Balayage has been around since the 1970s. This beloved French technique is more popular now than ever before. It’s one of the most requested services in our Melbourne salon. Here is a bit of professional wisdom about the trending hair technique, .
Balayage, when translated from French, means “to sweep” or “to paint”. This is a freehand colouring technique to achieve a very blended, natural-looking finish. It avoids harsh placement of bleach, which can result in a “stripey” look. When applied by our expert stylists, it also hides the lines of regrowth. This means you can wait longer between visits.
During a balayage session, a stylist will paint onto the surface of your hair strands. The bleach or colour is not fully saturated into the hair section until the tips of the strands. This creates an ultra-smooth, blended area of colour. Stylists refer to it as a freehand technique because foils are not used to separate the highlighted areas.
How Long Does It Take to Apply?
Balayage can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours to apply. The time that your session takes will depend on the area of hair being processed. If you’re going for a few small highlights, it will take much less time than an overall, triple-process look. Call Agent Hue to talk to one of our friendly stylists. They can give you an estimate of how long it might take to achieve your dream look.
