What is Balayage?

Balayage has become one of the most coveted requests in hair salons worldwide. While blonde balayage may have exploded in popularity in the past few years, the dyeing technique has been around for quite some time, only recently sneaking its way into modern hair salons. Over the years, hairstylists have perfected the art of balayage, and as celebrities and supermodels alike show off their sun-kissed blonde hair colour, it’s safe to say, balayage blonde highlights North York from SEEFU Hair are here to stay.

Balayage is a French word meaning to “sweeping.” Its name translates explicitly to the freehand technique used to create a low-maintenance, blended and natural look with no harsh dye lines. When done correctly, your stylist takes a small section of hair and sweeps the colour onto the top before applying more colour towards the bottom. This method of lightening the ends allows for more control, as well as creates trendy and effortless sun-kissed highlights.

What is the difference between Balayage and Ombre?

If you’re ready to change up your hair and you can’t decide between Ombre and Balayage, you’re not alone. The most significant difference between balayage and ombre is how the colour is applied.

Balayage

With Balayage, not all the ends will be affected by the dye, and the transition between dark and light is much longer and more natural-looking. With this technique, soft, highlighted hair intermingled with darker strands to create a dynamic look that’s full of movement and body. As a result, individuals with thin hair turn to this technique to increase the appearance of thickness in their hair. As your hair grows, the highlights stay atop the first layer, growing out evenly and softly without any hard colour separation. 

Ombre

Ombre is the gradual blending of one colour hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark. While the roots remain dark, the hair slowly lightens down the length of the strand until it hits the lightest, most highlighted points at the ends. If done correctly, Ombre mimics the natural colour change of your hair in the summer months. The new hair growth will stay your natural colour while the ends, which are exposed to more sun than the roots, turn a shade lighter. 

In short, Ombre is more of a style, while Balayage is a technique. However, both result in a low-maintenance routine as the colour placement is not strict but done in gradual or sweeping arrangements. Choosing the right colour treatment for you depends on the look you’re trying to achieve. However, for a timeless, low-maintenance and sun-kissed look 365 of the year, book your appointment at SEEFU for balayage blonde highlights North York.

How to Care for

 North York

Keeping your brand new balayage blonde highlights vibrant and looking healthy requires proper maintenance and up-keep. Bleaching hair is a chemical process that removes the natural pigments from your hair fibres. We have a collection of tips to combat damage to your follicles and strands of your hair and preserve the bright colours of your latest balayage blonde highlights North York.

  • Tone Your Hair


    As dark hair is typically warm-toned, without proper aftercare and maintenance, your bleached hair can quickly turn brassy. One of the best ways to combat brassiness is with toners. Toners contain just enough pigment to improve your hair colour and restore its brightness and vibrancy. 


  • Purple Shampoo

    Purple Shampoo works by using the colour purple to colour-correct warm tones in bleached blonde hair. Because Purple is directly opposite to yellow on the colour wheel, they work to cancel each other out. Therefore, when you use purple shampoo, it neutralizes warm yellow shades and hides brassy tones to reintroduce a more platinum tint.


  • Wash Your Hair Less Often

    Shampoos are designed to remove dirt and oil from the hair. However, over-washing your hair will strip away crucial nutrients and essential oils that help to keep your hair healthy. It is essential to wash your hair every three to four days, as well as buy a gentle dry shampoo to spray on your roots to stretch the time you can go between washes.
