1970s: French, literally ‘sweeping’, from balayer ‘to sweep’. A freehand technique that is used to create natural highlights.
At Limoz Logli Hair & Beauty we are obsessed with Balayage as it produces that sun-kissed natural looking hair colour that nature gave us as children. No matter how dramatic the result you will automatically rid yourself of your regrowth lines and instead have softer, less noticeable roots.
It has fast become our biggest colour technique, and we are not surprised especially when it means little maintenance for clients.
Take Victoria Secret models for example, they all have in common that tousled beach wave look but you may not notice that they ALL pretty all much have balayage, just different spectrums of colour and depth.
VICTORIA SECRETS HAIR
Our philosophy at Limoz Logli is less is more when creating soft, natural looks. Which is why we suggest using your base colour to start, and not lifting it too far out of your natural shade range. You can definitely be bolder with your colour by taking it through the ends of your hair and around your hair line. This not only works to frame the face, but it really gives the impression the whole hair is lighter.
Balayage for Blondes
Tip: Ask for super fine Balayage Highlights with focus around front hair line. This will frame the face beautifully and add to the beach babe glow.
Balayage for Brunettes
Tip: Stay as true to your base colour at the root, this way you can play with the lightness through the ends.
Balayage for Short Hair
Tip: It is normal to get your hair coloured followed by your cut at the salon. But by booking your trim beforehand,we can work specifically your length and shape, and reduces the risk of chopping off the pretty, lighter ends.
