Some of Australia's best hair salons can be found in Melbourne. So it's no surprise that this is also where you'll find some of the best balayage colour technicians.
Balayage is a highly specialised colouring technique, that requires much training. That's because it is so different to traditional foil highlights and all-over colour. Of course, you can get amazing effects with foils, too - it all depends what you're looking for.
Balayage is a technique that originated in Paris, and comes from the French word meaning sweep or paint. That's exactly how the technique works. The colour is painted on by hand, and the stylist must be aware of your hair texture, and the way it naturally moves.
Matching dyes to your skin tone, your colourist starts with darker shades, gradually getting lighter towards the ends of your hair. This creates a sun-kissed look, with minimal re-growth issues. It's casual, yet elegant and on-trend.
Perfect for growing out your hair, or current hair colour, balayage is suitable for most hair lengths. And it's easy maintenance, too, as you can go longer between appointments.
In and around Melbourne, balayage has been spotted on the catwalk and the street, at boho cafes and top class restaurants, and everywhere in-between. It's all about making style appear so easy and natural. And it's the perfect way to express your personality.
It's also a great way to cover grey hairs, making it suitable for all ages. And it can be as subtle or as outrageous as you wish.
As with any colouring technique, it's important to use the right products, to maintain the health and shine of your hair. Professional colourists are only too aware of this and can advise you on the best products for cleansing and conditioning your locks.
