Balayage Results

Why can’t I have the colour I want in one appointment?

Balayage, the art of hand-painted hair colouring, is celebrated for its natural allure. However, reaching your desired balayage look often requires more than a single salon visit. At Becky B Hair, we appreciate the nuanced path to perfection that balayage demands.

Dark Dyes and Delays

Previous dark hair dyes can be a hurdle. These pigments can resist the transition to bright, blonde shades, necessitating a thoughtful approach and rushing the process risks compromising hair health.

Balayage excellence often unfolds over multiple appointments. We collaborate with you to set practical expectations and develop a timeline that respects your hair’s resilience.

Find out everything you need to know about balayage.

What is Balayage?

Balayage is a popular hair colouring technique in the hairdressing industry right now. It’s all about creating a natural and sun-kissed look. What’s cool about balayage is that it gives hair a soft and blended appearance, almost like how our hair naturally lightens in the sun. We use various methods to do this, like freehand painting, where we literally paint the colour onto your hair to make it look really natural. We can also use foils to add some extra precision to the process. Another technique, “teasy lights” involves teasing your hair before applying colour to create a soft, diffused effect. With balayage, there are so many ways to make your hair look unique and beautiful!

How long does a Balayage appointment take?

A balayage appointment typically lasts for about three hours, but it’s essential to know that the time can vary depending on a few factors. If you’re making a significant change, like going from very dark to very light hair, or if your hair has had previous colour treatments like colour build-up or box colour, it may take a lot longer. Balayage is a gradual process, and sometimes, the first appointment may not give you the exact look you’re after. It often gets better over time as your hair lightens and the colours blend naturally. So, patience is key when it comes to achieving that stunning balayage result!

How long does Balayage last?

Balayage is a permanent change to your hair colour, meaning it won’t wash out or disappear over time. However, it’s important to note that lighter shades in your balayage may naturally fade to brassy tones after about a month, especially without the use of special maintenance shampoos. Additionally, if the base colour applied during your balayage appointment is darker than your natural hair colour, you may start to notice a noticeable regrowth line in about 4 to 8 weeks as your natural hair grows out. This regrowth can be managed with touch-up appointments to maintain the seamless, blended look of your balayage.

Are highlights and balayage the same thing?

Balayage and highlights are distinct hair colouring techniques. Balayage creates a gentle and gradual transition from light to dark, mimicking the natural way hair lightens in the sun. It’s like an artful sweep of colour that adds depth and dimension to your hair. On the other hand, highlights involve selecting specific pieces of hair to add brightness, creating contrast with your base colour. These two techniques can actually work together to achieve a striking effect known as the “money piece,” where bright highlights are strategically placed to frame your face and make a bold statement within your balayage look. So, while balayage provides that overall soft and blended appearance, highlights are like bright accents that can enhance the entire look.

Does Balayage cause loss or damage to your hair?

It’s important to know that all hair colouring processes, whether it’s highlights, balayage, or any other technique, can cause some level of damage to your hair. However, the key to minimising this damage lies in the expertise of professional and well-trained stylists. These professionals carefully select and use high-quality products that are less harsh on your hair, helping to achieve the desired results while protecting its health as much as possible. So, while some damage may occur, experienced stylists prioritise the well-being of your hair, striving to strike a balance between achieving your desired look and maintaining the integrity of your locks.

Does Balayage fade?

Hair colour, no matter how vibrant or beautifully done, will naturally fade over time due to various factors like washing, exposure to the sun, and regular wear and tear. However, there’s good news: you can extend the life of your colour and keep it looking fresh by using maintenance shampoos and conditioners specifically designed for coloured hair. These specialised products help to lock in the colour molecules and protect your hair from fading, allowing you to enjoy your beautiful hue for longer periods and maintain that stunning, just-out-of-the-salon look.
