Is Balayage for You? Advice From our Balayage Exeter Experts

May 12, 2014

Balayage is a form of highlighting that’s used to create a natural, sun-kissed look, as if you've just come from the beach. It’s often seen on models and celebrities. If you are looking for Balayage Exeter you have come to the right place!

It creates a more natural appearance than traditional foil highlighting. With Balayage—the word is French for ‘sweep’— the colourist takes sections of hair one by one and then uses a brush to paint the front of strands with a sweeping motion, choosing just where to place the highlights. This method of colouring adds movement and dimension to your hair, creating a look that’s sexy as well as subtle.

The Benefits

Do want hair colour that’s on trend as well as low maintenance? If so, Balayage could be perfect for you. Because highlights are applied thinly and not bright up to the root, grow out isn't as noticeable as with foil highlighting. This means you don’t have to refresh your colour as often, so you save trips to the hairdresser.

Because the look is so subtle, it’s a great choice if you’re new to highlighting and not ready for anything too dramatic and high maintenance.

Balayage Exeter

With Balayage, you have a wide range of styling options. It’s a fabulous look for curly hair as it creates lots of dimension in your curls and a sun-kissed effect to bring you back to your childhood. It’s great for straight hair, too. You can straighten your hair without worrying about harsh colour lines. It can be used with almost any texture or length. Because colour is hand painted on, highlighted sections can range from narrow to chunky, depending on your preference and maintenance goals.

Is It Right for Everyone?

While Balayage can be used to create beautiful hairstyles, it’s not always appropriate. If you want a very noticeable colour difference, Balayage is the wrong choice. It’s designed to be subtle and isn’t suitable for highlights more than three shades lighter than your natural colour. If you're looking for an all-over lightening effect, you may be better off with Highlights.
