Do you want to add some brightness to your hair but retain a natural look? Balayage could be the perfect solution for you. Balayage is a method of adding natural-looking highlights – the kind you would get after spending a day in the sun – to your hair. It’s beautiful and stylish, perfect whether you’ve never coloured your hair before, and are worried about colour being too harsh, or you’ve been colouring for a long time, but are looking for a more gentle and youthful image.

How It’s Done

Even though Balayage looks like it requires almost no work at all – just put on a bikini and head down to the beach – it requires the expertise of a hair colour specialist to get it right.

Balayage Hair Colour by VanessaWith Balayage, your colour technician works on individual sections of hair one at a time. She uses a brush to sweep colour onto the fronts of hair strands, adding movement to your hair. (The word ‘balayage’ comes from the French word for ‘sweep’.) The colour technician uses her expert knowledge to decide exactly where to place the colour. Of course, your colour technician will work with you to decide which colour to use and how narrow or chunky to make the highlighted sections.

Styling Options

Because the colour is swept lightly onto your hair, there are no harsh lines separating your highlights from your natural colour. This means that Balayage suits a wide variety of styles – straight, wavy or curly. You can change your hairstyle according to your mood without having to worry about whether the colour will work with your new style.


Balayage is a very low maintenance colour techniques. Highlights are painted on using subtle strokes, so grow out is hard to notice. You can wait much longer to refresh your colour than you can with foil highlighting. It’s perfect if you have a busy lifestyle but don’t want to choose between fashion and convenience.
