What is balayage?
Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour - a bonus is that it has softer, less noticeable regrowth lines.
How is it applied?
Balayage is applied on the surface and not saturated through the section until the very tips, otherwise you would have a streak of colour that isn’t very soft at all. It can be called a freehand technique because no foil is used to create the highlights.
Does it require a lot of maintenance?
Very little. It grows out beautifully and more naturally so you don’t get an obvious regrowth line and can wear it for longer between appointments. All you really need to do is protect it as you would any other colour: use colour protecting hair products, regular treatments and heat protection when styling.
What makes it timeless?
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, it’s all about the application technique.
