Balayage was made for curls—the hand-crafting technique allows you to enhance the movement of this hair texture with the eye of a painter. Highlights aren’t just for girls with straight strands, curly girls can get in on the fun as well. While the process is a bit different, balayage for naturally curly hair is equally as gorgeous.
The method itself is just like balayage, applied to each curl with a free-hand painting technique. This ensures that the highlights look naturally sun-kissed, accentuate movement and definition, and grow out without an obvious line of demarcation. Using a free-hand technique allows your hairdresser to create a custom color just for you and your type of curl.
