What is Balayage?

Balayage is a specialized hair coloring technique that originated in France in the 1970s. The term “Balayage” is derived from the French word meaning “to sweep,” which perfectly encapsulates the method. Unlike traditional foil highlighting, Balayage involves the sweeping or painting of hair color or lightener onto individual strands, creating subtle, natural-looking highlights that add depth, lightness, and dimension to the hair.

Balayage vs. Ombre and Highlights

While Balayage can achieve various results such as ombre, sombre, classic highlights, and fantasy color, it stands out as the best way to customize the depth, lightness, and dimension from the roots to the ends. In contrast, ombre involves a greater contrast between natural hair color and highlights, with a gradual blend from dark at the root to light at the mid-lengths and ends. Balayage, on the other hand, offers a seamless grow-out, allowing clients to go 3-4 months between appointments due to its customized application.

Ultra-Customized Balayage

Our Balayage highlights are the go-to choice for celebrities, models, and fashionistas who demand a personalized and exclusive hair color designed by their professional stylist. The technique allows our stylists to utilize their creativity and artistic talent to personalize the placement of each highlight for a completely customized result, contouring face shape, enhancing cut and style, and complementing complexion.

Balayage For All

Balayage is for everyone – regardless of hair texture, color shade, length, or density. It creates visual balance in the hair, leaving just enough depth and lightness. Our certified professionals can create volume, density, or an illusion of length with expertly placed highlights.

Why Balayage is Always Trending

Balayage is the perfect in-salon highlighting service for changing trends due to its flexibility. It allows for easy alteration of highlight placement or tone adjustments with the weather or trends, resulting in a natural dimension in the hair and easy grow-out.
