Balayage and highlighting: what’s the difference?

Posted by Karina Lavrova on

Balayage, highlights, ombré, air touch… These are the names of super famous hair dyeing techniques that aren’t familiar to many women, especially those who have natural hair, which is perfectly fine! It’s even harder to point out the differences between these methods. Let’s start with the balayage and highlights.

Balayage is a type of hair dyeing that received its name for the way of applying hair dye. The stylist literally sweeps with a brush along individual hair strands. Separate curls become lighter along the entire hair length, while no foil or film is used, thus, the dye works in the open air. The shade transitions are so smooth that they are almost invisible.

Highlights technique aims to fix this and make hair dyeing an easier process.  Instead of two contrasting shades, you get a gentle smooth transition from one color to another. The secret is that when you create the highlight contrast, you add one color to another, mixing them and gradually making one of the colors fade, which allows you to achieve a smooth gradient transition. 

It doesn’t matter what hair dyeing option you prefer, always choose the right blonde shampoo and conditioner. Soul Color Duo Shampoo and Conditioner. The blonde care shampoo gently cleans the strands, providing antioxidant and nourishing action, protecting and renewing the strands, preventing color fading and damage to the hair fiber. The conditioner helps to protect the color and care for the hair, leaving it extremely light.
