Let’s talk a little bit about Babylights, which is another kind of foil highlighting technique.
The Baby Blonde Balayage or Californian Balayage is a foil highlighting technique applied on very thin hair strands. The hair is lightened up to several tones, using variable levels of transition.
This technique reminds us of the naturally sun-kissed hair small children usually have, hence its name. Applying this fine colouring technique is a bit more time-consuming than the usual highlights, but the result is low-maintenance and very natural-looking!
How-to: Gradually lighten up very thin hair strands, by applying the colour closer to the roots. Separate the painted hair strands with foils. It is time-consuming, we know, but the highly natural-looking result is totally worth the effort!
If you are not sure which technique to go for, bear in mind that the French Balayage is the point of departure for all the others! For example, in order to achieve a perfect Ombré Hairstyle, you need to hand-paint some fine strands of hair closer to the roots, for a more subtle transition. Moreover, each Foil Highlight technique shares the same method, the difference consisting in the foils used to separate the hair strands and their variable level of thickness.
