Expert Balayage Hair Colour in Woking at Hair Lab Hair Salon

Balayage is still the most asked-for hair colour in our Woking salon and this on-trend look shows no signs of diminishing in popularity.

You may also have heard balayage called root melting, root stretching, colour melts, ombré, lived in blonde and colour bleeds. All are popular colouring techniques and are where our hair colour specialists can ‘stretch’ your roots and add multi-dimensional shades, growing lighter towards the ends of your hair for an on-trend look - your look can be as subtle or dramatic as you wish. 

Please note – you will need to pop into the salon at least 48 hours before any hair colour appointment so we can carry out a quick skin test.

What's The Difference Between Balayage & Ombré?

A popular question we get asked is ‘what is the difference between balayage & ombré hair colour’?

Balayage comes from the French meaning ‘to paint’ or ‘to sweep’ where Ombré hair gives a more defined colour change with darker roots becoming lighter towards the ends. Ombré hair colouring will give you a more subtle blend of colour usually ‘dark to light’ but can also include fun fashion hair colours.

We advise you pop in to the salon for a complimentary colour consultation with one of our team where they will happily discuss the best hair colouring application methods and techniques for you.

Root Shadowing, Root Stretching & Colour Melts

If you are looking for low maintenance hair colours that give a natural, seamless grow out with an easy touch-up option then root shadowing, root stretching & colour melts may be just what you’ve been looking for.

These on-trend colouring techniques allows your skilled Hair Lab colour technician to gently ‘stretch’ or ‘smudge’ your root colour and add multi-dimensional shades, growing lighter towards the tips

During your in-depth hair colour consultation, we promise to speak jargon-free and will explain all the different options available. We also encourage you to bring pictures of hair colours that you like and dislike so we can talk you through your colour choice.

Help! My Home Balayage Kit Has Gone Wrong!

A very common result caused by incorrect home balayage applications is unwanted brassy & yellow tones in the hair or a harsh band of colour which is obvious instead of being seamlessly blended.

Luckily for you we are home to the best hair colourists in Woking, who have received specialist colour training. They can hand paint subtle, highlights throughout your hair exactly where you want them – something that you can not do yourself at home.

How Do I look After My Balayage Hair Colour?

In our hair salon in Woking we offer a variety of specialist hair treatments including Smartbond which can be applied as a pre-shampoo or direct to the colour bowl. Smartbond works to protect weaker parts of the hair by reconstructing ion bonds to give you revitilised, healthy, glossy hair.

If your main objective is to achieve a glossy shine and remove unwanted brassy tones from your balayage hair colour, then a toner is right for you. Colour glosses are another great way in which to give a beautiful finish and enrich tones in the hair.
