Balayage: Welcome

Get creative with your hair colour

For subtle, natural looking colour

Balayage is a French hair colouring technique where hair’s painted by hand, instead of your usual highlights. The results? You don’t get the same separation that you can sometimes get with conventional colouring, giving you a softer, more natural look that gradually gets lighter towards the end – perfect if you want to look like you’ve just come back from a beach holiday.

Is balayage better than highlights?

The simple answer is…it depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re happy with your hair but just want a bit more depth and dimension, balayage is perfect. It also gives you the option to experiment with colour, without having to completely commit. Less colour means less maintenance, so you don’t need to arrange a touch up every few months and it looks more natural as it starts to grow out.

What are the advantages of balayage?

One of the best things about balayage is you don’t have to stick to a set colour. Play with pastels, add some warm caramel to your curls, add a bit of ashen brown to lighten the look. All you need to do is find the right hue, you can have some fun with it as you experiment and it’s not going to take too much of a toll on your hair either. It’s win-win!
