What is balayage?

The balayage technique is sweeping the beauty nation, leaving its metallic predecessor foiled in comparison.

Pronounced BALĀˈYÄZH/BA-LIE-AZHE, a derivative of the French verb balayer meaning 'sweep away', balayage is a customized technique geared towards a lower maintenance grow-out with no harsh line of demarcation when those inevitable roots start to grow in.

This technique is a true form of art. Less uniform than foils, the creativity of your Stylist and the sweeping motion of a balayage brush can give you a painless lift with pops of light framing your face. Application is based off your hair's texture and movement to imitate the natural effects the sun would have on your strands.  And blondes aren't the only ones having fun with this sun-kissed glow. Brunettes, red heads and even the darkest hair can benefit from the multifaceted dimension you get from hair painting.  Balayage gives a gorgeous healthy finish that looks nature-enhanced, glossy and expensive.

Although balayage can be a lower maintenance option to your traditional foils, don't be surprised if your Stylist suggests more than one session to achieve your desired look. Because balayage doesn't use the heat conductor that foiling offers, you may require more than one appointment to get that bombshell blonde you're dying for. Besides, healthy hair is attractive hair and that’'ll never go out of fashion!

BABE Extensions Transformation

Babe Extensions SalottoWe removed Sheridan's previously bonded extensions that we're leaving her hair looking "stringy" and had begun to cause damage to her natural hair. We supplimented her desire for lucious length and va va-volume with BABE tape-in extensions for her sorority formal tonight at USC.  Tape-in extensions are applied in narrow wefts of remi, human hair with a surgical strength adhesive.  Remi hair is the highest grade of human hair available on the makret and the width of the wefts allow for a snug fit to the rounds of your head, with minimal to NO damage to your locks.

Sheridans needs required 4 packs of hair to acheive the "after" effects below, but a transformation can be made with as little as one package of hair and upkeep as frequent as every 6-8 weeks.

If you would like to learn more about our extension installation, consultations are free! Call Salotto Salon or Salotto Blowdry Lounge to schedule your appointment with one of our extension specialists.
