Balayage vs Foilyage - Which one should I get?


Let's start by first understanding the difference between an Balayage and a Foilyage.


What is a Balayage hair color style?

Balayage hair color is a hair technique initially starting in France, Hairstylists apply hair coloring by a sweeping technique painting on your hair. Inspiring hair stylists transform into artists creating truly unique looks by not following the rules of normal highlights and applying color in straight lines. Once the hair is painted it is allowed to air dry to achieve the penetration necessary for an amazing look.


The styling effect allows for less needed maintenance since a Balayage does not follow highlighted hair lines like regular highlights. A Balayage can be applied to any color hair, however, the best effects will be seen by blondes, brown hair and redheads.


What is a Foilyage hair color style?

Foilyage is a hair technique similar to the Balayage, Hairstylists apply hair coloring by a sweeping technique, painting on your hair. Then like traditional hair highlights, sections of hair are wrapped in foil. Once all hair sections are wrapped, heat is applied, causing the overall hair color to penetrating deeper into the hair to lighten hair further, amplifying the lifting-effect of the highlights.   Whenever you are out on the beach, shopping in the Gables or just out and about and you see a celebrity or just someone in passing with a bold blonde balayage its likely a Foilyage.


The styling effect allows for less needed maintenance since a Foilyage like a Balayage does not follow highlighted hair lines like regular highlights.


If you are looking for a Balayage with a lighter blonde look or have brunette hair, then you will need a Foilyage allowing the extra help of foil and heat. A balayage is air dried allowing the hair to process evenly. After the Stylist paints the hair and wraps it in foil, this allows the hair dye to fully penetrate hair all around, then finished off with heat. This technique it perfect if you want that famous South Florida beach blonde hair look or if your hair is very dark and you want a dramatic color change.
