What is balayage?

Originating from a French heritage, balayage is a word meaning to sweep or paint. It almost mimics a sun-kissed all-natural looking color, with softer less noticeable regrowth lines. With this styling, a natural less is more approach is best.

How is it applied?

Essentially, balayage is applied at the surface of the hair and not saturated all the way through until the very tips.

In other terms it can be known as the â%u20AC%u02DCfreehandâ%u20AC%u2122 technique due to the fact that no foil or meche is used to create the highlights.

While not many traditional salons are skilled in the technique of balayage, the recent surge of celebrities and models sporting the balayage look has sparked true interest and created a new trend.  Bella Salon specializes in the balayage treatment for clients in the Danvers, Peabody, Middleton, Salem, Beverly and surrounding areas.

How is the maintenance?

Balayage requires very little maintenance as it grows out naturally, leading to no obvious regrowth lines. Thisl allows longer time in between appointments. All you really need to do is use a color protecting shampoo and conditioner, along with heat protection when styling.
