The sun is out, the heat is on and it’s time for a new hairstyle! Ditch your old do, get out of that hair rut and freshen up your hair for a festive summer season ahead! If you are contemplating a new color, look no further than Balayage. This look involves lightening of the ends of the hair for a low maintenance, effortlessly chic look.

The first reason Balayage hair for summer are such a great idea is because they allow for some serious root re-growth. Which ultimately means, less salon visits and more time to enjoy the amazing summer weather and party season. It’s also a saving on the hip pocket and a well-needed break for your hair.

BALAYAGE 101:

Haven’t heard of Balayage before? Don’t stress! We will break it down for you. Balayage is the highlighting trend of the moment and it’s not going anywhere fast. Celebrities are forever donning this look and it’s as popular as ever on runways all over the world. A beautiful Balayage is created by applying bleach lightly at the tops and more saturated on the ends, this helps prevent highlights from looking streaky or choppy. Here at Epic Hair Designs, we do Balayage either freehand or with a foiling technique depending on each client’s hair and desired look.

BRING INSPO AND BE REALISTIC:

We LOVE inspiration pics! They are also a great starting point where we can provide the best quote and realistic outcome possible. For most, getting the perfect Balayage is a journey especially if there is already a build-up of colour already in the hair. Don’t fret if you have box-dye too! We have amazing products which lift color and our lightening techniques using Olaplex will eventually get you to the desired look you are after. It’s a journey and we are here to help!

UPDATE YOUR SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER:

Dyed hair needs special attention. Think about it… you have just invested time and money into your amazing new hair look for summer, so it’s important to preserve it. Lightening does put unexpected stress on the hair so it’s important to update your shampoo and conditioner to something that is going to provide moisture and help repair and strengthen the hair. If you have ever had blonde hair then you know it can have the tendency to turn brassy, and the right Shampoo and Conditioner will help neutralize unwanted golden/yellow tones. Your Epic Stylists will be able to advise what take-home products will work best for you.
