What is Balayage?
Balayage is for all hair types and hair colours. Balayage allows for a sun-kissed, natural looking hair colour, with softer, less noticeable re-growth.
It’s a beautiful technique that can be dialed up or down, perfectly personalised depending on the desired end finish. The technique uses patches of light and shade to create multiple dimensions to the colour.
The depth of balayage can vary so much from a ‘few small highlights that will only take a matter of minutes to a full on, triple process look that can take hours.
The principal idea being less is more when creating a natural, multi-tonal finish.
Choose between a soft freehand application or a strong and striking money piece achieved with extra lift through foils and babylights.
COLOUR YOUR HAIR? HERE’S OUR HOT TIPS FOR KEEPING IT HEALTHY.
New products and trends, better colouring methods, never-seen-before bright hues - en jay has some great tips about the hottest shades, healthy-hair tips and plans for the future.
The key to beautiful, coloured hair:
1. Wash your hair less frequently
The more you wash, the quicker your colour will fade – it really is as simple as that. So buy back some time in your everyday routine and skip the frequent washing. The best way to care for your colour is to wash only twice or thrice a week – then soak up oil from those roots with dry shampoo when needed.
2. Pick the right shampoo
There’s a reason why colour protective shampoo was invented. Whilst some regular shampoos can wash away your colour and accelerate colour fade, formulas like Redkens Colour Extend Shampoo actually work to protect your colour, helping to keep your pastel, vivid or metallic shade looking beautiful and vibrant. Whatever you do, choose a “low sulphate” or ''sulpphate free'' shampoo as it will help to wash out less colour from your hair.
3. Heat Protection
They work - In particular, the ingredients in heat protection sprays reduce heat damage, most likely by evening out how the hair heats up. However, they can’t insulate your hair from most of the damage, so you still need to minimise your hair’s exposure to heat styling.
4. Make time for masks
Did we mention condition? If you’ve been on a colour break and become slack about masking, now’s the time to get back on the wagon. Just 5-10 minutes of masking twice a week can add a super dose of healing nourishment that helps to repair damage, increase shine – and naturally, keep that colour going stronger for longer.
As well as learning about the huge product range and the benefits for different hair types, we firmly believe in the importance of in-salon treatments in keeping coloured hair healthy.
“The ‘PH BONDER’, Redken’s version of the popular ‘Olaplex’, helps maintain the hair’s natural ph level to ensure shiny, strong hair without breakage,” we say. “We add it to our colour formula and apply to the hair after the colour is rinsed out. We also have a take-home product to maintain your hair’s natural ph level in between salon visits.”
