Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour, similar to what nature gives us as children with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Balayage is bespoke. A colourist skilled in balayage will look at your face and place the lights to perfectly flatter and light your features. The stylist can also place the colour wherever suits the way you wear your hair. Normally a full head takes 45 mins or so to apply.
It's low maintenance, looks more bespoke, more natural, and is a modern technique that’s much more flattering. Healthy hair is attractive hair and that’ll never go out of fashion. Balayage gives a gorgeous healthy finish that looks nature-enhanced, glossy and expensive. It can be natural or strong, whatever you want, and it’s all about the application technique.
You’ll have to invest time and money in hair treatments. You’ll have to spend more time styling your strands.
