Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. ‘It’s a freehand hair colouring technique that gives a really blended natural look with no harsh or obvious regrowth lines.

Balayage allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour, similar to what nature gives us as children, with softer, less noticeable re-growth. The principal idea being less is more when creating a natural, multi-tonal finish.

The technique uses patches of light and shade to create multiple dimensions to the colour.  It is quite different to traditional highlights because no foil is used and the colour is painted on freehand.  The finished result is ‘less uniform than typical highlights. If you’ve ever been worried about having stripey colour , balayage is a sure way to avoid that harsh contrast between colours. Balayage works for all colours but ‘the only thing is it won’t cover grey hair. It will only help blend in the grey to disguise it so if you want full coverage for greys it might not be the right choice for you.
