Balayage, it’s the ‘go to’ for any girl entering the salon looking for modern chic hair.

Salon Director Alisha trained for this technique in Paris and is an expert in creating the perfect look for all of her clients. We are sure you’ve heard of it but what exactly is balayage and why is it so popular in the fashion and beauty world?
What is balayage?
Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or paint. It is a highlighting technique developed in French salons in the 1970’s where the colour is hand painted on to the hair. This is skilfully done in such a way as to create a graduated natural effect.
Balayage is a freehand technique as no foils or meche is used to create the highlights. It is applied on the surface and not saturated through the section until the tips like regular foils. This allows the colourist to create depth and dimension to any hair giving an individualised, sun kissed look. It has an overall natural style with softer less noticeable regrowth lines.
Why is balayage so popular?
Balayage is a timeless, natural look for all hair types and styles. It doesn’t matter if you are blonde or brunette, red or grey, have flowing locks or a blunt bob, balayage is flattering and modern. It is very low maintenance due to the sweeping technique losing the uniform lines of regular foils. This allows you to say goodbye to dreaded regrowth!
Depending on your hair type and length, there is a specific technique used by your colourist to create the perfect balayage look for you.
What about maintenance?
A professional application of balayage can last 3-5 months as it is blended naturally and matched to your skin and hair tones. It grows out naturally without a solid regrowth line. This is always an advantage in the beauty world!
It is kept looking chic and shiny when looked after with the right shampoo and treatments. Here at Alisha Anjaiya we recommend BC Shwarzkopf Oil Miracle Shampoo, followed by the Oil Miracle Gold Shimmer treatment. With the special ingredient Marula Oil, which gives mazing shine, these products are suitable for all hair types. They moisturise and protect for deep hair replenishment.
Balayage is here to stay, it will give your hair an enhanced, glossy, multi-dimensional look with an expensive finish that will never go out of fashion.
