What is balayage?

Balayage is a French coloring technique that originated in the 1970s and has since become a favorite in salons around the world. The word “balayage” means “sweeping,” which describes exactly how the paint is applied. Unlike traditional foil highlights, in balayage the color is applied by hand for a natural, sunkissed effect. This technique creates subtle, soft tones that look like you just got back from a sunny vacation.

At day&night in Amsterdam, we celebrate the creativity and versatility of this technique, which allows you to create a gorgeous, personalized look that seamlessly blends shades of color. The result? A multidimensional hair color with depth and variety, perfect for a fresh, modern look. Consult with our experienced stylists and go for a hair color that will leave you feeling confident and radiant.

The benefits of balayage

1. Natural look

Balayage creates a soft and natural look, as if the hair has been naturally lightened by the sun over time.

2. Low maintenance

Unlike traditional highlights, balayage leaves no visible outgrowth thanks to its subtle color differences. This makes it a low-maintenance choice. A treatment stays beautiful for at least four to five months.

3. Versatility

Balayage works well on different hair lengths, types, textures and colors, making it suitable for anyone who wants to take the beauty of their hair to the next level.

4. Custom look

With balayage, your stylist can adjust the placement of color to your specific preferences and facial features, resulting in a personalized look that enhances your natural beauty.

This is how the balayage technique works

Balayage is often called an art form because it requires the skilled hand of a trained stylist to achieve the desired effect. Each treatment begins with a personal consultation, where the stylist carefully analyzes your needs and hair type. This takes into account your natural hair color, texture and desired look.

Then, with expert precision and creativity, the paint is applied by hand. This method ensures a seamless, natural transition of colors, from subtle highlights to deeper shades. Throughout the process, we pay close attention to detail and quality, resulting in a customized, stunning balayage that accentuates your personality and enhances your natural beauty.

Balayage vs. highlights: what sets them apart?

Balayage and highlights are both hair coloring techniques, but they differ in technique and end result, among other things:

Technique: balayage is a free-hand technique for an artistic approach, while highlights often use foils or caps to isolate and lighten specific sections of hair;

Placement: with balayage, the focus is on the mid-lengths and ends of the hair for a seamless, blended effect. Highlights are usually applied throughout the hair, from roots to tips, leading to a more uniform appearance;

Result: balayage offers a softer, more natural look, while highlights often create a more striking contrast between the colored strands and the natural hair color.
