“My hair lost its glow, so I decided to make a change and have a chestnut balayage at Plaza Hair Salon. I am very satisfied with the result.”

Whether you have long or short hair and you want a bold change, balayage is the right choice. Unlike the old traditional methods, balayage is a French modern technique where the color is freehand applied without using foils or caps. At Plaza Hair Salon we have a great range of color combinations that our clients can choose to get a modern look with discreet transitions.
