Do you want to add some brightness to your hair but retain a natural look? Balayage could be the perfect solution for you. Balayage is a method of adding natural-looking highlights – the kind you would get after spending a day in the sun – to your hair. It’s beautiful and stylish, perfect whether you’ve never coloured your hair before, and are worried about colour being too harsh, or you’ve been colouring for a long time, but are looking for a more gentle and youthful image.

Even though Balayage looks like it requires almost no work at all – just put on a bikini and head down to the beach – it requires the expertise of a hair colour specialist to get it right.

With Balayage, your colour technician works on individual sections of hair one at a time. She uses a brush to sweep colour onto the fronts of hair strands, adding movement to your hair. (The word ‘balayage’ comes from the French word for ‘sweep’.) The colour technician uses her expert knowledge to decide exactly where to place the colour. Of course, your colour technician will work with you to decide which colour to use and how narrow or chunky to make the highlighted sections.

Because the colour is swept lightly onto your hair, there are no harsh lines separating your highlights from your natural colour. This means that Balayage suits a wide variety of styles – straight, wavy or curly. You can change your hairstyle according to your mood without having to worry about whether the colour will work with your new style.

Balayage is a very low maintenance colour techniques. Highlights are painted on using subtle strokes, so grow out is hard to notice. You can wait much longer to refresh your colour than you can with foil highlighting. It’s perfect if you have a busy lifestyle but don’t want to choose between fashion and convenience. If you’d like to learn more about Balayage and find out if it’s right for you, come to our hair salon in Exeter for a consultation with one of our hair colour specialists.

Choosing Your Colour

Find Your Perfect Shade
Balayage adds colour to your hair in a way which looks natural and effortless. Therefore it is best to choose a colour which is no more than 3 shades lighter than your natural hair.

Cool, Pink or Blue Undertones

Create a beachy, sun kissed look with ash, champagne, or baby blonde. Alternatively, silvery or platinum shades also work well with cool skin tones and avoid leaving you looking washed out. For those with a darker base colour, strawberry blondes and light browns will create a natural look.

Warm, Olive or Yellow Undertones

A golden, caramel, or honey coloured balayage will add warmth to your hair and bring out your skin's natural radiance. For darker brunettes, rich browns such as chestnut and mahogany will add beautiful depth and texture to your current hair colour.

What to Expect at Your Appointment

We know that everyone is unique and that you will usually want something a little different. So, if you are new to The Hair Boutique, we will always book a consultation appointment prior to your colour service to ensure that we are giving you our very best service and that we fully understand the look you want to achieve. Sometimes getting your colour may take more than one appointment and we will always advise you of this at your consultation.

We will also give you a full breakdown of the price before booking anything. Should you wish to go ahead you can of course do that, or you may want to have a think about it, the choice is yours and we want you to feel comfortable and happy before you make an appointment with us.

At your colour service appointment, your stylist will review your customer records and discuss this with you to make sure that your hair colour goals are still the same.

All of our stylists are fully trained to use highly regarded Goldwell products, and will use the relevant shades to achieve your desired look.

If we are lightening your hair then your stylist will use a toner to finish the look and remove the unwanted warm and brassy tones. We only use Goldwell toners and your stylist will be fully trained with the latest range, so they will choose the exact toner to suit your needs.

Your stylist may recommend treatments to help with the condition of your hair. If we are using lightener then we will invariably recommend using Olaplex to maintain the strength and condition during the bleaching process.

We will always dry and style your hair to ensure you leave our salon looking and feeling amazing.

Your stylist will give you advice on how to maintain your look at home and may also recommend products to help your colour stay fresh. A home hair program is often an essential part of keeping your colour looking the same as the day you left the salon.
