At Georgetown Aveda we perform three techniques that can be confusing. Here is a simple guide that will help you understand the difference between a single-color process, highlights, babylights, and balayage. Here, we will discuss each of these techniques to explain the differences.
Single-color process is also called one step. This process not only covers gray but is a color process from roots to ends.
Highlights are sectioning out pieces of hair and applying some type of lightener from root to tip to create dimension in the hair. Traditional highlights are usually created using foils. Using foil allows the lightener to penetrate deeper into the hair by conducting heat better than plastic film or open-air processing.
Balayage comes from the French word balayer meaning to sweep. It is a free-hand painting highlights onto the hair, creating a soft and natural blended, sun-kissed color gradation of lightness towards the ends. Simply put, balayage is a highlighting technique and not a color. No foils are used. Due to its simplicity and stunning results, balayage is one of the most popular highlighting methods being used right now.
Babylights are used to create dimension in the hair by lightening small sections of hair. The difference, though, lies in the amount of hair in each section, and the separation between sections. By coloring only micro-strands of hair, the babylights technique results in subtle, naturally Sunkissed looking hair.
