17 Nov Why Balayage Is Worth the Money
When it comes to colouring your hair, there are many different choices out there. One of the most visually stunning options is balayage.
Balayage is a technique that involves painting graduated colour onto the hair. The result is more natural-looking than traditional highlights and less dramatic than ombre — and all around stunning.
Although balayage may seem to carry a higher price tag up front, it can easily pay for itself in the longer term. Here’s why it’s worth it to seek out a balayage specialist Sydney.
It’s Low Maintenance
Compared to other colouring options like highlights or lowlights, balayage requires less in the way of upkeep. The gradation of colour makes your hair look as though your roots have grown out a bit — in a soft, flattering, and natural way — so you can go longer between root touch-ups. You may be able to go a few months or more without returning to the salon, which saves money, time, and the health of your hair.
It’s Less Damaging
With typical highlights or all-over colour, your hair is saturated with dye or bleach. With balayage, on the other hand, colour is basically painted on your hair — usually with no foil involved. In fact, the word “balayage” itself comes from the French word for “sweeping,” which is a good way to look at it — sweeping colour on top of the hair.
Your balayage specialist Sydney will use a freehand technique to create dimensions of light and shade. This method makes it easier to avoid overlapping, which refers to putting bleach on top of bleach — a very damaging mistake that is harder to avoid while doing traditional foiled highlights.
It’s Tailored Just for You
One of the greatest advantages of balayage hair Penrith & Sydney is that your stylist will create a completely customised look. He or she will evaluate the shape of your face, the length and texture of your hair, and your skin undertones to select the perfect highlight options for you. You’ll end up with hair that has a fantastic sun-kissed appearance, not a generic colour that clearly came out of a bottle or striped highlights that look a little too uniform to be natural.
There’s a reason why this colouring technique is so popular — the end result is beautiful. It’s also come to the attention of the masses through social media, awards shows, and red carpet events. If you want hair that mimics your favorite celebrity’s, chances are, balayage will be part of that look.
Balayage Sydney may seem pricier than other options at $250 to $300 for a session. In reality, though, you get a low maintenance, trendy style that can cause less damage and require fewer trips to the salon over time. Combine these benefits with the personalisation of your service and the cost becomes even less consequential.
