What is Balayage?

One of the hottest hair trends at the moment is Balayage! Balayage is a hair colouring technique designed to create very natural-looking “sun-kissed” highlights that grow out without the development of a noticeable regrowth or root.

This method of coloring originated in Paris in the 1970s. The name “Balayage” is French for “to sweep,” a reference to the way in which the colour is applied.

The appeal? You can achieve so many different effects. From soft and natural, to strong and chunky, these low maintenance highlights are so incredibly popular for the busy woman. People want to look fashionable and feel good about their appearance without all the fuss. We don’t always have the time to be in the salon every few weeks for a touch up on that ever present regrowth.

Performing the process can be time consuming. It requires a steady hand and a good eye. Unlike foils, hair that has been subjected to Balayage simply looks sun-kissed. The highlights can be subtle or more intense, depending on the client.

For that total “has-she-or-hasn't-she?” look, Balayage is the seamlessness that leaves hair looking like you've been on the beach. It's soft and pretty and so far, is the most natural of all looks. It can illuminate your features and soften your skin tones.

This… is the beauty of Balayage!
