We all love balayage for the same reasons:
It's that sunkissed glow that grows out beautifully and is low maintenance!!!
Ok you guys its low Maintenance not No Maintenance!
Heres how to keep your Balayage looking amazing, fresh and just how you left the salon!
The biggest maintenance is going to be your TONER!!!
The toner is a huge deal for balayage, and makes the world of a difference!
It's going to keep your Ashy balayage looking Ashy or your Sandy blonde looking Sandy.
All colour warms up over time, so your hair is going to start looking brassy and dull over time!
The toner is also going to keep your balayage looking beautifully blended too!
They are quick, easy and super affordable to keep your colour looking Gorgeous!
Here is a photo of a Before Toner and After Toner so you can see the difference!
Your hair grows 1/2 inch a month which means in 6 months your blonde is going to be 3 inches down. If you want your blonde to stay higher up (especially those who want the face framing highlights in the front) Then you need to come in sooner and get your balayage highlights touched up. If you don't mind having the blonde further down then perfect all you need to do is keep up with your toners and cuts!
If you want to keep your hair healthy, trims are the way to go!
If your getting balayage then your going to have some kind of blonde on your ends
which means regular cuts is a must!
Everyones hair is different but just to touch on how often you should get your hair cut here you go!
Healthy non damaged hair I would say come see me 4 times a year for a trim!
If your hair has had a lot of chemical treatments done or your more prone to split ends, I would say come in every 8 weeks!
Oh course this is a different story to anyone with super short hair or maintaining a particular cut!
To any ladies reading this and is interested in getting a balayage done by me please come in to the Salon for a free consultation! I would love to see you and talk about your hair goals and start your hair journey together!
