1, What is balayage?
Balayage is a hair colouring technique where colour is painted onto the hair, giving a more natural, blended highlight effect. It will give your colour tons of dimension, and a gorgeous, sun-kissed look. The results are long-lasting, as there is no harsh line as your hair grows out.
2, How long does it last?
Balayage is a low maintenance technique that seamlessly blends highlights into a darker base colour, resulting in a beautiful blend of lighter and darker hair. Usually, it keeps your natural root colour, so regrowth will not appear as a stark line. You may wish to touch up the colour every 3-6 months to keep its fresh appearance.
3, Is balayage still in style in 2021?
Yes! Balayage is a technique that gives your hair a beautiful blend of colours, and seamless transition from darker to lighter hair. The results are timeless. Moreover, blonde balayage is still the most popular choice in 2021.
4, Does it damage my hair?
This will depend on your current hair colour level and the chosen colour level. The bigger the difference in colour, the more your hair may become damaged. Thankfully, we utilize bond builders to help reduce the chemical damage by more than 90%.
5, How much does a balayage cost?
The cost will depend on the length and colour of your hair, and how many applications are necessary to achieve the colour you desire. The price starts at $250 and up.
6, How many sessions does it take?
The number of sessions will depend on the colour of your hair before the appointment, and the difference in level between your current and desired shade. Typically, a lighter colour will require more time and sessions to achieve with a darker base colour.
7, Is getting a balayage worth it? Why is it so expensive?
Yes, we believe getting a balayage is worth the cost. This service can be more expensive because it requires more time and skill to achieve the result, but balayage requires less maintenance for clients compared to a full head application.
8, What’s better: balayage or highlights?
Balayage colouring requires less maintenance than Highlights as the roots grow in. Balayage will let you keep your natural roots, with a gradual transition to a lighter colour.
9, What should I do before a balayage appointment?
Before your appointment, have a specific colour and style in mind that you would like to achieve, for instance, ashy, brown or blonde balayage. Preferably bring an image of the desired look to show your stylist. This will help your stylist have a clear vision of what you are looking for.
10, Does it look good on straight hair?
Yes, it can certainly look great on straight hair. However, wavy hair will highlight the new dimension of your hair better.
11, How do you fix a brassy balayage?
We provide toning services that will help neutralize any unwanted colour pigment, and leave you with a more neutral colour.
12, How can I help my balayage colour last longer?
Use good quality hair products that are specific to your hair type and colour. Use medium heat when drying your hair, to keep its condition healthy.
