BALAYAGE

The Celebrity Favourite

If you’re looking for beachy, casual waves with almost-faded, natural highlights - the kind that adorn the heads of Jessica Alba, Alessandra Ambrosio and Halle Berry - Balayage is the way to go. The artistically distressed chic ease of this style, is the reason behind its popularity. The simple, sensual and unstructured style of this hair colour, lends it the grace that enhances the hair instantly. This technique is a freehand style of colouring hair that, unlike traditional highlighting, is not uniform or defined. It does not require foils and even sectioning of the hair. Stylists simply pick random sections - some thick and some thin - and then highlight them against the flat board of their palms.

How it all began...

Developed in the 1970s, the balayage technique is creeping its way back up the popularity charts and is currently a favourite among the A-listers. Why? Because in stark contrast to regular highlighting it gives you a soft, natural look. Since it is supposed to look like it is a beach-kissed, slow-fade style of colour, it doesn’t require multiple trips to the salon. In fact, balayage tends to look better as it fades, leaving careless streaks of colour in its slow demise. It suits below-the-shoulder length hair the best, even though women with pixie cuts and shorter crops have tried the effect to mixed success.

Post colour care

Any and every hair type, needs to be cared for. Make sure you use products recommended for coloured hair, post your colour treatment. Appropriate care ensures that the hair remains frizz-free, which in turns ensures that the colour on your hair is enhanced. We love the L'oréal Profiber Conditioning mask to pamper our locks over the weekends.

Tip: Don’t forget to invest in a good in-salon hair treatment post colour to keep your strands in good health.
