BAYALAGE – SUBTLE FEMININITY WITH HAIR CHALK UK

‘Bayalage’ is a word that’s been scattered through beauty magazines and red carpet reviews for months. Celebrities and fashion-lovers have really taken to the bayalage hair trend.

What is bayalage?

Well, its translation from French is ‘to sweep’ or ‘to paint’. It’s achieved not with foils (too regimented) but with natural sweeping motions, achieving a look which is pretty but not artificial. You can lighten or darken the sections of your hair you want changed – it’s up to you (and with hair chalk you don’t need to worry about bleaching). It gives a sun kissed, feminine finish that’s great for the transition between summer and autumn.
