Are you considering Balayage for your hair? This Summer I took an incredible two day advanced balayage course, by The Business of Balayage. I always make efforts to find the best classes that are out there. Whether it means traveling to get to them, or waiting until they come to a City near me- it's worth the effort. Why spend time and money on something other then the best? Working this client(below) into balayage. We did a more subtle highlight with some hair painting this time around-so foils and balyage (freehand painting) in between. Hoping to go full balayage next visit! Read on to learn about balayage conversion and if it's right for you.
If you have been getting foils for a while, but are interested in a lower maintenance color, or a more natural, and on trend look- you may be the perfect candidate for a balayage conversion. With balayage, you should expect to see your highlights a bit farther out from your scalp, with exception to the front hair line(if you would like- it looks killer!). This may be a bit of a shock at first... so know it's coming! Do your homework, and get it done right. What is a correct conversion look like? It should not just look like grown out foils.. that is for sure. Expect some hair color to be used to cover some of the old foil work, and create more depth by imitating your natural color. If you are in Austin, book a consult with me to chat about your future conversion!
More of what to expect:
-Few light pieces growing from your scalp- many starting a 1-4 inches from your scalp.
-Brighter color around your face
-Less long visits to the salon for highlights
-Adding glazes to your haircuts in between the balayage appointments to keep color on point.
-People to compliment your hair all of the time!
