Dear Donna, What is Balayage?

In this post, Tei Salon stylist and L’Oreal Professionnel Educator, Donna Ellison, answers a “Dear Donna” letter from a client about the balayage hair color technique.

Dear Donna,
What is Balayage and what are its advantages?

Sincerely,  Needs Some Shine

Balayage highlights provide a sun-kissed lookDear Needs Some Shine,

I would love to explain my latest passion!  Balayage (bah-lee-ahzge) is derived from the French word ‘balai’ which means ‘to sweep’. Simply, the stylist paints free hand highlights on the surface of the hair. The end result is a beautiful sun-kissed look. Balayage is not just for blondes. All hair types are great for this technique. The extended time between visits and allowing the stylist to give a truly customized service are great advantages. I also believe that Balayage is here to stay!
