Beauty Trend in Hair: Balayage

Updated: Feb 24, 2021

One of the hot beauty trends in hair is Balayage sometimes referred to as Twilighting. Do you find yourself asking what is the difference between balayage and ombre? Both are among the hottest hair trends for everyday women and celebrities alike; sporting a gradual color transition from dark to light, balayage and ombre give us low-maintenance, lived-in color.

What Is Balayage? Balayage is a French word meaning “to paint” or “to sweep.” With this style of color you see a soft, sunbathed swooping color from root to end. This is a highlighting technique not to be confused with the foiled highlighting process that is still used. At the Moment, balayage has taken over the traditional foiled highlights as the new way to brighten and lighten your hair.

We in the wig world don’t have to damage our hair while trying different trends. I for one like to use wigs as a protective style to keep my hair healthier and growing. I have two wig reviews on Balayage or Balayage “adjacent” style looks to try without the permanent commitment. Click the 1st video below to see the Sensationnal Cloud 9 Swiss lace What Lace? in "Janelle" the color Flamboyage Copper and click the 2nd video below for the Outre Melted Hairline in "Ria" color DR2/Autumn Brown. Both are synthetic fiber lace wigs with realistic looks.

Let me know what you think in the comments and thanks for stopping by. Welcome to the QLife Fam! See you soon!
