Balayage, or "ombré hair," is a trend that came, slayed, and never left! Some of the most popular celebs who jumped on the bandwagon were Khloé Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Victoria Secret Model Alessandra Ambrosio, to name a few. At Minque Hair, we are renowned for our wide range of beautifully-blended balayage clip-in extensions. We have 12 shades of seamless pieces to choose from, ensuring we have a match for everyone!
What Exactly Is Balayage Hair?
From the French word meaning "to sweep" or "to paint," balayage highlights exude a rathersun-kissed, natural-looking colour, similar to what we had when we were kids and playing outdoors all day.
The balayage hair extensions should be very close and soft at the root leading to a thicker highlight at the ends. It should be evenly applied on the surface of the hair portion and not saturated all the way to the very tips, else you would produce a streak of colour that isn't very soft at all.
