Root stretch & Balayage

It has so many names, balayage, hand painted, foiled, ombré balayage, meshes, babylights, highlighted, it's even called tortoise shell and ecaille, whatever, I love doing them all!

In these techniques, it's you as colorist who decides where the lightning will fall through the hair, so you can really create a personalized hair color.
If you manage to balance your colors well, you can be sure that even when the new growth starts coming through, the hair and color will still look natural, as I'll always make sure my base color will blend with the new growth.
 Its a strange sight to have a contrasting new growth in a root stretch.
