What is balayage?
(ba-lay-age)
Balayage is a great alternative to highlights. With this technique, you're able to have natural looking hair with low maintainence up-keep. Instead of placing foils used in traditional highlights throughout the hair, balayage is the technique of freehand painting the dye on the hair in such a way that creates a gradual, natural looking effect.

Lived-In Color & Style at Salon Envy


a.k.a. The after-math of ombre. Created by Ramirez and his entire team in Beverly Hills, California that specialize in "lived-in color" - a subtle, enturing way of highlighting your hair that he insists is neither balayage nor ombre. "Lived-in Color" is also known as the 6 month color.

Its about as low maintenance as you can get with hair color, but as cutting edge as hair color can be.. We love this technique and are thrilled about the new opportunity to go to Beverly Hills and take classes from Ramirez-Tran Salon hopefully in the next year.

In the mean time, follow Ramirez on instagram and continue to gawk at his work. We specialize in balayage in at Salon Envy and LOVE to incorporate some of his color techinques into our salon.

What is Balayage Hair Color?

If you have been thinking of trying some balayage hair color and are ready to UPDATE your hair color,  here is a good read to understand balayage before your service..

Balayage is a coloring technique used to create sun-kissed, natural-looking highlights. Used as an alternative to foil highlighting, hair color or lightener is swept or painted onto the individual hair strand to create depth, lightness and dimension.  The method originated in France in the 1970s. The word “Balayage” actually comes from the French word “to sweep.”

Balayage hair painting is less expensive to maintain than traditional highlights. Many can go 3-4 months between appointments since your natural hair color will blend in with the natural-looking, painted highlights as it grows.

Balayage hair painting isn’t just for blondes or one type of haircut. It is also perfect for brunettes and redheads that want a subtle, sun-kissed look. Balayage can enhance almost any haircut, length or texture. You can customize your cut by adding dimension with Balayage to show off the shape.

Balayage is the in-salon color service choice among celebrities, models and fashionistas – those that demand hair color to be designed exclusively for them. Balayage allows your colorist to utilize their creativity and artistic talent to personalize the placement of each highlight for a customized result.
 

The LOB "CREATED"

Posted:

Since our "LOB" a.k.a. Long Bob Haircut blog was posted recently, we figured we would show how we can CREATE one!

If your sides are short/damaged/too thin and your'e unhappy with your hair all together: Consider adding extensions to the sides & cutting some length and damage off the back. Here on our client Anna, Rachel added Great Lengths USA Cold Fusion hair extensions to her sides while giving her the LOB haircut! The sides of Annas hair were not long enough to have the look, so we decided to CREATE it!
