What Is Wet Balayage?

Wet balayage is a hair color technique technique that involves many of the same steps as traditional balayage, but it’s done on wet hair instead of dry hair. This balayage technique reduces the time spent in the salon and it produces beautiful end result!

 

Why Use Wet Balayage?

The main reason stylists prefer wet balayage vs dry balayage is for faster application times. Many stylists feel that the end result is healthier, gorgeous hair that can go several months as the hair grows out naturally.
