Pastel Balayage at Plaza Hair Salon

28th September 2022

“I wanted to try the pastel balayage for a long time, but the result it's more than I ever dreamed of. It's fantastic! Mai you are a hair magician.”

Many of our clients are not satisfied with just one color on their hair and hence decide to get their locks colored in various shades. Pastel hair is still trending in 2022 and we are sure it will never go out of style. The most stylish way to add these soft tones to your natural or colored hair is to opt for a pastel balayage. Pastel balayage means individually hand-painted strands of hair in various pastel shades.  After a safe lightening process, we gloss and tone the hair with soft and sweet pastel highlights.

Whimsical Pastel Balayage at Plaza Hair Salon

We colored our client’s long streaks with a fantastic fusion of platinum blonde, purple and pink shades. The whimsical sweeps of icy rose gold and vibrant purple strands over the natural brown base create a stunning contrast. Pastel balayage looks terrific on a brown or blonde natural base. We pre-lightened the mid-lengths, then washed out the pre-lightener, hand painted the blonde, pink and purple toners on top, and finished it with a clear gaze. The long, flowing rose gold, purple and blonde wavy locks seamlessly blend, resulting in a sophisticated look. Balayage is low-maintenance, only needing touchups every 4-6 months, but keeping the pastel tones shiny is high-maintenance, needing a hair toning or glossing treatment every few weeks.

Tips for Pastel Balayage Maintenance

The soft and subtle pastel shades tend to fade out fast, so it’s essential to know the tricks to lock their pigment down as long as possible.

Here are our tips you can follow on how to preserve your hair color for a longer time:

  • wash your hair less frequently
  • cut back on heat styling or use a heat protection spray before blow-drying, curling, or straightening
  • use products with UV filters to protect your hair from UV damage
  • use a toning shampoo or conditioner to boost the tones as they fade
  • applying hair masks can also help to maintain the colors last longer
