What is Balayage Hair Colour?

Balayage provides a sun kissed natural looking hair colour that avoids a hard regrowth line. Your stylist can apply the colour directly onto the hair or as foil highlights for a bespoke look.  This on-trend hair colouring technique allows you to have a low maintenance colour that is tailor made for you.

From soft pastel balayage, to vibrant copper balayage & smoky grey hues, there is sure to be the perfect shade for you.

What shades of colour can I have with balayage?

balayage and ombre hair colours at steven scarr hair salon in coxhoe, durhamThere are a number of different hair colour shades you can pick when opting for balayage. The secret is to keep the overall result soft without noticeable regrowth lines. You can always choose to have a more daring balayage hair colour if you wish such as – deep purple with a darker root or silver-grey blending into lighter ends.

Balayage hair colour options are endless – from warm, caramel tones, golden brown shades to ashy, icy blonde hair colours – or for something more vibrant why not try a copper balayage?

What other names are balayage known by?

Babylights, ombre, root stretch and colour melting are often confused with balayage. Baby lights are really fine highlights that give the effect that your hair has been kissed by the sun while root stretching or root shadowing is where a darker shade of colour is applied to the root area and smudged down the hair to blend with the balayage highlights.

Ombre gives a more obvious blend of colour normally with a darker root fading into lighter ends. 

How should I prepare for my balayage hair colour appointment?
