Balayage has been around for a while, but this timeless technique is creeping its way back into being one of the most popular hair color requests in salons today. Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair color – similar to what nature gives us as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea is that less is more when creating soft, natural looks. It is applied on the surface and not saturated through the section until the very tips, otherwise you would have a streak of color that isn’t vey soft at all. What sets Balayage apart is that it’s totally bespoke to you! A good balayage expert will be able to place the color to suit your skin tone, so it’ll look amazing and really light up your features. You are welcome and encouraged to bring photos of your desired look, and we will always do a full consultation at the beginning of your service.
