Balayage a hair techinique that has been around for a while is coming back around and is one of the more popular hair color requests found in hair salons today. Models and A-listers are wearing it and we are seeing Balayage on the red carpets and catwalks.  At JC’s Funky Hair Ranch, we specialize in Balayage.

Balayage comes to us from France and means to sweep or paint. This type of treatment allows the hair to receive a natural look like you had when you were a kid. It provides a softer, natural look with less noticeable regrowth lines. At JC’s Funky Hair Ranch we apply Balayage without foil or meche and what is known as a free hand technique. By not using foil or meche we decrease the streak of color in the hair allowing the hair to look soft. The Balayage is applied on the surface of the hair to the very tips of the hair but isn’t saturated through the section.

Balayage doesn’t require much maintenance since the growth appears more natural and you don’t get a regrowth line; which allows the client to wear it longer before the next appointment. You use the same shampoo and conditioner to protect the color. When styling you would use the same treatments and heat protection as you would with any other color treatment.

Balayage works on dark and light hair color and works on almost all lengths of hair and it creates a gorgeous natural finish. We do not recommend Balayage for short cropped hair. At JC’s Funky Hair Ranch we will work with you to create the perfect color choice. Whether you want to try out a cool, warm or neutral color; we will work to create the perfect combination that will bring out the best.

This timeless look is low maintenance, appears more natural and is a trendy and modern technique that is very flattering. At JC’s Funky Hair Salon our expert stylists will be able to help you find the best color that matches your skin tone and will truly magnify your beautiful personality. Whether you are looking for expensive, natural, polished, glossy or strong, Balayage is a great technique that will allow you to get the look you want!
