29 Mar Balayage: What You Need to Know
Balayage has been around for a while, but its popularity has recently skyrocketed thanks to its use
on the red carpet and catwalks. Client are now flocking to MAGIO to get their hair coloured using
this technique. If you’re considering getting balayage done on your hair, you may be wondering what
you need to know. We sat down with our resident Balayage expert, Maria Kama to get the inside
scoop on this French hair colouring technique.
Balayage is different from traditional highlights, which involve using a foiling technique to give a
symmetrical appearance. With Balayage, highlights are painted on, giving a more natural look that
mimics the pattern of lightness that the sun creates.
Benefits of Balayage
At MAGIO Balayage highlights are painted on by the colourist, resulting in a low maintenance,
versatile, and beautiful set of highlights.
Balayage highlights typically only require touch-ups every 8-12 weeks, which can save you time and
money. In contrast, regular highlights may need touched up in as little as six weeks.
Balayage highlights require less saturation of your hair in bleach or colour dye, resulting in healthier,
softer, and silkier hair with less damage and dryness.
