It comes from France and is called balayage one of the latest and most esteemed trends in hair styling to bleach hair with a natural effect.
Balayage (which we could translate “stroking”) consist in lighten hair locks with progressive discoloration, to recreate the natural effect of hair sun bleached.
Another great benefit of balayage is that it can be realised on hair of any colour.
This natural effect, however, requires great expertise by hair stylist both in terms of colours (dark hair will need reflections tending to red) as for exposure.
Fall season, with its explosion of colours, is an excellent opportunity to visit Pistolesi’s Salon, Hairdressers in central Florence, where you can try balayage and give light to your hair.
