Balayage is French for “to sweep” or “to paint”. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour – similar to what nature gives us as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.
Balayage is applied on the surface and not saturated through the section until the very tips, otherwise you would have a streak of color that isn’t very soft at all. It can also be called a freehand technique because no foils are used to create the highlights.
Balyage is very low maintenance, looks more custom, more natural, and is a modern technique that’s much more flattering. Healthy hair is attractive hair and that’ll never go out of fashion. Balayage gives a gorgeous healthy finish that looks nature-enhanced, glossy and expensive. It can be natural or strong, whatever you want, it’s all about the application technique.
You can achieve so many different effects with Balyage – from soft, natural highlights to something strong and punky. The fact that it is so low maintenance is such a plus for women on the go. People want to look good and feel good about their appearance, but in this day and age we don’t all have the time to be in the salon every few weeks for a touch up.
It’s also a very economical way to color your hair, as you never have a solid demarcation line or regrowth, so if you can’t afford to get it done for another month it won’t look bad at all.

Our Balyage package includes a base break or root extension to soften the base of your hair, a custom free-hand lightener, a toner glaze to achieve the absolute perfect shade for you, a hair cut – and a complimentary deep conditioning treatment, customized to your particular hair’s needs.
