Of course! Balayage is popular for blondes and brunettes but even shades such as red or even grey hair can benefit from a balayage! 
Have you had a questionable colour experience or your roots need sorting out ASAP? Fear not! The balayage is able to transform your hair wholesale from the roots to the ends. Gusto hair salons in London is home to an experienced team of colour correction specialists and will identify the areas of your hair that need attention. They will talk you through the process needed in order to correct your home balayage hair colour and most importantly, bring it back to a beautiful condition! 
YES! The balayage colouring technique can be applied to any hair length effectively. However, it is most striking on medium to longer length hair. Not only does the balayage create sweeping natural looking tones, but it also creates the illusion of thick luscious hair, as the technique is magnified top to bottom, giving your hair more "protrusion" and more of a multifaceted layered colour burst!
The great thing about the balayage, in contrast to other colour techniques, is that it's longer lasting, thanks to its already natural freehand effects. Nonetheless, it is always crucial you maintain the vibrancy of your gorgeous new colour. We recommend anti-stripping shampoos and conditioners such as Reflection Bain Chromatique Shampoo and Conditioner and the WNt London Shampoo and Conditioner. Both protect your hair without affecting the viciousness of your tones!
Balayage has become an umbrella term for many new & creative hair colouring techniques. These can include; Money piece colour, Face frame balayage, Reverse balayage, Instagram balayage, Colour Contouring, Root Melts & Root Smudge to name but a few!
One of the great things about the balayage hair colour technique is that you don't have to visit the salon so often between colour appointments. We would recommend booking your appointment between 8 and 12 weeks with a toning visit to keep your colour looking fresh.
Balayage, Ombre & creative colour services vary depending on the exact look you are after. Your Gusto Colour expert will be able to give you a more detailed figure at your hair colour consultation.
