What is Balayage?

The word balayage is comes from the French and translates to "sweeping". It involves adding soft highlights to your hair in a sweeping motion to give it a beautiful natural look.  This free-hand technique allows us to place your highlights exactly where they are needed, achieving a subtler effect than that created with conventional foil highlights as we can avoid creating any hard lines in the colour.  The result is a bespoke look which can be adapted to your individual personality and style.

Balayage hair colour can look fabulous on all shades of hair including blondes, brunettes and even grey hair!  As well as working well with all natural hair colour shades, such as rich brunette or cool blonde tones, balayage is also an excellent way to try out a flash of a bright fashion colour such as an on-trend pastel shade.

What’s the Difference Between Balayage and Ombré?

Ombré (another French word which means 'to shadow') produces a more contrasting two-tone effect, usually by creating hair colour that is darker at the roots and lighter at the ends of the hair.  In contrast, balayage gives a more multi-dimensional result with hair colours hand-painted in vertical sections as if to simulate where the sun might catch the light on your hair.

There are many ways your David Youll stylist can use balayage hair colour including colour blending, root stretching, colour melt and free-hand highlights.  If you’ve seen a hair look you love, bring us in an image and we’ll adapt the look for you.

How Long Will It Take To Create Balayage Hair Colour?

The length of your amount of time taken will depend on whether you choose a full balayage colour service throughout your hair or if you are adding a few highlights, for example around your face.  Your hair may also require some preparation to achieve the final result you are aiming for. Book in for a complimentary colour consultation and we will assess your hair and be able to advise you on how long it will take to create the look you desire.
