If you haven’t heard of balayage, we aren’t quite sure where you have been hiding for the past few years.

low maintenance

As much as we love a full on platinum blonde,  the frequent upkeep is not ideal for every client. Incorporating your natural colour in the root means grow out is much less noticeable and touch-ups are not needed as often.

universally flattering 

There are a number of hair colours which can be hard to pull off, but balayage is not one of them! The blend of colour from root to tip means that any hue can be spruced up with a little bit (or a lot) of lightening.

less damage 

Since the colour is concentrated only on a portion of the hair, you aren’t doing as much damage as a full head bleach out. That being said, the right products are still key to revitalizing your locks after any processing!

If you want to go for something natural, balayage can be super subtle. If you want a lot more impact, the transition from root to ends can also be made very dramatic. The wonderful thing about this hair colouring technique is that each client can have their own spin on it!

We can tell from our bookings that you are still loving this hair colour trend as much a we are! If you’re ready to brighten up a bit for spring, we would love to help.
