What Is Balayage?

Balayage involves hand-painting soft highlights throughout your hair to accentuate your hairstyle and facial features. Taken from the French, meaning “to sweep”, it is a free-hand technique which allows us to place your highlights exactly where they are needed.  It will give your hair a beautiful natural look as though you have been out in the sun all day.  The effect given is subtler than that achieved with conventional foil highlights because the colour is painted free-hand and there are no hard lines. 

Is Balayage Suitable For All Hair Colours?

Indeed! Balayage can look fabulous on all shades of blonde, brown, red, auburn or even grey hair.  In addition to working with natural shades such as popular blondes and warm caramel tones, you could use balayage to try out fashion colours such as on-trend pastel shades.

How Are My Balayage Highlights Applied?

Our team of skilful hair colour technicians at Coco Hair will paint the balayage colour directly onto your hair, applying it more finely closer to your roots and with bolder brush strokes towards the tips.  This freehand technique allows us to highlight areas where the sun would naturally lift your colour if you were on holiday, giving it a finish that’s subtle and also multidimensional.

How Long Will My Balayage Appointment Take at Coco Hair?

The length of your appointment will depend on whether we are adding balayage throughout your hair or just a few highlights, for example to frame your face.  We will be able to advise you on how long it will take if you book in for a complimentary consultation  Please note, if your hair is damaged, your appointment will take longer as we will work with you to improve the condition of your hair so it is ready for the colouring process.
