5 Myths About Balayage - By Zak Vasselo


1. Myth: Balayage is only for blondes.

Fact: Balayage can be used to create natural-looking highlights on any hair color, from light blonde to dark brown or black. Balayage is a versatile coloring technique that can be adapted to suit any

hair type or color.


2. Myth: Balayage requires a lot of maintenance.

Fact: Balayage is a low-maintenance hair coloring technique that grows out beautifully. Since the highlights are painted onto the hair in a natural, sun-kissed pattern, they blend seamlessly into the hair as they grow out, reducing the need for frequent touch-ups.

3. Myth: Balayage is damaging to hair.

Fact: Balayage is a gentle hair coloring technique that is less damaging than traditional highlighting methods, such as foiling or cap highlighting. Because the color is painted onto the hair in a freehand, sweeping motion, it doesn't penetrate the hair shaft as deeply as traditional highlights, reducing the risk of damage and breakage. However, as with any chemical treatment, it's important to use high-quality products and work with a skilled stylist to minimize any potential damage.

4. Myth: Balayage is only for long hair.

Fact: Balayage can be used to create natural-looking highlights and dimension on any hair length!

5. Myth: Balayage is a one-size-fits-all technique.

Fact: Balayage is a highly customizable hair coloring technique that can be tailored to suit each individual's hair type, texture, and color. A skilled stylist can adjust the placement and intensity of the highlights to enhance the natural features of each client's hair and face shape. The result is a personalized look that is uniquely suited to each individual.
