If you’re someone looking to lighten your hair for the first time or regularly gets their hair highlighted, you’ve probably wondered if Balayage is for you.

But what is Balayage? And how is it different from highlights?

Balayage is a freehand technique which allows the grow-out to be less obvious. This technique gives the hair a soft or muted root then gets progressively lighter as it travels through the ends. If your look is more organic or edgy, balayage may be the best fit because you have that freedom of not fussing with it for up to 3 months.

Highlighting your hair can give your hair an overall lighter look from roots to ends. There can be less damage done to your hair when highlighting because you’re generally only lightening the new growth. This is a “cleaner” look that works well for women who want a more polished look.
