What is balayage?
Balayage is a French colouring  was developed in France in the 1970’s. It’s a freehand technique where the colour is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques. There are many different effects from soft, natural highlights.

How it’s done
The process varies depending on the length and thickness of the hair to get the desired result. It is coloured by brush to indiviaual strands to get an amazing result.

Is it for me?
Balayage is best done on natural hair, but never fear, most of the work I do to create a balayage look is initially done with foils until the hair is ready to have only balayage. There are many different techniques that people use to create this look. If you’re seeing a colour specialist they should always be able to come up with a technique to achieve the look you desire that best suits your hair type and colour history.

The best hairstyles for balayage
Balayage is great for loose curls and wavy hair.  It even looks amazing in cute updo’s and braids.
