What’s the difference between partial balayage and full balayage?

This is a question I hear all the time. The most important thing to remember with balayage is that it exists somewhere along a spectrum.

Tips for trendy partial balayage hairstyles

There is no one-size-fits-all balayage solution, as the technique can be adapted to suit all hair types and colors. However, some general tips for creating partial balayage hairstyles include:

  • Start by sectioning the hair into four equal parts, then clip three of them away from the area you will be working on.
  • Take a small section of hair at the front of your head and divide it into three parts. Begin lightening the midsection of this section with a highlighting product, then use a brush to blend the color up towards the roots and down towards the ends.
  • Repeat this process until you have lightened all of the desired sections, then allow the hair to air dry or use a blow dryer on a low setting to set the color.
  • Once the hair is completely dry, unclip the remaining sections and style as desired.
