What is a Balayage?

A Balayage is a style of hair coloring that refers to the technique of the colorist hand painting the hair with a brush to create a graduated, natural look. The word Balayage is a french word that means “to sweep”. It is extremely popular here at David Rios Salon and is great for people with light or dark hair.

A Balayage coloring can be subtle or very dramatic. For a subtle look women with dark hair such as black or a very deep brown should consider chocolate tips to add dimension to their hair. This look also happens to be one of our Coolest Winter 2017 Hair Trends!


Now of course you can always go for a more dramatic look as well. The more dramatic looks are very summer inspired but nothing says you can’t go year around with that beachy surfer look. Feel free to come in for a free consultation with one of our master colorists Kelly and Patrycja.


Balayage hair coloring can also be great for those that prefer the non natural colors. Any color can be painted on and luckily our colorist Shirley is a master with any color of the spectrum.
