What are balayage wicks?
Balayage is the coloring technique that sweeps the famous. They are very subtle and natural wicks that are applied randomly to create different points of light throughout the hair.
They do not apply from the root So you avoid creating an unsightly effect with hair growth. The result is a very subtle gradient that is not achieved with other coloring techniques such as Californians.
They are ideal for any type of hair, not only for blonde and chestnut hair. In fact, more and more are brunettes They resort to this technique to give life to their mane and illuminate the face with cold or caramel tones.

Why make balayage wicks ?: Advantages
- Very natural result. If it's done right, by not dyeing from the root, the wicks merge with our natural base. In fact, one of the strong points of this coloring technique is the naturalness of the result.
- Avoid wicks that are too straight and defined. One of the great dangers of traditional wicks, which are made with silver paper, is that they end up looking like stripes and nothing natural. With the balayage technique, the wicks are applied superficially at strategic points to give luminosity to hair and face.
- Easy maintenance with fewer tweaks. When not applied at the root, they blur with our natural color and do not need too many tweaks.
- Light up the face. If done correctly, the wicks should be applied on strategic points of the mane that bring light to the face.
- Does not rust. Silver paper, which is used to make traditional wicks, produces oxidation and damages the hair. However, as we have already pointed out, these wicks not only do not use silver paper, but also do not stain the hair, they only perform small and subtle movements to make blurred wicks at strategic points.
- Avoid overcoloration. With other types of colorations, such as Californian wicks, the lower part of the mane ended up completely fading on more than one occasion. In addition, to return to your natural color you can run the risk of reapplying another dye. With the balayage this does not happen because they blur with the natural color of the hair.
- For all hair. As we have already said, not only do blondes or light chestnuts look good. In fact, one of the latest trends is the application of balayage in cold tones or caramel in brunettes.
- Give movement to the mane. Balayage finish brings movement and nuances to the hair
- Hide the gray hair. When applied at strategic points, they are ideal to cover little gray hair with small blurred and natural applications that, in addition, will bring shine to the mane.
- Ideal for when we want to flee from previous colorations. They are perfect if you want to grow your hair to leave behind a previous color.
