Bayalage Highlights

Hope you’re all enjoying the holidays. I can’t believe it’s already NYE!

The crisp, cold air of winter always makes me crave a good hair blowout at least once during the season, so a few days before Christmas I decided to do just that. I also settled on defining my hair with some highlights. I’m not one to visit the hair salon every month, especially since I leave my hair in its natural state most of the time – I’m a low-maintenance kind of gal. That’s when my stylist introduced bayalage highlights to me, and I have to admit, I’m in LOVE. This has been around for a couple of years (I had no idea!) and it’s amazing because it creates the most natural looking results. Believe me when I say, it’s as if my hair was sun kissed. My stylist/colorist explained that this is more of a painting pattern where the highlights would be applied away from my roots, which is exactly what I wanted.

I washed my hair yesterday so my lovely curls have come out to play again – and I’m happy to say that it still looks great in this texture. I’m definitely a balayage convert! I especially love it because I do my best to limit the amount of chemicals in my hair. The less touch-ups I have to do, the better.

I hear that bayalage isn’t as effective on dark hair, but I wasn’t going for a bold highlight. I wanted that natural look, and if you’re interested in similar results, this is perfect for you.

What do you guys think of bayalage?
