Hey ladies!! This pic depicts a traditional balayage. (Hand painted, open air processing)
As you can see the hair transitions from her natural level, to a warmer lighter blonde, to lightest blonde. This is the natural transition that occurs when using the traditional balayage technique. That is what makes this look so natural. If you look at a person who's hair is naturally lightened by the sun, this same effect appears. If you are someone that does not like to see any warmth then traditional balayage is not for you. Even if you bring the balayage up in the next session there will be a slight variation of warmth, although less, it will still appear where the natural level transitions. The warmth can be disguised with a shadow root or colormelt, but then the original intent of the traditional balayage process is negated. Balayages are suppose to mimic naturally sunkissed hair. If you like the look of a balayage without the warmth then alternative options are available such as foilayage and or colormelting. Inspiration pics are great during a consultation not to mimic the look but to get an idea of what methods that I will use to get you to where your desired goal is!
