First of all, let’s get started about “what is balayage and highlights?”

what is the difference between highlights and balayage?

At first, Balayage is making some highlights on the hair surface with using brush to make natural looked streaks.

After leaving it for a while to bleach, wash the hair,and then apply a darker color to the whole hair than the color of the balayage.


Highlighting is a method of creating a partially bright part in bleach or color on the base color to give a three-dimensional effect .

Highlighted hair stands out better than the base area, and it seems the whole hair color becomes a bright tone. Adding highlights make the hair move and light impression.

Basically, it is a feature that we add highlights on the hair surface and around the face. Using the technique that is Picking up a small amount of the hair by a comb which is called “weaving” can color partially. By doing that, the hair will be a natural looked than coloring whole hair, so its looks is not going to be too flashy in an office. The merit of the highlight is not only that can make three-dimentions, you can keep the hair-style for a long time, as the difference between the hair and the roots will not be noticeable even if the hair will grow. also, you can have the style with more hair move by combining with the "low light" which puts the dark color partially. Besides, it can be combined with the gradation color which is the technique of making gradationed hair color.
