What is Balayage?

Balayage is a French word, meaning “to sweep” or “to paint”. It is a technique for coloring hair in which the color is hand painted onto the hair to give it a natural, gradual transition with no obvious or harsh lines. Our Balayage specialists use various tones of light and dark to create multiple dimensions of color, leaving the hair with a blended, natural, sun-kissed glow, because Balayage hair coloring is a very visual technique to customize person to person, and the impression of sun-kissed hair looks great for all kinds of skin tones and gives a fresh and young look. For clients who have thinner hair, after placement of Balayage color technique, they see increased depth in the hair. Color is totally customized to your hair texture and your natural hair color, so you can be sure that no one else has the exact same color as you.
