A Guide to: Beautiful Balayage

What is balayage and why do we love it for 2017?

A French word which literally means ‘to sweep’ or ‘paint’, whether you’ve heard the term balayage, or you’ve simply clapped eyes on someone’s beautiful balayage locks, you’re going to want to know more about this multi-tonal trend that’s taken over 2017.


First up, it’s great news for all you ladies (and long-haired lads) who don’t want to spend regular time in the salon getting your roots done. The idea behind this trendy technique is to depict a natural, sun-kissed look, which then grows out with grace – something your standard highlights may not do. And this is exactly why we love it. Low maintenance, natural-looking locks which are still sure to grab the attention of passers-by!

Achieved by taking multiple triangle sections of hair and applying the dye freehand, there’s no foil wraps involved, meaning it’s also a great time saver!


Who’s it best for?

Potentially one of the best things about balayage, is that it works beautifully on all hair types. Long or short, thick or thin, curly or straight – because it’s intended as a natural look, colours can be chosen to perfectly match your skin tone, and essentially what you’ll achieve is hair that looks like it’s been naturally lifted by the sun. We think it’s safe to say that pretty much everyone wants to look like they’ve been on holiday, right?  



You can be blonde, brunette, auburn or grey, this technique looks great on everyone, plus, even if your hair colour is less on the natural scale and you’ve gone for bright and vibrant, you’ll be pleased to know you can still achieve fabulous balayage locks no matter your chosen colour.

So don’t delay, jump aboard this popular 2017 trend and make your appointment for beautiful balayage hair – we know you won’t be disappointed!
