All About Balayage
Are you looking for the best balayage in San Diego? I’m proud to offer my clients gorgeous balayage coloring that creates depth and dimension. Balayage is a French word that means “to sweep”. This is fitting, because balayage is a technique where color is swept through the hair to create a natural flow between lighter and darker tones.
This is done on one small triangle section of hair at a time, allowing for precisely placed color to achieve just the right look. It gives the effect of natural highlights that brighten and flatter your face – it’s no wonder so many of my clients love balayage!
Benefits of Balayage Hair
There are many reasons why balayage has become so popular recently. Clients like that they can give a fresh update to their natural hair color, or play with more dramatic shades. This mimics the way highlights naturally form, so the final look is effortless and beautiful.
Some places are just well suited for the sun-kissed beauty of balayage; San Diego is definitely one of them! Balayage hair fits in perfectly here. It’s like the natural highlights you would get after time spent surfing or sunning on the beach, but with a bit more sophistication. It’s the perfect way to elevate your look without making a huge change.
One thing that tends to surprise clients is how low maintenance balayage really is. Root growth is less noticeable after balayage, and many clients are able to extend time between visits when they opt for this technique. How many times have you wished you could get another week or two out of your hair color?
We’ve all been there…overdue for a hair appointment, super busy, and hoping no one notices those roots. Imagine only needing to freshen up your color every two to three months instead of once a month! In a town like San Diego, balayage is perfect for looking great all the time, whether it’s a casual outing or an upscale event.
Balayage as Art
My favorite thing about it, though, is that balayage isn’t just a color technique – it’s an art technique. Your hair is my canvas, and together we can create a masterpiece using balayage. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy to do.
I’ve had special balayage training from DJ McGinley, L’Oréal National Artist, to perfect this skill. I also participated in the Unite Showcase at Unite Academy in 2015 with a balayage model. Successful balayage requires proper training, practice, and an artistic eye. You need an understanding of the method, as well as a feel for how the final look will present aesthetically. I’m proud to say that I have all of this to offer any clients seeking balayage in San Diego.
Balayage isn’t the only color technique I offer, though. I specialize in ombre, sunlights, and blonde hair as well. You can see examples of all of them by visiting my hair gallery. If you’re not sure what you might like, I’m happy to meet with you and help you decide. Together we will consider what would make you look and feel your best, and then I will bring that look to life!
