Foilyage is our Balayage at Benjamin Kyle Salon
Home of the Foilayage
Balayage is a highlighting technique which uses a specific type of lightener and an exact application. Our balayage experts will create a customized, natural-looking hair color that appears sun-kissed and effortless with the hair color soft at the roots and lightening gradually toward the ends.
At Benjamin Kyle Salon, we have a preferred method for our balayage services. We create the look of balayage using hand painting and a foil placement technique. This type of balayage is sometimes referred to as foilayage, and sometimes it's called teasy lights if we backcomb sections of hair. Call it Benjamin Kyle-ayage because that's the way we do balayage here. Why? We get the same results, the same dimension, but with more saturation. That means lighter and brighter with less development time, and it's gentler on the hair.
Foilayage Complements Everyone!
The balayage method is so popular because it looks great on every hair color. Because of the exact placement of our foils, the highlights have a way of brightening and contouring the face. It is low maintenance, meaning fewer visits to the salon for a hair color service. Plus, foilayage is not just for blondes! It can look sensational with all hair colors including bright fashion shades and pastel colors.
How is Foilayage Color Applied?
Just like balayage, foilayage creates a lived in, natural looking hair color. As hair colorists, we actually prefer the extra control we have over placement using the foils so almost all of our balayage services use the foilayage technique.
The Difference Between Foilayage & Highlights
Traditional highlights are created by selecting pieces of hair, covering it with lightener from root to tip, and wrapping in foil, resulting in brighter, noticeable pieces of color. Wrapping hair in foil keeps the lightener from drying too quickly, because once dry, the lightener stops working. Foilayage highlights are applied from midway to the tip, whereas foil highlights go from root to tip.
Instead of lightening up your hair with sweeping highlights, a reverse foilayage adds darker strands for sweeping dimension. If you're looking for a bright blonde alternative, reverse foilayage will re-introduce contrast and depth into blonde or lightened hair.
"Will Foilayage Look Good On Me?"
Yes, foilayage can work for everyone, especially if you have shoulder length hair or longer. Book a free hair consultation at Benjamin Kyle Hair Salon in Cocoa FL, where our color specialists will be able to discuss the look you desire and assess the color and condition of your hair.
