Highlights Balayage


Importance of Balayage Highlighting

Balayage is one of the popular styling techniques that avoid using foils. In this technique, your colorist would hand paint the color directly into your hair to create a natural, blended, sun-kissed color. Although Balayage has a soft effect, it allows your colorist to take more control of it, which is essential to create hues inspired by blended drinks such as brown ale and raspberry bourbon.

Modern Art of Hair is known for the best highlights and Balayage in Astoria, Queens. Apart from versatility, our balayage is loved by clients as it not only looks effortless but also relatively easier to maintain as compared to traditional highlights. Whereas traditional highlights may require clients to get a touch-up every six weeks, you stretch the time with Balayage to 12 weeks and longer.
