Style differences of balayage versus highlights?

While balayage is a typically hot new look, it is applied in a freehand manner to achieve a more natural look, foiling typically involves sectioning the hair off before applying the product. (These sections can be thicker or thinner, depending on the exact look you’re trying to achieve.) The difference of a balayage is tipped toward the middle and ends of the hair when highlights are normally placed close to the scalp.
