Balayage & Ombré
Balayage At Bellissimo Hair Salons In Galway & Limerick
Balayage is one of the most popular hair colour services we offer, and it's not hard to see why! This fashionable hair colour is a great way to enhance your hair colour and style. Balayage is made even better by the fact that this is a very low-maintenance hair colour.
So what is balayage and how is it different from ombré? Our experts at Bellissimo Salons in Galway and Limerick are here to answer all your questions.
Please note: A patch test is required if you are having your hair coloured with us for the first time or if you have not visited in the past 6 months or more. Your patch test must be carried out at least 48 hours in advance of your colour appointment.
What Is Balayage?
Balayage is painted in a vertical motion to create soft hair colour at the roots, growing bolder or lighter towards the ends of the hair. We will blend several different shades but the most popular looks tend to be blonde sun-kissed balayage and money piece highlights.
Whichever effect you choose, balayage is a great low-maintenance hair colour choice. Having soft colour at the roots means you do not need to visit your hair salon as regularly as with a permanent all-over hair colour.
Your hair colourist at Bellissimo Hair Salons in Limerick & Galway will be delighted to suggest hair colours that will work with your base hair colour, skin tone and eye colour to ensure your hair colour is as flattering as possible.
Darker hair looks sensational with warm red balayage or golden balayage highlights - although we can add any colour you fancy! If opting for red balayage, we have a huge colour palette from bright scarlet colours to subtle copper hues.
Balayage can be created on any hair colour base and in any shade, but the most popular has to be blonde balayage. It gives your hair a wonderful sun-kissed look that is sure to give your confidence a lift!
Blonde balayage is also a great way of bringing some sunshine to darker hair colours. Our balayage experts in Galway and Limerick will add multiple different shades of blonde to bring greater movement and dimension to your hair for a beautiful look.
Money Piece Colour
Money piece hair colour is the one of the latest trends which lets you experiment with hair colour without the commitment of a full head of colour. Highlights or strips of colour (normally a lighter, brighter blonde colour or a bright fashion shade) are added around the front hairline to give a contrasting look.
Balayage Vs Ombré
A lot of clients ask us what's the difference between balayage and ombré? Balayage usually gives a subtle 'highlighted' effect throughout the hair, whereas ombré creates a more two-tone effect. Whichever look you choose, your Bellissimo colourist can create a beautiful bespoke hair colour for you.
Babylights are more subtle than balayage. Babylights are very delicate, often blonde, highlights that are added throughout your hair or around the hairline. These fine highlights resemble the highlights you might see in a baby's hair colour. They will give your hair a subtle colour lift.
