The French word Balayage translates as “to sweep” or “to paint”. It’s a French hair colouring technique in which the colour is hand painted onto the hair, rather than using foiling or cap techniques. Balayage can be applied on both dark and lighthair and gives a natural blending effect that seamlessly melts from one colour to another. As the colour doesn’t start at the roots, the effect is natural and sun-kissed, yet low maintenance as the colour doesn’t need to be reapplied as regularly as other techniques.
Balayage is popular because it can be used to create a wide range of colour effects. By strategically freehand painting the hair, our team of senior stylists can draw attention to or away from certain features of your face. And because of the hand-applied nature of the technique, you can be sure that no one else has the exact same hair colour as you.
Balayage is also particularly desirable for lovers of on-trend hair styles who prefer minimal hair maintenance or a high contrast of colour.
