What Is Balayage?

We can create lots of different looks with balayage, depending on the colours you choose and whether you want a bold or subtle look. Balayage is an advanced technique which allows your colour specialist to hand paint your hair for precise colour placement.  Many guests want a natural sun-kissed look or face-framing highlights which you cannot get with traditional highlights that give a more uniform look. Balayage is also low maintenance as the hair is usually darker towards the roots so your regrowth is less visible as your hair grows.

Root Shadowing & Colour Melts

Balayage has become an umbrella term for many different colouring techniques including colour melting, root stretch, root drag and colour bleeds.  These are all slightly different to balayage and tend to involve having darker roots or adding multiple shades so it looks like the colour has ‘stretched’ or ‘melted’ towards the ends of your hair. 

Red Balayage Hair Colours

We have seen a growing trend for red balayage hair colours which come in a multitude of shades from strawberry blonde colours to bright copper tones and deep plum hair shades. We can highlight your natural red hair colour or add red tones to brown, black, blonde or brunette hair.  

The Best Balayage Colours For Brunettes

Caramel toned balayage and warm, rich toffee colours offer beautiful balayage results for brunettes. Chat with your experienced Hoop colourist who will look at your skin tone and lifestyle before suggesting the best looks for you.

Our Top Blonde Balayage Picks

Blonde balayage is the most asked for hair colour in our Clacton salon and it’s clear to see why! Honey blonde balayage, cool platinum blonde hues and sun-kissed highlights are all major hair colour trends.  Our colourists can advise you on how to keep your balayage looking fresh and recommend the best professional products to reduce brassiness and unwanted golden tones in blonde hair.

Ombré V Balayage

Not sure what the difference is between ombré and balayage.  With ombré hair colouring, you tend to see a more definite demarcation between the two colours used in your hair - almost a two-tone effect, whereas balayage tends to be more natural and sun-kissed.  Sombré is another top colour trend but is less obvious than ombre. It offers a softer, more gradual shading between hair colours.

Is Balayage The Same as Highlights?


Balayage is a French hair colouring technique where the colour is hand-painted onto the hair to create natural-looking, sun-kissed highlights. Unlike traditional highlights, balayage creates a softer, more blended effect with less noticeable regrowth lines.

Can Balayage Be Done On All Colours & Lengths?


Yes, balayage can be customised for various hair types and lengths. Whether you have short hair, long hair, straight hair, or curly hair, our skilled colourists at Hoop Hair Salon can tailor the balayage technique to suit your individual needs.

How Long Does a Balayage Appointment Take?


The duration of a balayage hair colouring session depends on factors such as the complexity of your desired look, your hair's current condition, and its length. On average, a balayage appointment can take around 2 to 4 hours.

Is Balayage High Maintenance Hair Colour?


Balayage is designed to have a soft and seamless regrowth, which means you can enjoy longer periods between touch-ups compared to traditional highlights. However, some maintenance may still be required to keep your balayage looking its best. Our stylists can recommend the appropriate touch-up schedule based on your hair's needs.

Which Hair Colours Can I Have With Balayage?


Balayage offers versatility when it comes to hair colour options. While popular choices include natural-looking shades such as caramel, honey, or sun-kissed blondes, clients choose bold fashion colours, reds, brunettes and even pastel hair colours! You can discuss your desired colour with our expert colourists. They will assess your hair and skin tone to suggest the most flattering shades for your balayage look.
