The Truth about Balayage
one of the new hottest trends right now in the beauty industry. Balayage is a
free hand technique where the color is hand painted rather than using the
traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques. This technique allows for
sun-kissed (NOT SUPER LIGHT) natural hair color, and a softer re-growth line.
(Because balayage is not fully saturating the hair strand going from dark to
light cannot always be done in one appointment.)
hand painted on to the surface of the hair, softer towards the root area not
saturated through the section until the ends towards the tips of the hair. This
creates the soft, natural look that will have a softer re-growth line that will
not be as noticeable as it grows out.
anything there are stages to hair color. Everyone has different underlying
dark or medium brown hair has a red undertone.
dark blonde and medium blonde hair has an orange undertone.
to pale blonde has a yellow undertone.
lighten your hair, your natural undertone is going to show through the color we
has limitations. Here is what we can do for you as a stylist:
1. We can bleach or lighten your
hair to the palest color we can achieve (sometimes that may not be as light as
you are hoping).
2. If the underlying pigments pulls through we
can tone your hair with... green to cancel red, blue to cancel orange, and
violet to cancel yellow. (Sometimes this makes the hair a bit darker if an ash
tone is needed, muddy looking, or a little tinged to a red, green, or violet
color. Note: toner only lasts 4-6 weeks, after that, you are back to your
natural undertones... so keep coming back for your toner)
3. We can seal in your color with a
treatment (this helps with fade-out, keeping your color long lasting, vibrant
What you can do at home to maintain
1. Throw out your cheap products!!
(Cheap products contain harsh chemicals that eat away at the molecules in your
color. Why spend all that money, just to forfeit the desired look?!)
2. Sun naturally lightens hair.
When your hair lightens, the natural undertones begin to pop out.
3. Don't do toners on yourself
(drug store and beauty supply stores that YOU can buy color at, are not quality
products... you will do more damage than good)
5. Buy products from your stylist
(at home color treatment)... this will keep your color lasting longer and your
hair looking shinier and healthier.
6. Be patient. You cannot build a
house overnight! (Color takes time, or you will end up with damaged hair.)
All of these treatments, remedies, and color applications cost money and
require commitment. If you have high expectations for your hair, take into
account that the cost will be high as well. Your desired look, will most likely
take multiple applications, be patient... and make sure you have the finances
and time to achieve and keep up on your desired look.
We always offer consultations if
you would like a price quote or to talk with a stylist about the process.
