27 Trendy And Edgy Short Hair Balayage Ideas
While the soft fades of color applied in the ombre technique look better on long hair, balayage highlights can be considered an alternative to ombre hair for shorter lengths. It’s a terrific way to add depth, dimension, and visual interest to your bob or pixie. But first let’s find out what’s balayage.
What Is Balayage?
Balayage is a technique where hair color is painted onto the hair to create a graduated, more natural-looking highlight effect. Simply put, balayage is a highlighting technique that doesn’t use foils. Instead, your hair colorist will hand-paint color directly onto your hair, creating more natural, blended, sun-kissed color. Despite being a softer effect, it also allows your colorist more control, and it’s crucial for creating all those blended-drink-inspired hues like brown ale and raspberry bourbon.
