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.
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.
