Balayage vs Foils

In many years as hair colorist, it's surprised me to learn that a lot of women don't really know the difference between a highlight and a lowlight, let alone the different techniques for achieving the former, arguably more popular, look. Many of my clients know the terms for the processes — namely, foils and balayage — but they don't often understand what's involved in each one. Before you come into the salon seeking high or lowlights, arm yourself with some of the basics — and a photo!
 
"Highlights" is a general term that refers to strands of hair that are lighter than the base color they're being laid upon. It's commonly believed that a highlight is blonde, but actually a highlight only refers to a color that's not as dark as the base strands. The size of the highlights, the level of lightness, the tone, and the placement are all left up to the colorist — after you've communicated the look you're going for, of course. Highlights aren't a one-size-fits-all, and neither is the way they are administered.
 
A rundown of the three main types of highlighting techniques, plus an explanation of lowlights, may help you decide what to ask for at your next color appointment.
People with thick, heavy hair, who like the look of thicker highlights with more contrast, should look into balayage. A French word meaning "to sweep," balayage actually refers to the sweeping motion produced by the brush when the colorist paints swatches of hair.
Balayage is a freehand technique in which swatches of hair are carved out from the whole head of hair and painted with a lightening agent. This is done in revolutions around the head, and each painted swatch is then covered in cling wrap, foil or left free to lighten withour you moving!
 As these highlights are less systematically placed, the resulting look is a sunkisses natural effect. I recommend it for clients looking for a casual, beachy look. Lighter tips and an almost ombré appearance help to define this look.
 
By contrast, foil highlights produce a more symmetrical head of highlights.
 For clients interested in more of an all-over blonde look, foil highlights, which are administered on top of and underneath the hair, are an excellent option. Foils can blend more with your natural base color than bayalage, resulting in a more even distribution of lightening.
Foil highlights involve sectioning off hair and weaving strands and painting them with a lightening agent before wrapping them in foil. 
In spite of some personal preference on the two techniques described above, I believe that a skilled color artist can achieve many different looks with any technique or combination of techniques. Some stylists and their clients like the look that results from getting both high and lowlights.
Unlike highlights, which are lighter than the base strands, lowlights are darker strands of color that are woven into the hair. This process typically produces depth and adds contrast when hair becomes overly light and one-dimensionally colored from being highlighted repeatedly. General oxidation and/or fading can occur from regular highlighting, which is another reason someone might opt to even things out with lowlights.
 
And, I've said it before, but it bears repeating: Always bring a photo with you to the salon. I advise clients against using technical/professional terms because it's simply not as effective as displaying a photo of the look they hope to achieve.
