What Is Balayage?

Balayage is the most popular hair colour technique to obtain a natural looking, long lasting & low maintenance hair colour finish. Balayage is a French term which translates as "to sweep or paint the hair". Your ubuntu hair colour expert will paint the highlights on by hand, paying attention to where the sun might naturally lift the hair to give you a gorgeous sun kissed look. The results will be completely bespoke and more natural looking than you may expect with traditional foil highlights.

We will also ask you to come in for a quick skin allergy test at least 48 hours before your hair colour appointment to ensure you will not suffer any reactions to the colours involved. 

Is Balayage Suitable For All Hair Colours?

Yes! Balayage will look stunning on all shades of blondes, brunettes, red, auburn or even silvery grey hair. In addition to working with natural hair colours, balayage can be used to try out fashionable hair colours such as pretty pastel shades.

How Long Does It Take To Create a Balayage Look?

The length of your balayage appointment will depend on whether we are adding colour throughout your hair, or just adding a few face framing highlights. Book in for a balayage consultation where our Makeover Palace colour specialists will be able to assess the condition of your hair and discuss the look that you are aiming for.

If your hair has been damaged by over processing, your appointment will take longer as we will need to improve the condition of your hair so that it is ready for the hair colouring process. 

What is The Difference Between Ombré and Balayage Hair Colour?

Ombré hair colouring produces a contrasting two-toned effect from root to tip, whereas balayage is a more subtle hair colouring technique, and only a few sections of highlights are added to your roots. Ombré hair colour is darker at the roots and gradually becomes lighter towards the tips in a defined way, whereas balayage is more of a multi-dimensional look.

How Do I Maintain My Balayage Hair Colour?

As this method of highlighting is softest at the root area and more concentrated towards the ends of the hair, you will not need to visit us quite so often for a hair colour service. To maintain your look at it’s best we recommend that you visit Makeover Palace Hair & Beauty Salon every 8-12 weeks.

You should ask your Makeover Palace colour expert for recommendations on appropriate shampoo and conditioner products, and use these together with regular treatments at our Kidlington salon.
