Sweeping hair has been around for a while, but it still remains a strong celebrity favorite. Everyone from Khloe Kardashian, Gigi Hadid and Chrissy Teigen sport the color, which is a more natural way to lighten your locks than the standard highlights we all liked.

What is Scanning?

So, what exactly is it? Sweeping is the highlighting of the hair that leaves your new tones looking naturally sunkissed and beautiful. Instead of coloring some strands of hair from root to tip, hairdressers choose cuts that would naturally lighten in the sun and paint them freehand, like those around your face, in the mid-lengths and ends. And besides, you will not get questionable re-growth at the root, as each tint wick is painted from a quarter of the length rather than from the root, so your bayalage style is guaranteed 100 days after your treatment.

Sweep against Shadow

It can be quite difficult to distinguish between scanning and shading because both involve lighter ends, darker roots, and a mixture somewhere in between. However, they are very different. With Shadow, your barber will paint the dye on the tips, or even if you prefer the color to start, but it will not be mixed in the same way as with the sweep and you will still have two distinctive shades, a dark section and a light section. They are both low maintenance and easy to grow, but the overall look tends to have a more natural finish.

How long does it take?

The treatment can last between one hour and four hours, it depends entirely on the length, the texture and the thickness of your hair. Once you have been for a consultation, you will have a better idea of ​​what you can expect.
