BreakingThe Mold: Balayage vs. Highlights at Borne

Hey there, color rebels! At Borne, we’re all about shaking up the salon scene and empowering you with hair knowledge. Today, we’re diving into the world of balayage and highlights – two techniques that can transform your look from “meh” to “oh my!”

The Lowdown: What’s the Difference?

Balayage: It’s French for “to sweep,” and that’s exactly what we do. This freehand painting technique creates that sun-kissed, “I woke up like this” vibe. It’s not just a look; it’s an art form.

Highlights: The OG of hair color. We weave sections, wrap ’em in foils, and lighten from root to tip. It’s like giving your hair its own spotlight.

The Borne Breakdown

At Borne, we believe in transparency (in our pricing and our hair advice). So here’s the scoop:


  • Pros: Low-maintenance, natural-looking, and customized just for you.
  • Cons: Might not pack enough punch for darker hair or bold color changes.


  • Pros: Dramatic lift, works on all hair colors, and can be as warm or cool as you like.
  • Cons: Requires more frequent touch-ups and can be a bit more demanding on your locks.

Finding Your Color Soulmate

Choosing between balayage and highlights isn’t about following trends – it’s about finding what works for you. That’s why we offer personalized consultations. Book a 15-minute virtual chat or a 30-minute in-person session, and we’ll figure out your perfect color strategy together.
