What is Balayage Hair Colour?

Balayage is the most popular hair colour technique to obtain a more natural and lasting hair colour finish. Balayage is increasingly popular with clients who desire a low maintenance, sunkissed look.

Balayage is a French term meaning “to sweep”, your colour technician hand paints the highlights on in a sweeping motion, paying attention to where the sun might lift hair naturally. The bespoke results will be less uniform and more natural-looking than traditional foil highlights.

As this method of highlighting is softest at the root area and more bold towards the ends of the hair, maintenance is low, providing an appropriate shampoo and conditioner is used together with regular treatments. Call us today at our Bishop’s Stortford salon and schedule a complimentary consultation.

Is Balayage Suitable For My Hair Colour?

Balayage can look beautiful on all shades of blonde, brown, red, auburn or even grey hair. In addition to working with natural hair colour shades such as honey blondes and warm brunettes, you could also use balayage to try out fashion hair colours such as bright colours or on-trend pastel shades.

How Is Balayage Applied?

The expert hair colour technicians at Tisdalls Hair Salon will paint your chosen balayage colour directly onto your hair, applying it lightly closer to your roots and with bolder strokes towards the ends of your hair. This freehand painting technique allows us to highlight the parts of your hair where the sun would naturally lift your hair colour during the summer, giving it a stunning, subtle finish.

How Long Will My Balayage Appointment Take?

The length of your appointment will depend on whether we are adding balayage hair colour throughout your hair or just adding in a few face framing highlights. Book in for a consultation at our Bishop’s Stortford hair salon, where we will be able to assess your hair and discuss with you the look that you want.

Please note, if your hair is damaged, your appointment will take longer as we will work with you to improve the condition of your hair so that it is ready for the colouring process.
