A Balayage is a French word meaning to Paint or to sweep. It’s a hand painted technique that gives the look like you just returned from a wonderful summer vacation. It’s subtle and gives a more natural looking highlight effect.
When you come to Zealand Spa Salon, or make a phone call inquiring about a Balayage, our front desk concierge will ask you a series of questions…
- How long is your hair?
- Are you looking for a Balayage?
- Do you have pictures or an inspirational idea for your Balayage? If so, can you text or email them to us?
- What color ideas are you looking for? Is it a natural Balayage or do you want it to have some fun colors added in. Colors such as red, burgundy, caramel or whatever tone you desire.
Once you have described what you are looking for you will be booked for a consultation. The reason we do consultations ahead of the appointment is so we can all get on the same page about the expectation, the goal, the desired look and of course matching that up with the price. A balayage is a hand painting technique and a great deal of time has gone into training and technique and therefore we charge as such. Maintenance following the appointment is also discussed. Will you need a toner in four or so weeks? What might your next appointment look like? How do you want to style your hair?
Balayages are very popular right now and have taken the red carpet by storm. A balayage gives a natural sun kissed look, is low maintenance and very fashionable. Be prepared to spend at least $200.
