Are We Still Balayage Specialists?
We answer your most pressing questions with Colour Director Monique McMahon:
What is Balayage?
Let us explain! To balayage is to apply colour in a sweeping motion. That’s all it is... Balayage is not a colour and it’s not colour on the ends and it’s not dark roots and blonde ends.
It’s a technique, not a colour and it is a technique we still love today!
What is the difference between Balayage, Freehand and Handpainting?Have you heard your colourist use the words "Freehand, balayage" or "hand painting" ? It's all the same thing! Call it what you want it, the technique was born in Paris in the ’70s. Balayage is perfect to create that French girl hair. Beautiful to showcase buttery blondes or cool bronde hair.
What hair colour types are best for the Balayage Technique ?
Everyone can wear balayage! It creates perfect glossy brunettes and will give you the perfect base to gloss with a striking copper for red hair beauties! Whilst balayage is often associated with long hair - short + medium hair will also benefit from this technique for the sweeping colour contrast that we love so much.
So on your next salon visit, when you ask for balayage, you now know that this can mean many different colours, not just one!
