All You Need To Know About Balayage…

VISIT THE BALAYAGE HAIR COLOUR EXPERTS AT COLLECTIONS HAIR CLUB SALON IN WEYBRIDGE 

Balayage is one of the most requested hair colours at our award-winning hair salon in Weybridge – and it’s not to difficult to understand why!

The perfect way of accentuating your hairstyle and your facial features – this is a beautiful, low-maintenance, look which adds natural-looking highlights throughout your hair. 

WHAT IS BALAYAGE HAIR COLOUR? 

Balayage is often referred to as a ‘free-hand technique‘ where we paint soft highlights throughout your hair, allowing us to put your highlights exactly where they are needed. The result? Beautiful, natural looking hair with no harsh lines. 

BABYLIGHTS AND ROOT STRETCH – ARE THEY THE SAME AS BALAYAGE?

If you’re confused about Balayage and it’s many variations – don’t panic! Your Collections Hair Club colour specialist will understand exactly what you want if you mention balayage, babylights, baby balayage, root melt, root stretch, colour melt or free-hand highlights. If you’ve seen a look you love, show the image to your colour technician so we can adapt it perfectly for you.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY BALAYAGE HAIR COLOUR APPOINTMENT?

First step? Book in for a full, free consultation at our salon in Weybridge so we can assess the condition of your hair. The health of your hair is always a priority for us. We will also ask you to come in for a quick skin test at least 48 hours before your hair colour appointment to make sure you will not suffer any reactions to the chemical processes.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO CREATE A BALAYAGE LOOK?

Your appointment will take at least two hours, depending on whether we are adding balayage throughout your hair or just to the parts of your hair we can see (half a head, for example). Bear in mind, though – if your hair is damaged, your appointment may take longer as we will work with you to improve the condition of your hair so it is ready for the colouring process.

ARE THERE ANY ‘DOWNSIDES’ TO HAVING BALAYAGE?

The great news is that this is a relatively low maintenance look – your Balayage would only need to be re-done at least 3 times a year with a 6-week colour glossing touch-up to freshen it up in between visits.

ARE THERE SIMILAR LOOKS I COULD TRY WITHOUT GOING FOR A FULL-ON BALAYAGE COLOUR?
