Best Balayage Maintenance


In recent years, many celebrities and style icons have been seen with subtly lightened ends on their hair, resulting in intense levels of depth and dimension that looks both effortless and put-together. So, what is this popular hair technique? Balayage! Balayage is a French word that literally means sweeping. Balayage is the careful hair colour painting technique that creates a gradual highlight in the hair. This freehand technique, like painting, is used to create a natural sun-kissed look. The famous natural graduation of colour that balayage is known for is achieved by free-hand painting techniques that are developed with proper training. Balayage hair treatment is most commonly seen with a lighter colour such as blonde, but a much more creative way to balayage is with brown, pink or even blue.

Balayage vs. Ombre

Balayage is often confused with ombre. While it is similar, there are some differences that result in a different look when you walk out of the salon. The best part about balayage? It offers an elevated style with low maintenance. Generally, Balayage is not done by using foils. The lightener is applied on the surface of the hair and not saturating each section to the ends of each hair strain. Both styles reduce the need for frequent colour upkeep, since the roots of the hair are kept slightly darker – typically your natural hair colour – with gradual lightening towards the end.

Some of our clients only come for a touch up once or twice a year, but you can choose how often you come based on your preferences and hair type. Our team of certified colour experts are here to transform your hair, applying a nice and distinctive balayage that works well with your skin tone in a nice and relaxing environment right in the heart of downtown Toronto.
