Balayage is a free hand painted technique which creates the most natural blend of colour. The results are seamless blends that give you a sun kissed look. The technique originates from France and got its name from the long sweeping motions used as balayage translates to ‘sweeping.’
Your technician is able to create a natural colour or can intensify the results according to your vision. clever colour placement to enhance your features and draw the eye where we want it. (Yes colour can really do this!) Together you will decide how much of your natural root you would like to keep and how much of the hair you wish to brighten.
Balayage is popular as a low maintenance alternative to highlights, as it grows out subtly without a harsh root – we recommend a simple toner every 5-6 weeks to keep the colour looking vibrant. A balayage can then be refreshed when the lighter pieces have grown out from around the face.
This technique is suitable for all hair types, but results in colour always depends on your natural hair colour. This is something that your stylist will talk you through during your consultation.
We recommend Olaplex with all our colours especially when lightening the hair. Olaplex will protect your hair by rebuilding the bonds that are broken down during the chemical process.
