If you're tired of your current hair colour or you're looking for the natural sun-kissed glow that comes with lighter hair, balayage is a great option to consider. A popular style among many celebs, balayage is a subtle look that will have you looking amazing for summer without the danger of streaky highlights!

Here are five top reasons to book your balayage hair salon appointment.

Lighter hair will make you glow

Spring and summer is the perfect time to go lighter with your hair. With a natural glow, it will look perfect throughout the warmer months (even in Britain) whether you're jetting abroad or have a summer of fun planned at home.

It's a low maintenance style

So, you're thinking about lightening your hair for summer? Amazing! Balayage is a great style to consider no matter what your current hair colour is as you haven't got to worry about your roots growing through quickly. Balayage is a highlighting technique that is weaved through your hair rather than starting at the root so even as it grows out your style will still look good even at the end of summer! Maintenance can be very easy with balayage and it looks just as good on short, medium or long hair.

The end result looks natural

If you want to lighten your hair but you want a subtle look, balayage is perfect for you. Unlike other techniques such as ombre or dip dye, balayage is much softer as re-growth lines are less noticeable and generally blend into your hair more naturally to create a beautiful golden look. Plus, balayage highlights can create the illusion of thicker hair by adding dimension and movement whether you choose platinum blonde or warmer auburn tones.

Balayage is a bespoke service

The creative possibilities are endless with balayage as it's a freehand technique. It's always best to go to a professional hair salon instead of attempting home balayage if you want the best results. Your hairdressers will use patches of light and shade to create multiple dimensions to the colour so you end up with an overall look that blends seamlessly. Your balayage will be bespoke to you so if you'd like lighter parts to frame your face or a particular finish, discuss this with your hairdresser.

It's a great transition going from dark to light

Going from very dark hair to very light hair can be a long process not to mention damaging to your locks, so if you're not completely set on the idea or you'd like a more natural option, consider balayage. When it starts to warm up it can be very tempting to go all out with your hair. However, balayage will create a gorgeous summer-ready look that will ease you in without the harsh contrast between colours.
