimes uses a hair color brush and a wooden paddle for color application. After coloring each section, it is covered using cellophane. The results give you effortless sun-kissed highlights.

Balayage vs Ombre
Many people are comparing Balayage Hair Color with Ombre. Well, I would like to clarify that Ombre is a hair coloring trend but Balayage is a technique of coloring and both cannot be compared together. Ombre is the gradual lightening of the hair ie dark roots to lights tips in a gradient effect. Balayage on the other hand are natural, sun kissed highlights.
Balayage is low-maintenance than ombre with no regular visits to the salon for touch-ups. Ombre is preferred more for long hair so that the results are visible clearly while balayage is perfect for every length and I’ve seen balayage on short hair look pretty amazing too. Both the trends are very different and it just depends on what kind of look you’d prefer, subtle or striking.
