French for sweeping, the balayage technique allows your stylist to handpaint highlights for a natural, sun-kissed color.
Maintenance Level: Low
Because these highlights are painted in a way that looks lived-in already, the maintenance is minimal. Your highlights should be refreshed every 10-12 weeks; you may like to refresh your glaze every 5-6 weeks.
*Balayage highlights combined with a base color/grey coverage application will require more maintenance.
Single Process Color
Also referred to as a base color, this is a great option for changing your canvas or grey coverage. Your stylist custom-mixes your color to your desired tone.
Maintenance Level: Moderate
Your Single Process Color will require a retouch every 6 weeks as your natural new growth becomes visible. Depending upon the difference between your natural color and your canvas, you may want to come in earlier or wait a little longer.
Bleach and Tone
Platinum bling-bling blonde. This color is difficult to achieve and can be a multi-appointment process, especially if you already have color on your hair.
Maintenance Level: High
This service requires a retouch about every 5 weeks, depending on how quickly your hair grows. After about 6 weeks new growth typically becomes too long for the color to process at the same speed and you may need a color correction. At-home and in-salon treatments are recommended to keep hair healthy after lightening services such as this one.
Partial or Full Highlight
A partial highlight is applied to the hair at the front hairline and extending to the crown of the head and between the ears.
A full highlight is applied to the hair from the nape of the neck to the front hairline.
Because these highlights start at your base, you will notice your regrowth around 6 weeks after your service depending on your natural color. You may prefer to get a full highlight every 2-3 services and maintain with a partial highlight between.
All vivid color services require a consultation. These colors are very difficult to achieve in one appointment. These tones tend to fade more quickly than others and at-home care is important for longevity.
Due to the amount of lightening done on the hair prior to the color application, hair texture may be compromised. In-salon and at-home treatments are highly recommended. Because these colors can fade quickly, to keep colors vibrant you may want to refresh every 3-4 weeks, depending on the color and placement.
