What is the difference between highlights, balayage and foilyage?
  • Highlights: Foils are used to create traditional highlights throughout your hair. After each strand is coated in bleach, it’s then wrapped in a sheet of foil to develop. This process helps to separate each highlight for a more uniform look and speeds up the lightening process by trapping heat. Foil highlights typically go from the root down to the ends of each strand.
  • Balayage: Balayage, as you likely already know, has become one of the hottest hair highlighting techniques over the years, especially on social media. That’s because this technique is best for delivering a natural look as the process involves your colorist hand painting your hair for a seamless, sun-kissed-inspired head of highlights. Balayage highlights also typically feature a lived-in root, making the look low-maintenance.
  • Foilyage: As you may have been able to guess by now, is a combination of foils and balayage. The process involves your colorist hand painting highlights throughout your hair before wrapping each in a sheet of foil. This combines the natural look of balayage with the sped-up process of foils and helps to create a brighter look.
Do color appointments include a haircut or blow dry?
