Indulge is proud to feature Balayage Highlights, the French method of hand painting highlights onto dry hair. Inspired by your haircut and the shape of your head and face, our stylists create personalized patterns of color that accent your features in the most positive light. The highlights mimic the effects of natural sunlight. The results are extraordinary and a fabulous addition to any base color. Our technical process is very specific to the hair. What does this mean?
When I was taught from the best educators in the world this balayage technique, I actually had to hold my pinky finger up to have the exact angle to hold the brush and how to stroke the brush along the hair shaft (the outside layer of the hair). Different angles with the heaviness of the color or lightener can and will determine the type of brightness of the color. The technique Ombre’ is a similar technique only its positioned at the middle to the bottom of the hair which results in a lighter bottom than the top which is ultimately darker for this approach. Balayage is lighter at the top but doesn’t have the streaky effect of a foil highlight and does grow out naturally. Both of these techniques take precision and placement which you cannot get out of a box.
Our staff is trained to a high level of attention to detail in order to work with the hair and to determine where to place the color. Feel Free to call into the salon for a FREE consultation to discuss your faceshape, hair texture, and the look at that you desire to see if this technique is right for you. This look is especially beautiful on mid shoulder to longer lengths of hair.
Maintenance of balayage highlights is usually 3 – 4 times per year.
