'Balayage' is a French term meaning hand painted. The beauty of Balayage is that it is super low maintenance, fully customisable, creates dimension, and super on trend!

Chocolate Brown, Hazelnut and Caramel tones.

The beauty of a brunette Balayage is that there are so many tones that will compliment one another. If you have a darker base shade, aiming towards a lighter brunette or caramel tones will be achievable, realistic and look fab! The beauty of going for shades that compliment one another is that it will be low maintenance, a soft grow out and give a natural sun kissed finish.

Red, Copper tones.

With a variety of shades of red - cherry, copper, auburn - you might be confused at first with what hue to try. A couple of tips when going for a red tone is that cooler skin tones match well darker reds whilst yellow undertone completions compliment a warmer shade of red.

A toning shampoo would be highly recommended to keep on top of the red hue at home. Our EVO Fabuloso Colour Boosting Treatment is an essential to keep on top of your copper, red tones at home!
