Is Balayage right for me?
If you have never had your hair coloured before or you are afraid of a drastic change, balayage is most definitely the best colour technique for you. If you are blonde, brown, or red, have coloured or non- coloured hair, it doesn’t matter, the balayage technique can be tailored to everyone. The choice is really between you and your colourist. Balayage works for all lengths except for very short cropped hair. A balayage is also great for colouring greys because the hairdresser will cover the few grey strands rather than colour the whole head.
Can you create Balayage at Home?
Balayage is a freehand technique best done in salon where the colour is applied by hand rather than using professional tools such as traditional foiling, meche or cap highlighting. It refers to the process of sweeping colour through the hair using a paddle. It is very subtle and natural. A professional hairdresser will be able to bespoke this technique to your hair colour, lengths and textured. They will use the perfect amount of colour to reflect your needs. To create an amazing bespoked balayage your hairdresser will use our balayage kit together with our complete portfolio of shades across our colour brands, Majirel, INOA and DIA and our new lightening range Blond Studio.
How long does Balayage last?
Balayage varies depending on which style of balayage is chosen, it averages at 8 to 14 weeks. Make sure to always talk to your colorist about the upkeep, it’s important to remember that the cut dictates the placement of the colour, so the heavier the colour application the more upkeep will be needed.
