Transform Your Hair with a Beautiful Balayage at Lux Hair Melbourne

What’s more, when it comes to balayage hair, price doesn’t have to break the bank because you tend to need a touch up far less often than other kinds of highlights and colour procedures. However, as always, when it comes down to hairdressing, you get what you pay for. If you look for a cheap balayage price tag, you’re going to get cheap results, so if you want a gorgeous transformation that doesn’t destroy your hair, you need to select an experienced, qualified stylist and salon with an esteemed reputation to match - and that’s where Lux Hair and our incredible team of stylists come in.

What is a Balayage?

“Balayage” sounds as romantic as it looks; this is a French word meaning “to sweep,” and in terms of hair, that’s exactly how the stylist achieves this stunning aesthetic that’s far more natural-looking than highlights. In this professional hair colouring technique, highlights are brushed on by hand, or “swept” randomly over the surface of the hair, starting from the mid-shaft and followed by a thicker, denser covering as the application moves down each section of the hair right to the very ends.

This unique process and application result in a natural transformation of softly blended dark and light strands that produce a dynamic look full of body, movement, and ooh-la-la. And because not all the ends receive colour, the hair showcases interesting variation all over, along with an effortless transition between dark and light that lasts much longer.

Additionally, it’s not just subtle, natural colour, freshness, depth, and a stunningly gradual blend of tones that balayage offers; with this professional technique, hair looks thicker and healthier - and it actually is healthier since this pro-level stylish strategy is far less harsh and invasive on the hair than most other kinds of colouring. Because balayage is less damaging, hair is kept in prime condition and is much less dry, affording sensational Rapunzel-like locks that are as healthy as they are glowing. This also makes a balayage the perfect choice for people with thinner hair, who will see less damage whilst still enjoying all the glitz and glamour of a fresh new hairstyle.

Looking for the Best Balayage Hair Salon in Melbourne?

Well at Lux Hair we have three salons to choose from. We think a trip to our balayage hair salon should be a pleasurable, relaxing experience which is great for you as balayage appointments do take some time. Our salons have great parking options, so you won’t get stressed trying to figure out where to park. Once you come into the calm stylish atmosphere of our salon your friendly hair colourist will get to know you and your hair, so they know how best to approach your balayage. This personalised consultation isn’t something many salons focus on as it takes time, but we think it’s more important to learn how to provide the best service to each customer than rush. This means you won’t ever leave Lux Hair feeling disappointed, you’ll instead leave feeling your best, individual, self.

Quality Products and Experienced Balayage Hair Stylists Make for a Great Experience at Lux Hair

We believe in providing creative colouring options that don’t damage your hair, that’s why we’re confident we’re the best choice for a balayage hair salon. We searched for the best quality products rather than the cheapest. For example, we use Elumen for their bright colours and revolutionary low pH formula that bonds to your hair with a physical reaction, not a chemical one. This is kinder on the hair and creates durable colour plus smoother hair with less frizz.

Creating a balayage in Melbourne for our clients is one of our favourite looks to do as it looks stunning on everyone. It’s becoming more and more popular which we’re so pleased about. Balayage is French for ‘sweeping’. This describes the sweeping freehand dying technique which blends the new colour into your natural colour leaving no hard dye lines. This means the look can give you a fun change in colour but also requires less upkeep as it looks natural as it grows out with no roots to touch up. Balayage is all about working lighter highlights seamlessly amongst your darker hair so we will need to lighten some of your hair. We all know that unfortunately, bleach does come with risks of damage. With balayage though as it’s only certain strands being dyed rather than your whole head of hair, and because you won’t need touch-ups as often, you run less risk of damage. Balayage is also a great choice for those with thinner hair types as the blending of shades makes the hair appear thicker.

We also offer other signature services such as extensions and personalised keratin smoothing treatments to deal with your hair and scalp concerns to compliment your balayage.

Instead of just searching ‘balayage hair near me’, take the plunge and book an appointment online with any of our three salons, in Altona, Preston, or Coburg. It's easy to visit if you're not quite there but are looking for your closest hair salon in Reservoir or if you're wanting a quick hair cut in Newport Our opening times differ slightly but we’re sure you’ll find a time to suit your schedule.

Then get this: it’s one of the easiest colour styles to maintain, making it ideal for those who want the ultimate look without the constant upkeep and expensive maintenance. As your hair grows, the highlights stay on the first layer, which means the colour grows out softly and evenly without any harsh lines or dramatic roots. When you’re ready for a touch up, simply pop into our salon and we’ll freshen it up in no time (with plenty of pampering in between as always).
