Everything You Need to Know About Balayage in One Place
When it comes to getting my hair styled and coloured, I’m very picky. That’s why it took a long time just to find the right hairdresser that would tell me what suits my face shape and skin tone as opposed to the hairdressers that would do whatever I asked for, even if it doesn’t suit me. So when my hairdresser introduced me to this magical method of styling which is balayage, I never looked back.

Is Balayage Expensive?
Like with everything else, it will depend on where you go and how well it’s done. Personally, my hairdresser charges me close to £300 or over to get it done each time which I’ll admit is expensive but she balayage my hair beyond perfectly and I never regret spending that kind of money each time after seeing the result. Prices tend to start from £50 and onwards but vary greatly from salon to salon. You’ll find that with many salons, you won’t get a clearly defined price for balayage, only a round-about figure. This is because the balayage treatment is bespoke to you. How much it will cost will be determined by the thickness of your hair and the result that you’re after. I’ve had times where my hairdresser will quote me one figure and the result I’m after ended up being a lot more. This is why it’s important to be completely open and honest with your hairdresser. Tell them exactly what you’re after and how much you’re looking to spend. They can then tell you whether that look is achievable with that sort of budget.
