BRING ON THE BALAYAGE!

"Balayage" comes from another French word meaning "to sweep" or "to paint". It first appeared in a salon in Paris in the 1970s—revolutionary given that it was a time that frosting caps dominated the industry! While the technique actually predates foil highlights in France, balayage didn't actually make it's way to the United States until the 1990s since foils dominated fashion in the 1980s..

Balayage is an artform, and like any great artist you need the proper tools for success. At Salon Service Group we understand that you need to devote your attention to the placement of highlights and framing of the face, while considering the hair's natural texture and movement, and even whether or not the client frequently wears her hair up! Sacré bleu!
