What is the difference between Balayage and Highlights? 

While both are considered highlighting techniques, traditional highlights are thin, lighter streaks of hair from root to tip. Although your mind may travel to the early 2000s when you hear the world “highlights,” recalling those thick streaks of blonde hair many celebrities and women used rock, modern highlights are thin and delicate. When done correctly, these lighter streaks of hair add dimension and depth to you natural hair, subtly complementing your existing hair color.

Balayage is a freehand highlighting technique, which requires less maintenance than traditional highlights. This technique starts at about mid-shaft, seamlessly gradating the hair from dark to light at the bottom. While highlights are more consistent, balayage is less deliberate, giving the hair a sunkissed look. 

Fun fact: did you know lemon is a natural hair lightener? It’s true! Skip the bleach and squeeze fresh lemon juice into a spray bottle with add a few drops of your favourite hair oil. Since lemon as a hair lightener is activated with heat, so be sure to spray your hair with the mixture before a walk in the sun or your next poolside session. The heat from the sun will open up the hair cuticle allowing the lemon juice to lift the color!
