About the Process

Your stylist will section your hair first and she will start painting just the surface of your hair near the root and moving down to cover the ends of your hair in dye fully. This will take some time so you need to sit back and relax. Washing your hair and blow drying will end the process.

On black to brown balayage, highlights are softer at the root and the regrowth lines will be less noticeable. This makes this balayage a perfect low-maintenance hair trend for this season. Your hair will look stylish even ten weeks or more after your visit to our salon and you will have a gorgeous look all spring and summer.

Between two balayage it’s important to use a special shampoo once a week to keep your hair colors bright and fresh. Our suggestion is to wait three days after the coloring to wash your hair for a longer lasting hair color.
