A perfect Balayage technique.

A perfect Balayage technique.






The stylists at Antonino Salon and Spa were treated to another advanced education seminar on August 19th.

This time it was to perfect the art of Balayage. This special hair coloring technique was designed to create very natural-looking highlights that grow out without a noticeable and obvious root. Meaning “to sweep” in French, balayage emerged in the 1970’s in Paris and has grown in popularity ever since.

When hair is colored using the balayage technique, highlights are painted on by hand in a sweeping motion that moves from the base of the head to the tip of the hair. At the base, hair color is applied very lightly, while at the tip, the color is applied heavily, creating a chunky highlight that looks naturally sun-kissed. The end result is a natural and beautiful color that has a diffused root line as it grows out, so roots are less noticeable and require less maintenance than traditional highlights.
