Get Natural-Looking Highlights

Procedure Name: Balayage Highlights and Coloring

The Patient: Anyone looking to change and/or enhance their hair color. Balayage can used on previously highlighted hair to provide an organic, effortless look or on un-highlighted hair to give it an extra pop. A wide range of looks are available, including highlight framing, beachy highlights and more.

How It Works: Hair is first separated into panels. Each panel is separated at the root by cotton and individually covered by a plastic sheet. Highlights are then hand-painted on top of the sectioned panels. The highlights are custom placed, based on the client’s hair growth patterns and how they wear their hair. Unlike traditional highlights, most of the client’s natural hair color remains present, allowing for better grow-out results. Lowlights can also be done in the same way to provide dimension.

Risk Factors: Risk factors are far and few between, but clients should let their stylist know if they have any allergies or if they have had previous reactions to hair color.

Maintenance: Because Balayage yields natural-looking results, most clients can wait twice as long for touch-up services as compared to traditional foil highlighting.

Cost: Starts at $135.
