Balayage & Ombré

Balayage Hair Colour in Durham at Steven Scarr Hairdressing Salon, Coxhoe

the top festival hairstyles for 2019 from steven scarr hair salon in durhamOne of the most popular techniques over recent years is balayage. It offers a low maintenance hair colour with greater flexibility between colour changes because the colour doesn’t ‘grow out’ and cause an obvious re-growth line like conventional highlighting techniques.

Balayage is a free-hand technique used to ‘paint’ or ‘sweep’ hair colour directly onto the hair meaning colour can be placed exactly where you want it. However, balayage hair colour now acts as an umbrella for a range of popular colouring techniques including root stretch, root melts, colour melting and colour bleeds to name but a few! Not to mention highlights, lowlights and baby lights! 

We really are experts when it comes to the balayage hair colour trend at Steven Scarr hairdressing salon in Coxhoe, Durham and can tailor a  bespoke look perfect for you.

*Please note – you will need to pop into the salon at least 48 hours before any hair colour appointment so we can carry out a quick skin test.

What’s The Difference Between Balayage & Ombré? 

Balayage hair colour is more subtle than ombré, with a few sections of highlights added through your roots giving a denser colour towards the tips of your hair. By contrast, ombré is a more defined two-tone effect, with darker roots becoming lighter towards the ends.

Root Shadowing, Root Stretching & Colour Melts

Root Shadowing, Root Stretching & Colour Melts at steven scarr hair salon durhamColour melting & root stretch colours are all on-trend colouring techniques similar to balayage. Your skilled Steven Scarr colour technician can gently ‘blend’ or ‘melt’ away from the root so there are no harsh lines between the different shades. 

We can place discreet, well placed highlights throughout the hair to achieve a multi-dimensional colour, growing lighter towards the ends of your hair. From a warm blonde with rich, chocolaty brunette balayage tones to a or red colour melt, or a root stretch with highlights we are sure to have a hair colour you’ll love.

Love my hair being done at Steven Scarr's salon. The interior of the salon always looks fantastic. Friendly and very knowledgeable staff. Professional service and an absolutely endless choice of hair colours to pick from. Good choice of products to purchase if you want to buy anything. I love the Kerastase range. 5* Back washes : the massage chairs are unreal... a nice treat. Would definately recommend the salon.
