What is a brown balayage?

A brown balayage is a sophisticated hair colouring technique that involves hand-painting (also known as freehand) or utilising foils to achieve lighter shades of brown onto a darker shade of hair, creating a gradual and seamless transition between tones. This method adds depth, dimension, and a sun-kissed effect to the hair, enhancing its natural texture and movement. Unlike traditional highlights, the balayage technique allows for a more natural and soft blend of colours, providing a customised look that suits most hair lengths and styles.

Why is brown balayage so popular?

The rising popularity of brown balayage can be attributed to its versatility and ability to offer a subtle glow to darker hair. This technique requires less maintenance compared to traditional highlighting methods, making it an attractive option for those seeking a natural and low-maintenance colour. Its adaptability to different skin tones, as well as the soft, effortless look it imparts, has made it a sought-after choice among individuals looking to elevate their hair colour without a drastic change.

What is the different between brown balayage and blonde balayage?

The key distinction between a brown balayage and a blonde balayage lies in the choice of hues. While both techniques use the hand-painted or foilayage techniques, a brown balayage incorporates various shades of brown to create a softer, more subtle blend that complements natural brown or even darker hair. In contrast, a blonde balayage uses lighter shades of blonde, delivering a more radiant, sunnier effect against the base hair colour. The choice between brown and blonde balayage depends on the desired level of contrast and overall aesthetic preference.

What does a brown balayage do to your hair?

A skillfully applied brown balayage adds depth and dimension to brown or darker hair ensuring a more subtle change. When maintained properly, it can actually enhance the overall dimension and appearance of the hair. However, as with any colouring process, it’s essential to follow proper hair care routines and use quality products to maintain the vibrancy and health of both the natural and coloured hair.

What is the downside to brown balayage?

When considering the downside to brown balayage, especially when opting for a more subtle effect, the primary aspect to note is the level of contrast. While the subtlety of brown balayage offers a natural and soft transition between tones, it might result in a less dramatic change compared to more noticeable colour variations.

For someclients seeking their first balayage experience, the subtlety might be a benefit, as it allows for a gentle introduction to the colouring process without an overly bold or striking outcome. However, the downside might be the potential for a less visible transformation, especially if someone desires a more pronounced change in their hair colour.

Despite this, the advantage lies in the ease of growing out the colour, as there are no harsh lines or demarcations, ensuring a smoother transition back to the natural hair colour if desired in the future.

What does a brown balayage cost?

Seeking a nearby balayage service? The pricing for balayage is influenced by factors like salon location, stylist expertise, and hair length. We’ve assessed average balayage costs in Abingdon salons, generally including toner and blow-dry. This typically ranges between £135 to £250, varying based on the stylist and salon. Costs often trend higher in central Oxford. At Wisteria Avenue in 2023, the average price stood at £150, though prices varied. For a tailored quote aligned with your unique hair needs and desired results, consulting your stylist is advisable. Remember, investing in an adept colorist significantly impacts the success and satisfaction of your balayage.

Before any hair colour service, whether it’s balayage or another treatment, both a skin test and consultation are mandatory. These crucial steps ensure the safety of the colouring process and determine its suitability for your hair’s requirements.

Furthermore, the consultation serves as a personalised session to identify the perfect service tailored precisely to your preferences. Occasionally, clients may choose services that don’t completely align with their objectives, and the consultation acts as a guide, directing them towards the most suitable choices.

Balayages aren’t the same for every client.

However the appointment type is the same. If you know you want a balayage, we’d encourage you to proceed with the booking!

Balayage techniques vary depending on each client.

We don’t assume clients to be familiar with all balayage terms! However, visual references are invaluable. If you have a specific look in mind, we highly recommend bringing pictures to your consultation.

Typically, the variations in balayage styles don’t significantly impact the pricing. For instance, the ‘money piece’ trend is currently popular and is a fantastic addition that doesn’t alter the pricing.

Each of our Stylists boasts a minimum of 10 years of experience in the field.

During consultations, we aim to assess the feasibility and possibility of achieving your desired look in a single session.

Dark or light hair, a consultation aims to answer this question and others to better understand what the likely outcome might be.

In some cases it’s possible. In others we take a more pragmatic view.
