Balayage 101

Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or paint. In terms of hair it is a freehand colouring technique that provides a blended and natural look with no obvious regrowth lines. Balayage creates a multi-tonal and youthful look by allowing your stylist to strategically place light and dark pieces to create dimension. The freehand approach allows your stylist to customize in ways that compliment you as an individual. Creating a multi-tonal, layered balayage can take some time but when done correctly you can extend your time between services. Often, only a few baby lights around your face and a global gloss and shine are all that is required to keep the look fresh between balayage appointments.
Balayage works on light, dark, long, short, curly or straight hair. Your stylist can create a subtle or bold look. The ability to personalize this color service and its healthy and natural looking results have made balayage one of our most requested services.
