How Much is the Balayage at Gusto Hair Salons, Soho, Covent Garden & Oxford Street?
Balayage is a hair colouring technique that is slowly but surely surpassing highlights to become the colour technique of choice. It really is the perfect option for those who want to add some depth and dimension to their hair whilst keeping it beach natural and in vogue.
The main difference between balayage and other highlighting techniques is that the colour is applied freehand, rather than using foils or meche strips. This gives the colourist more control over where the colour is placed and can create a more natural-looking effect. It also means it's a more technical service, requiring more skills and experience to pull off with expertise.
Balayage has also become an umbrella term for a range of popular colouring techniques including root smudge, colour melt hair, money piece highlights and ombre. Read more about the various types of balayage available at Gusto hair salons in Soho, Covent Garden & Oxford Street.
Many salons philosophies for balayage prices depend on the length and thickness of your hair, as well as the experience of the colourist.

Balayage Prices - How Much?
The cost of balayage traditionally depends on a few factors, such as the length and thickness of your hair, the colour you are aiming for, and how experienced your stylist is. Generally speaking, though, length can often be a bad arbitrator of costs - even if your hair is super long or extra thick, what counts is the ability to achieve the look required regardless on hair quantity.
We at Gusto hair salons in London's West End, like to keep things as intuitive and transparent as possible, with one all in price for the balayage, and any additions such as Olaplex kept separate. Prices across London can vary from £120 to upwards of £400. We keep things simple, costing no more than circa £145 regardless of length.
A half-head balayage is typically half the cost of a full-head balayage, so that is something to keep in mind when considering the price. For example, if you are getting a full head balayage for £140, you could get a half head for £70.
The foilayage is another type of hair colouring technique that uses foils instead of free-hand painting the colour. It is a cross between foiling and balayage, hence the name. This service is typically more expensive than balayage due to the extra time and effort it takes for your stylist to complete the look. However, the results that can be more striking are often worth it! As a result of the additional effort, materials and expertise, expect to spend an additional 20-30% extra on top of the balayage costs.
