What Is Balayage Hair Colour?

Balayage is the best hair colouring technique for those looking for a more natural and lasting hair colour finish. Balayage is a French term which means "to sweep or paint the hair". Your ahead hair colour expert will paint the highlights on by hand, paying close attention to where the sun might lift hair naturally to give you a fabulous naturally sun-kissed style. The bespoke results will be less uniform and more natural-looking than traditional foil highlight colour techniques.

As this method of hair colour is softest at the root area and bolder towards the ends of the hair, you will not need to visit us quite as regularly for a hair colour service. You should ask your ahead for her & for him stylist for recommendations on the best shampoo and conditioner products, and combine these with regular haircuts or glossing treatments

Is Balayage Suitable For My Brunette Hair?

Yes! Balayage will look stunning on all shades of brunette, red, blondes, auburn or even silvery grey hair. Balayage can also be used to incorporate fashion colours into your head, such as trendy pastel hair colours like pink, lilacs and blues. 

How Long Will My Balayage Appointment Take?

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

Please note : if your hair has been damaged previously, your appointment will take longer as we will need to improve the condition of your hair so that it is not further damaged by the colouring process. This can be discussed at your consultation.

What Is The Difference Between Ombré and Balayage Hair Colour?

Balayage is a more subtle hair colouring technique than Ombré, where a two tone contrasting colour technique is used. Ombré gives colour that is dark at the roots and gradually becomes lighter towards the tips in a defined way, whereas balayage is more multi-dimensional.

There are so many types of balayage, including babylights, root melt, root stretching, colour melt or free-hand balayage highlights. If you’ve seen a balayage hair colour look you love, bring in the picture and we can discuss how to make it work for you!

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

How Do I look After My Balayage Hair Colour?

One of our favourite things about Balayage is that it is relatively low maintenance – your root regrowth will be less obvious with balayage than with conventional hair colour techniques such as foils. To maintain your balayage look at it’s best we recommend that you visit ahead salons in Wirral every 8-12 weeks. We can also recommend some fantastic professional quality hair colour care products to keep your hair colour fresh and vibrant.
