Balayage is a French word that means to sweep. It is a hair colour technique that allows for a sunkissed and very natural look. Its ultimate goal is to create the gold reflects that the sun gives naturally to hair in summer. More natural than a full head of colour, balayage is the ideal choice when you want something subtle, or to boost the natural reflects, and give a new dimension to your hair.

This timeless technique is the most popular hair colour requested in salons today. Balayage gives a healthy looking finish that looks glossy and expensive, which can be worn subtle or bold; it’s all about the application. Its popularity comes from the fact that it is extremely low maintenance. A balayage will grow out beautifully and very naturally so you don’t get a clear regrowth line.

Nadine Nolan Hair Colour specialist at Laura Leigh says: “The beauty of balayage is that you work with the natural fall of the hair and use the natural variations of tone to create a look that is fresh and modern and totally tailored to each individual. Balayage is all about soft contrasts and gives an effortless look. Because it grows out without solid lines you won’t need to visit so often (except for a touch up to cover greys if that’s applicable…)

Natalie Ursell Senior Colourist at Laura Leigh says:
“I love balayage as it allows me to place colour more visually which means each client can receive a bespoke colour completely tailor made for them. It’s great for giving a multitonal effect whilst still looking natural, high shine.
