What is Balayage Hair Color?
Balayage, stemming from the French "balayer," the verb to sweep, and it's not just for blondes anymore. The balayage or handpainted look remains one of the most in-demand hair color techniques because the results are both glamorous and versatile at the same time.
Balayage Handpainting creates natural looking highlights that are more subtle than foil highlights.
The application technique is different than foil highlights although both use a brush. The type of lightener used is also different with balayage. In balayage, the artist paints each section of hair as desired as compared to foil highlights where lightener is stroked on each section from root to tip. If you've tried both, you'll notice the shade of your highlights get a different, richer result with balayage.

When you wrap your balayage with foil, you get foilyage. What's the point? Some people love the natural look of their balayage but want to see a touch more blonde. As soon as lightener is applied to your hair, it begins lifting the color. As soon as it dries, it's done. By wrapping hair in foil creates a little heat and extends the dry time, resulting in that extra lift for brighter highlights.
