I love when I get to introduce clients to fun, fresh, new ways of enhancing their hair. I love to educate them to the many ways that I can transform their look and personal style. Mind you, that I never force anyone to do anything I merely suggest ideas (plant seeds, if you will) that they can mull over in the moment or in the weeks that follow. Either way, my clients get to decide. THAT said, I always recommend that you consult before you jump…everyone wins! When someone is ‘on board’ we discuss the detail of the process and the cost…not only for the initial appointment but the maintenance going forward as well…again..everyone wins! Sometimes we elect to do part of the process (baby steps) and in future appointments leap to the finish! Other times I get to perform a service that actually saves them time and money in the future. Here’s where the Balayage comes in. Balayage, a French word meaning “to sweep”, has long been touted as an alternate way of highlighting hair (of ANY color, texture or length for that matter!). It’s a ‘free-hand’, painting, technique that seems to be taking on steam here in the mid section of the country and I couldn’t be happier! This is Mary. An exciting change for a High School Sophomore who’d never colored her hair before. LOW maintenance hair color!
