Balayage Haircolor in Utah

What is Balayage:
The word “balayage” is French and means scanning or sweeping. In hair color, the term balayage refers to a technique of freehand painting or “sweeping” the brush across the hair to create a natural highlight effect, rather than using foils or caps. The balayage technique is not new, it has been done for years, but it has become increasingly popular in our area recently because more celebrities are wearing this type of highlight.

Benefits for You:
Natural-Looking Effect
Balayage creates soft, sun-kissed highlights that look like you spent the summer frolicking on the beach.

Low Maintenance
Balayage highlights grow out naturally, without developing a noticeable and obvious re-growth.

On Trend
Balayage is popular and on trend, so you can stay current without having too much commitment. The perfect thing about balayage is that it can be as classic or as trendy as you like. You can do a more subtle effect, or more obvious effect. You can do balayage with natural colors, or with more extreme fashion colors. The technique is current, but it can work with your own personal style.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Balayage?
Highlights that are hand-painted onto the hair for a natural-looking, sun-kissed effect.

What is the difference between Balayage and foil highlights?
The biggest difference is the result. Foils offer a more uniform, defined highlight. With Balayage, highlights are randomly placed for a more natural-looking effect.

Will Balayage highlights damage my hair?
Not if your stylist is trained in the technique and using the correct products for the job. L’Oreal Professionnel lightening products are developed with conditioning agents that leave your hair in great condition.

Balayage looks easy. Can I do it myself?
Although the technique looks very simple when you watch it being done, there is actually a lot of skill and practice involved in mastering the technique. Controlling the amount of product used, where to place the product on the strand, and how to section the hair to get the desired effect out of your placement are all things that only a trained Balayage stylist should do.

How much maintenance does Balayage require?
It varies by clients but many can go 3-4 months between appointments since there is no obvious regrowth with Balayage.

Is Balayage just for blondes?
No! Balayage is perfect for brunettes and redheads who want a subtle, sun-kissed effect.

What's the hubbub with INOA? I'm sure many of you have at least heard of this color by now. INOA permanent haircolor was developed by L’Oreal Professionnel and introduced in 2010. This color is revolutionary because there is no ammonia. What does that mean to you? This means there is no strong odor, no tingling sensation at the scalp, and hair is left in better condition than when you came in. It protects the hair's natural lipids keeping them intact, which will keep your hair's natural sheen.

We have also noticed for our coarser hair clients, it has softened their hair texture making it easier for them to style. All salons or stylists that use or want to use INOA have to be trained and certified. After using this color for more than a year, I have noticed that our INOA clients' hair has less fading; they come back with beautiful color!

The main technology behind INOA is a new revolutionary oil delivery system that propels the colorants into the hair instead of traditional permanent color, where ammonia swells open the hair to allow the color to penetrate into the hair. What is in it for you? Soft, shiny, no odor, long lasting luxurious color.
