What is Balayage

It is the most popular highlight technique in the UK today.

The word ‘Balayage’ means to paint.

This technique is used to freehand paint highlights in to the hair producing beautiful, flowing and natural hair colour.

Freehand highlights are used to recreate the sun kissed look normally achieved from many months in the sun.

Sarah Jessica Palmer, Miranda Kerr and Gisele Bundchen are examples of this look.

This technique can be used alone or with Ombre to therefore create a soft blend from darker roots to lighter ends.

Directors Karen and Rhiannon were priveleged to attend the specialist course of celebrity stylist Jack Howard in Knightsbridge, London.
