Balayage

Pronounced: ba·lay·age

Balayage is a French word translated as sweeping, referring to the technique for highlighting the hair. The result is a graduated, natural looking, sun-kissed effect. The principal idea being less is more, this painting technique results in a softer, lower maintenance natural look.
