Balayage has taken the world by storm, creating the most natural, sun-kissed look and low maintenance, seamless grow-out. It’s a subtle highlighting technique, which originated in France in the seventies. Our highly skilled team specialises in balayage, and they will ensure you leave our salon feeling amazing, with a natural and multi-toned finish to your locks.

The technique

Balayage is applied freehand rather than using tools like foiling and caps. The colour is added in a sweeping motion to build soft contrast into the hair and create a gradual, gentle colour fade, from root to tip.

As everyone’s hair is different, you will need to book an initial 15-minute consultation, where one of our experienced stylists will find out about the colour effect you’re looking to achieve. Then they will advise you how long you need for your balayage appointment.

What’s the difference between Balayage and Ombre?

Ombre is more of a style, whereas Balayage is a colouring technique. Ombre is applied as a horizontal colour, typically done with full, horizontal saturation of the section and then blended upwards. Balayage is a more vertical colouring, hand-painted onto the surface of the hair, taking smaller sections at a time.

  • What is the difference between balayage and highlights?

    Balayage differs to highlights as the balayage technique involves paining the colour on from the mid-length of the hair, to the ends. Highlights on the other hand has colour added from the roots to the ends.
