Waves styling with balayage

Tiger-Eye Balayage

2016 has truly been all about Balayage colour, and our colour team has been lapping up the latest techniques. Our latest obsession? Tiger-Eye. The latest update on the trend, named by top LA colourists, is all about rich jewel tones which mimic the tiger eye gemstone – think silky and lustrous golden and red-brown tones.

To achieve the look, our colourists pair hand-painted freehand caramel highlights with rich warm, or dark chocolate bases. The trick is keeping the look subtle and natural by seamlessly blending the tones, and carefully placing the lighter tones to properly frame the face. The mix of warmer colours makes it perfect for brunette babes, where that light blonde sunkissed Balayage look just isn’t achievable.

The best part? This latest iteration of balayage is super low-maintenance, and can be grown out without the need for touch ups. If you’re committed to upkeep, visiting the salon for regular toners or gloss-treatments will keep the tiger tones looking lustrous and shiny with little effort.
