What Is Balayage?

Balayage is a hair colouring technique where our skilled colourists hand-paint highlights throughout your hair to create a sun-kissed look. Typically, your roots will be left your natural hair colour and this will blend into bolder, lighter hair colour towards the ends of the hair.

The top balayage trend is blonde balayage paired with money piece highlights, but we can create any balayage colour for you. Whichever effect you choose, balayage is a great low-maintenance hair colour. Having soft colour at the roots means you don't need to visit the hair salon as regularly as with a permanent all-over hair colour.

Balayage Vs Ombré

A lot of clients ask us what's the difference between balayage and ombré? At Lockonego, we're here to answer your questions about hair! The difference between balayage and ombré can be subtle, as they both create colours that are darker at the roots and lighter at the tips of the hair.

The main difference is that balayage usually gives a subtle 'highlighted' effect throughout the hair, whereas ombré creates a more two-tone effect. But, the main similarity is that both are beautiful! Whichever look you choose, your colourist can create a bespoke hair colour suited to you.

Highlights are more full coverage than balayage, and are used to lighten the hair all over. For a dramatically lighter hair colour, ask for a full head or highlights. Ask for a half head of highlights for a more "naturally" lightened colour. We apply babylights for a super subtle blonde look.

At Lockonego in Chelsea, we are blonde hair specialists which means we can create beautiful blonde hair colours for you using our fabulous Wella hair colour range. Whether you would like chunky highlights or fine highlights, our expert colour technicians will create the effect that you desire.
