Beautiful Balayage Benefits

Balayage as a hair colouring technique is a really popular trend in our hair salon at present. In this blog post we would like to talk about what balayage is, how it works and what to expect from your balayage hair colour in Sawtry.

What Is Balayage?

Balayage is the French word for ‘sweeping’. It is a hair colour technique where a hairdresser uses their freehand hairdressing skills to sweep colour on your hair. The mid-lengths and ends of your hair will be coloured lighter than your roots. You will notice a gradual and stunning transition from your dark roots to the lighter tips. The gradual change in colour creates a gorgeous soft look for your hair.

Why Get Balayage Instead of Highlights In Sawtry?

Balayage allows us to create a customisable colour for your hair. There are lots more choices of colours and styles than simple highlights. Whether you are looking to create than sun-kissed hair looks or would like to try out a new bolder colour, balayage is the perfect option for you. Balayage provides a great canvas for your hairdresser to create the colours and tones of your choice.

Balayage Lasts Longer

While balayage takes longer to create than more simple highlights, the results are worth the wait. The longevity of your bespoke balayage colour will really last. Our clients that have balayage often notice that their colour lasts up to 2 months, or longer in some cases. We would recommend that you have a toner every 2-3 weeks to keep your hair looking vibrant. Make sure you still keep up your regular hair trims to keep your locks in great condition too.

Balayage Works For Greys

Some clients are concerned that because they have grey or white hair, they cannot have balayage in Sawtry. However, this is not the case at all. We apply a root colour to your hair first, and this colours are lighter hair. We then use the lightener on the mid-lengths and ends of your hair to perfectly blend the hair colour beautifully.
