Hair painting is a free style highlighting technique derived from it's sister technique "balayage" which was created in Paris over a decade ago.
Using a lightener specially formulated for the art, hair painting uses a controlled variation in pressure during the application process that creates an intentional graduation of color. No two colors are the alike and the possibilities are endless with hair painting. While foiling is confined to predetermined patterns and sectioning; hair painting, gives you freedom to work with each individual's specific hair needs creating a personalized and choice result.
A trained painter uses the way the hair naturally falls to target the placement of color resulting in a softer, more natural, and fluid color. With the combination of application pressures, placement, tonal choices and the painter's own personal style, the unlimited results of hair painting are what make it unique and the most innovative color technique of it's time.
