What is Balayage?
Balayage is a French word that means to sweep, it's a hair colour technique that allows for a sunkissed, natural look. The ultimate goal is to create the gold reflects that the sun gives naturally to hair in summer. More natural than a full head of colour, balayage is the ideal choice when you want something subtle, or to boost the natural reflects, and give a new dimension to your hair.
This timeless technique is the most popular hair colour requested in salons today. Balayage gives a healthy looking finish that looks glossy and expensive, which can be worn subtle or bold; it’s all about the application. Its popularity comes from the fact that it is extremely low maintenance. A balayage will grow out beautifully and very naturally so you don’t get a clear regrowth line.
Is Balayage right for me?
If you have never had your hair coloured before or you are afraid of a drastic change, balayage is most definitely the best colour technique for you. If you are blonde, brown, or red, have coloured or non- coloured hair, it doesn’t matter, the balayage technique can be tailored to everyone. Balayage works for all lengths except for very short-cropped hair and is also great for colouring greys.
How long does Balayage last?
Balayage varies depending on which style of balayage is chosen, it averages at 8 to 14 weeks. Make sure to always talk to your colorist about the upkeep, it’s important to remember that the cut dictates the placement of the colour, so the heavier the colour application the more upkeep will be needed. for more information and professional opinion, please feel free to contact us.
What's the difference between Balayage and Ombré?
Balayage is a French word that means to sweep or paint; it's a highlighting technique. Ombré means to shadow, and it's a seamless gradiation from darker to lighter. People do get confused by the two but you can also combine them in a merged technique which can be very pretty and we have had some amazing results.
