Balayage at Steven Scarr Hair Salon, Coxhoe, Durham

One 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.

Feeling adventurous? Why not try a take on the grey balayage hair colour trend? From deep steel grey hues to deeper, charcoal tones there are several shades of grey hair to suit you. 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.

Clients also ask for ombré and sombré colour when they visit our hairdressing salon in Coxhoe, both of which differ slightly to balayage. It’s fair to say we have the highest levels of technical hair colour expertise and creativity enabling us to deliver exceptional hair colour for each client. We can help to clarify which look you want during your complimentary hair colour consultation. Understanding your hair type, style, skin tone and lifestyle will allow our expert team to give the best hair colour advice and results.

Ombré is defined as when your hair colour gradually blends from one colour to another, while sombré is softer and more natural looking. The root colour of sombré is often left with a natural base shade and then a lighter colour is seamlessly blended towards the ends of the hair.

Highlights & Lowlights Local Durham Salons

Highlights & Lowlights

Using foils to add highlights or lowlights to hair is often regarded as one of the most natural looking hair colour techniques.

Babylights are subtle highlights that give a natural finish similar to when your hair has been kissed by the sun. Our skilled colourists can focus on the areas where the sun would typically lift your hair colour if you’ve been on holiday, giving you a natural sun-kissed look. 

The idea of balayage is usually that ‘less is more’ so we create soft, natural looks. However, the bonus of this technique is that it’s completely bespoke to you so if you want a bold look, your Steven Scarr balayage expert will help you choose the colours to suit your skin tone.
