Balayage

From the Catwalks of Paris to the Streets of Denver

Bring a little French fashion to Jefferson Park with balayage color in Denver, Colorado. Deseo Salon & BlowDry is your premiere luxury color studio for on-trend hair in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. 

Balayage comes from the French word “to sweep.” Imagine a master painter artfully weaving tones of light and brilliance through each strand of hair. The darkest shadow begins at the roots and blooms gradually into a vibrant, sun-kissed hue at the ends of the hair. This unique lightening technique requires delicate precision to achieve. Our expert colorists are trained in hand-painted highlights to bring out the best in balayage color.

Capturing the Look of Balayage Beauty

Think Rhianna, Chrissy Tiegen, and Jessica Alba. These daring divas are just a few of our celebrity style inspos when it comes to rocking balayage hair. The beauty of balayage is that this color option works well on most hair lengths, types, and textures. The hues are bold and brilliant because this technique works on most hair lengths and on blondes just as well as brunettes.

Like ombre, balayage is highly customizable. It’s no surprise that this easily tailored color is a favorite among celebrity stylists for its versatility and beauty.

Sweeping Style

A balayage color service is unlike your typical all over color or foil highlight. The process is a little more delicate, and the end result will have you feeling like you’ve been vacationing on a secluded beach. A natural, sun-kissed glow is the final product of hand-painted highlights that blend into each section of hair flawlessly. 

Unlike with ombre, which captures a distinct gradient effect, a stylist will take smaller sections and paint the color onto the surface of the hair. Where ombre lies in a horizontal paint stroke pattern, balayage is more vertical. What does this mean for your lovely locks? Not every strand will be uniform and even, particularly the ends. Balayage is a more blended style that leaves some natural color while distributing softer highlights throughout. It’s the perfect color for those looking to try out highlights for the first time!

Shine Bright, Stay Flawless

We know what you’re thinking. Anything inspired by the runways of Paris must be high maintenance, right?

Wrong! Balayage is on the low-maintenance end of the color spectrum.

When applied by a trained colorist, the style can last anywhere between two to four months and fade effortlessly into your untreated hair. The key to applying balayage is creating depth, shine, and a healthy glow. The lighter pieces of each layer give the illusion of a natural highlight, minus the risk of UV damage and sun exposure. When painted onto individual strands, fullness and dimension shine through. 

The careful application process is among the more gentle coloring techniques because the highlight is applied directly to the surface of the hair rather than the root. This minimizes the risk of breakage. Brassy, yellow, and dull undertones are less apparent due to the contrast of dark and light strands. Also, they’re easily counteracted with color balancing products and serums!

Balayage works best with medium and long hair. But professional stylists can apply the look to choppy lobs and layered bobs. Enhancing your style with soft curls is one of the most popular ways to rock this look. Pair a color treatment with a gloss and toner service for added shine, and you’ll be ready for your close up.
