Who created Balayage? 

In the early 70s, Dessange Paris created Balayage in France. It was pioneered and perfected in their salon. 

What is Balayage hair? 

It is the hair dye trend that changed a lot in the hair industry. It changed everything. Everyone was asking for Balayage. 

'Balayage is a French word meaning "to sweep" or "to paint" and It allows for sun-kissed natural-looking hair color, similar to what nature gives us as children.' (reference

How will you know if your Balayage is done properly?

The Balayage should be very close and soft at the root leading to a thicker highlight at the ends of the hair, and it should be applied on the surface of the section and not saturated through the section until the very tips, otherwise, you would have a streak of color that isn't very soft at all.

What should you do if your Balayage has gone wrong?

It depends on damage but doesn't worry it can be fixed with color correction which involves various techniques including a root melt and blending the Balayage or toning down and starting again. My advice is to always visit professionals.

Is it suitable for all hair types/lengths?

It perfectly works on light and dark hair. It depends on just how much lighter you want to go and all hair textures. The color can work well and look great on straight, wavy, or curly, or whatever category.
