All about the French Balayage & Gloss

Beautiful hair in two steps

L’Oréal Professionnel has added a new step to the iconic balayage to make it even more French with a new professional touch  “à la française”– a colour technique but also a toning service, aka a gloss.


1st step: Bring on the Balayage with Blond Studio

You are going to need your hair artist’s hands! Only him can guarantee the lightening you’ve been dreaming off. Only him can master multidimensional natural-looking result.

The process starts with your colourist lightening your hair. Thanks to the Blond Studio lightening toolbox, specifically designed for creating all the blonde results you desire, your hair colourist can create from subtle highlights to more drastic balayage. A balayage is all about bringing radiance to selected sections of the hair. With the French Balayage, the emphasis is on sublte, natural-looking hues.


2nd step: Brass off with a gloss

This is then followed by the Dia Light Gloss, which can take as little as 5 to 10 minutes to make your blonde even cooler with no brassy reflects and bring shine & care to you hair. It might be a quick and easy process but the results are striking. Glossing with Dia Light, an acidic tone on tone formula is perfect to balance the hair after a lightening process and ensure an optimal closing of the cuticle. It definitely improves your hair cosmeticity, the light reflects more evenly off the hair, making the overall surface shinier and the texture softer. Hello radiant locks!

Gloss can be seen as the equivalent of a top coat over your nail polish. It adds shine and makes the hair look healthier. It’s the secret behind a unique and unforgettable French Balayage, No more brass, way more shine!

The gloss touch powered by Dia Light gives hair a sophisticated French result, thanks to its chic yet natural-looking tones that can be performed on all hair color: brunettes and blondes.


Keep your French Balayage for longer

If you love your new French Balayage, you’ll want to maintain it for as long as possible. To do so, use Vitamino Color from Serie Expert which is specifically designed to protect the colour. After shampooing, boost your colour with a CC Cream for Blondes to further protect against brassiness.
