Balayage is a technique we use to color hair. It is a buildable color, this means it can take up to 4 applications/ 4 visits to achieve a desired color result.
Balayage is a paintable technique. applied to the hair using a special bleach that encapsulates the active ingredients in a clay so it does not dry out and loose it’s strength. Using a regular bleach will dry on the hair, crumble and not be as effective.
If your hair is dark you will need your base lightened at the same appointment, sometimes this can be done before or after the balayage process, it just depends on your base/root color. If it is not your natural color and colored dark it is considered corrective color as we need to lift that color off of your hair first.
Remember the process of corrective color does not change with each technique it still takes many steps to achieve a desired color if it is a drastic change for your hair and will cost at least $70 an hour.
If your hair has all over color and you have root regrowth it needs to have some corrective work done in order to get a workable palette for a balayage.
As you can see in this picture it is a distinct color difference, in order to do a balayage service we consider this corrective work.
