At Johnny Rodriguez The Salon®, we believe everyone should love their hair. Your love for your hair is why we offer premier hair care services, including cuts, color, treatments, balayage, and reverse balayage. If you've ever considered a reverse balayage, are wondering what it is, or want to know the difference between a reverse balayage and a traditional balayage, keep reading.
A reverse balayage is a hair coloring technique that stylists can perform to add depth and visual interest to your hair. Your stylist will add depth back into your roots by using a darker shade and hand painting it onto your hair, letting your hair's natural highlights and any added highlights pop more, creating a beautiful effect that makes your blonde strands stand out. The reverse balayage is a subtle effect that looks great with your naturally lighter hair, allowing you to mix up your look without making drastic changes to your hair.
Your reverse balayage will require touch-ups every 6-8 weeks. Touch-ups are most important if the color you and your stylist choose for your reverse balayage is much darker than your natural shade. Discuss with your stylist how often you should get a touch-up, and schedule them in advance, so you don't miss one.
Both the balayage and reverse balayage are designed to create a multidimensional look to the hair, but they achieve this goal differently. A balayage can add lighter strands to create highlights and visual interest for people with darker hair colors. Meanwhile, someone with a naturally lighter hair color may decide to get a reverse balayage, which adds some darkness and depth back into the hair to achieve a similar effect.
Which type of balayage you get will usually depend on your natural hair color and what effect you are trying to achieve. Both are low-maintenance styles, making them a great option for people just starting to experiment with having their hair colored.
A balayage offers a more subtle effect and less maintenance than traditional hair color. While traditional hair color may involve lightening and coloring all of your hair, a balayage involves lightening specific strands to give your hair a multidimensional appearance. A balayage gives your strands a sun-kissed appearance and helps to illuminate your face. The balayage and reverse balayage are lower maintenance than traditional hair color, so they may be preferred by those who don't have time in their schedule for frequent touch-ups.
