Is a blonde Balayage something for me too?
Have you ever wondered if a blonde Balayage would be something for you?
We get that and here’s why a Balayage is so suitable!
Balayage is actually a French word meaning ‘sweeping,’ as in to sweep on a hair lightener to create highlights. Balayage is the technique of free-hand painting highlights onto the hair, creating a soft and natural gradation of lightness towards the ends.
The advantage of a Balayage is that your hair retains its natural colour on top and along the contours, so you have an outgrowth in the treatment right from the start. (See right photo)
As a result, your Balayage will not grow out disturbingly!
Many women therefore only have their Balayage touched up 2 or 3 times a year.
You don’t need to redo the whole treatment, just have some new foils placed at the top so that the Balayage is back a bit higher in the hair.
And because the treatment is very nicely outlined in the beginning, it will therefore not grow out ugly or streaky!
Those different colour shades give your hair a bit more depth, which also makes it look fuller.
Isn't such a treatment bad for my hair?
In combination with Olaplex, it is not a problem.
There are sulphur bridges in the hair, similar to the steps of a ladder. These sulphur bridges give the hair strength. Hairdressers who do not use Olaplex can make the hair weaker and more brittle.
We do use Olaplex, which ensures that the existing sulphur bonds are protected during the colouring process and afterwards. The Olaplex mask ensures that new sulphur bonds are created again, making weak hair, even after the colouring treatment, feel better than before!
Do I choose cool or warm?
Many women wonder whether they should choose a cool or warm Balayage. During the beauty consultation, prior to the treatment, we discuss with you what your wishes are and find out what best suits your skin type.
Please do remember that a cool Balayage requires a little more maintenance at home.
Cool pigments tend to disappear from the hair during washing and styling, which is why you need to keep replenishing the cool pigments at home with toning drops or a colour mask.
