What is Balayage Hair Colour?

Balayage hair colour provides a sun kissed natural looking hair colour that avoids a hard regrowth line. It is a more modern hair colouring technique to add soft, subtle highlights to the hair.

Your stylist can apply the colour directly onto the hair using a freehand technique or as foil highlights for a bespoke look. Balayage highlights are often added around the face to create an on-trend, low maintenance colour that is tailor made for you.

No matter if you fancy a soft pastel toned balayage, vibrant copper balayage or want platinum blonde, silver grey or ice white hair - there is sure to be the perfect shade for you.

Root Shadowing, Root Stretching & Colour Melts

2 1Colour melting & root stretch colours are popular techniques that discreetly blend strategically placed highlights throughout the hair to achieve maximum effect. The highlights are blended or ‘melted’ away from the root with a shade almost identical to your natural colour so there are no harsh lines between the different shades. 

We can ‘stretch’ or ‘drag’ out your root colour, adding multi-dimensional shades, growing lighter towards the ends of your hair. No matter if you’re looking for a blonde, brunette, or red colour melt, or want a root stretch that blends the root colour with balayage tones, lowlights or highlights we have you covered at KAM hair salon, Elgin & Lossiemouth in Moray.

What Is The Difference Between Highlights, Lowlights & Balayage?

1 1Using foils to add highlights or lowlights to hair is often regarded as one of the most natural looking hair colour techniques. Highlighting is a general term for when the hair is lightened to a shade lighter than the natural base. Highlights are perfect for creating subtle, sun kissed hues.

Lowlights are when a darker tone is added to create a contrast against the natural hair colour. Lowlights can really add depth to your hair colour and can be used to create multi-tonal, three-dimensional hair colour.

Balayage is where your hair colour is gently blended creating a natural transition between shades. Hand painted balayage highlights allows your skilled KAM colourist to hand select the pieces of hair they want to highlight creating a personalised hair balayage look. The results are a less noticeable regrowth line due to the application methods used.

Ombré, Sombré & Babylights

3 1Clients also ask for babylights, ombré and sombre colour when they visit our hairdressing salon in Elgin, all of which are all slightly different to balayage. We can help to clarify which look you want during your complimentary hair colour consultation.

So, what is ombré? Ombré is defined as when your hair colour gradually blends from one colour to another. It’s a great way for brunettes, blondes and red heads to have fun with hair colour with the dark to light hair colour graduation. Ombré hair colouring will give you a more subtle blend of colour usually ‘dark to light’ but can also include fun fashion hair colours. 

Sombré is a softer more natural looking version of ombré, the root colour is often left the natural base shade and then a lighter colour is seamlessly blended towards the ends of the hair.

Babylights are subtle highlights that give a natural finish similar to when your hair has been kissed by the sun. This style of highlights is perfect for those wanting a naturally highlighted hair colour that does not look like you have just stepped out of a salon. Babylights can create a beautiful light blonde balayage effect – perfect for those wanting a cool tone to their blonde hair. 

How To Keep Your Balayage From Going Brassy  

If your main objective is to achieve a glossy shine and remove unwanted brassy tones from your balayage hair colour, then a toner is right for you. Colour glosses are another great way in which to give a beautiful finish and enrich tones in the hair.

Balayage Hair Colours For Brunettes

Liven up brown hair by adding a few subtle, slightly red-toned highlights to give a bronzed effect, add warm caramel tones or keep it classic with a rich, chocolatey brunette balayage. Your first step towards stunning hair colour is to join us for a complimentary hair colour consultation where the balayage experts in Moray's KAM hair salon can discuss the look you want to create.

Set to become a huge hair colour trend is bronde balayage. Created by mixing blonde and brunette shades together, to create a stunning sun kissed look. We can tailor our balayage hair colouring techniques to get a colour that is individual to you – whether it be soft, subtle, strong or bold.
