Balayage hair has been a popular hair colouring technique for many years and is continuing to rise in popularity. The term “balayage” comes from the French word “to sweep” or “to paint”, which accurately describes how the technique is applied. Instead of using traditional methods to apply colour evenly over the entire head, the colour is carefully put on to create a natural, sun-kissed look.

Balayage has become a go-to hair colouring option for those who want a low-maintenance, natural-looking hairstyle. Whether you’re looking to add some highlights, change your hair colour entirely, or simply update your look, balayage can help you achieve the desired result. At Cheveu Salon we can help you get your perfect balayage look. 

Advantages of Balayage Hair

  • Low Maintenance: Balayage hair requires less upkeep compared to other colouring techniques. This is because the colour is not applied evenly over the head, making the regrowth line less noticeable.
  • Customisable: Balayage hair can be tailored to your individual needs and preferences. At Cheveu Hair Salon, we can help you choose the right colour, placement, and technique to suit your face shape, skin tone, and hair type.
  • Natural Look: Balayage hair creates a more natural appearance compared to other colouring methods, as it mimics the way that hair is naturally lightened by the sun.
  • Versatile: Balayage hair can be used to achieve a range of different looks, from subtle highlights to dramatic colour changes.

How Balayage Hair is Applied

Balayage hair is a freehand colouring technique that involves the stylist applying the colour onto the hair, rather than using foils or a cap. The hair is sectioned off, and the stylist uses a brush or comb to apply the colour, sweeping it from the roots to the ends. This creates a gradual transition of colour that looks more natural and subtle.

After the colour has been applied, it is left to process and then rinsed and conditioned. The final result is a beautiful, natural-looking colour that can last for several months.

Caring for Balayage Hair

Balayage hair requires special care to maintain its beauty and longevity. To keep your balayage looking its best, it’s important to use hair products specifically designed for coloured hair and to avoid using heat styling tools too often. Regular trims and touch-ups with your stylist can also help to keep your balayage looking fresh.
