Balayage is a colouring technique that has been around for some time but it’s popularity is on the rise and there are a few good reasons why! Celebrities around the world are opting for this technique in a bid to create natural looking sunkissed locks. Balayage is a French word meaning “to sweep” or “to paint”. It’s a freehand technique that allows the stylist to create a bespoke look without any harsh or obvious regrowth.

Why Balayage and not foils?
The main reason to go or Balayage over foils is the subtlety and natural finish that can be achieved with Balayage. Foils can give an almost stripey appearance when used to create highlights where Balayage gives a softer look because it is painted on with a brush or paddleboard to create natural looking highlights and lowlights that give the hair dimension. It also means you don’t need to spend as much time on maintenance as the colour grows out so naturally.

Balayage is perfect for all hair types. If your hair is straight or curly, long or short Balayage is the technique to go for if you want a bespoke and unique colour.
