Balayage is a bespoke service designed to give the perfect natural sun kissed hair colour that looks beautiful and effortless.
What is balayage?
A french colour technique meaning ‘to sweep’ or ‘to paint’. The balayage trend is here to stay and constantly evolving with freehand techniques applied by hand rather than traditional foil techniques.
Whether you are looking for a delicate caramel blend or a creamy blonde balayage, your hair colour specialist will help you find your dream shade to compliment your skin tone and features.
A thorough consultation will allow us to discuss your hair goals and develop a plan for you.
Highlights, sometimes referred to as Foils, can brighten up your base colour and add dimension to your hair, creating movement, depth and shine. Highlights can also accentuate your haircut or assist in adding volume to fine locks.
With all the right tones for your skin colour, your hair colour specialist can strategically place highlights throughout your hair creating an all-over shimmer, or a brighter face frame, drawing attention to your individual features.
During your consultation, your colourist can help you determine whether you need a few foils around the face or a full head for maximum lightening.
Single process hair colouring is quite simply, an all over colour. We offer two options – permanent and semi/demi permanent.
A semi-permanent is a low maintenance colour, giving you a subtle change without the commitment. The colour will gradually fade over time, as the colour sits on the outside of the hair shaft, rather than penetrating it.
Permanent colour (also known as a tint) is a longer-lasting colour optimised for colour changes and grey hair coverage. It grows out of the hair, leaving a regrowth so touch-ups are essential for ongoing maintenance.
From creamy blondes to platinum perfection, a scalp bleach is the ultimate blonding service that gives a beautiful, clean blonde from roots to ends.
Our hair colour specialists are trained in the latest techniques, using the highest quality products designed to keep your hair in optimal condition throughout the process and once you leave the salon.
Finding the perfect tone of blonde with your own unique style, is our specialty. A commitment to your scalp bleach will be needed however, as regular maintenance is required along with hair-type specific home care to maintain the integrity of your hair.
A major colour transformation is a journey. You have a dream destination, but often it will take a few stops along the way to get there. Your hair is no different.
Your colourist will be your guide, explaining exactly what’s needed along the way, in order to get you to your desired colour.
Most colour corrections may need a series of conditioning treatments and interim colours, ensuring the health and integrity of your hair, through the correction process. Often more than one visit is required to achieve your dream result.
