    What is Balayage?

    As many of you know, Balayage is a trendy color option these days. It’s all around you, in social media, magazine covers, and on your friends’ hair.

    Balayage  is French for a color technique (developed in the 1900’s) that involves hair painting, wherein the hair is painted free style in subtler streaks which make the color appear more natural. In lighter colors the effect is a natural sun-kissed look. However, any color can be used with this technique for incorporating subtle, natural looking color into the hair.


    Why You Want To Try Balayage Hair Extensions?

    Personal Look

    One of the reasons to love Balayage is that it creates a very individual look. The technique may be the same, but it looks different and unique on each person who wears it. Blonde hair takes on sun bright tones, light brown takes on caramel or whatever colors you want to create for your signature look. Whether your hair is wavy, curly or straight, Balayage can give you an amazing new look.


    Easy To Apply

    Our Balayage hair extensions are easy to apply, within minutes you can have this beautiful new look. It’s safer for your hair, as you don’t have to color your own hair to achieve the look. You can change to different colors at will, without damage, money and time spent altering your own hair color. You can also enjoy “seasonal color” which means when the season changes, you can change out your extensions to reflect the current colors of the season. What a great way to stay current and enjoy damage free hair color!


    Different Tones
    With balayage hair extensions, you can try many different hair colors without dying your own hair. So we can go extremely ashy or extremely warm. It's really up to you and what you would prefer. We have very soft looks and that’s what we aim for. Balayage is supposed to be very soft and natural, so by adding these different tones of blonde we really tailor it to each and every client individually.


    Color Stay
    Although seasons are changing balayage is definitely here to stay. Depending on which season we are in you can change your balayage to suit your mood. You can go super bright, super beachy, super surfer girl or you could even go towards more of the fall and winter times where you want to add in your reds, your red violets, your deeper nicer richer reds, caramels. Any tone that you decide to go with for your balayage is going to look great no matter which season we're in.  


     Always Look Good

    You’ll enjoy the varied styles you can achieve with these extensions: updos, ponies, down and sleek, soft curls….the sky is the limit. With Balayage, there is no hard line of demarcation in the color, so it never looks like you have “roots,” you are in charge of the look.
    You can put your hair up, you can leave it down and no matter what you do it will bring  that extra flare that you're looking for. And it literally goes with any kind of make-up style that you want. Whether you want the smoky eye look for a night out, or if you want a simple day look. This makes it another great reason to have it as a low maintenance look. That's why a lot of people are definitely digging the balayage hair extensions.
