How To Get Balayage

Balayage at Red Hair Salons in Hastings, Rye and Battle

We have all heard about the latest trend by now, but what exactly is balayage and how do you get it?  Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour – similar to what nature gives us as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.

How Do I Get Balayage Hair Colour?

Balayage is applied on the surface of the hair to give a soft colour. Very often it is applied freehand so we can vary the shade.  The shades are painted onto the hair in vertical sections, becoming gradually lighter towards the ends of the hair. 

Why Is Balayage So Popular?

Balayage is totally bespoke to you! Our balayage experts at Red Hair Salons in Hastings, Rye and Battle can place the colour to suit your skin tone, so it’ll look amazing and really light up your features.  It is also a wonderfully low maintenance look so there is no need to worry too much about your root regrowth showing. 

Does Balayage Need Lots Of Maintenance?

Very little. Balayage grows out beautifully and more naturally so you don’t get an obvious regrowth line and you can wear it for longer between appointments. All you really need to do is protect it as you would any other colour: use a colour protection shampoo and conditioner, regular treatments and heat protection when styling.

It works on both light and dark hair and is suitable for all hair types. However, it looks best on mid-length to long hair, rather than on short hair.  Balayage gives a gorgeous healthy finish that looks natural, glossy and expensive. It can look natural or bold – whatever you want – it’s all about the application technique.
