The biggest buzzword circulating hair salons these days is BALAYAGE. Anybody who’s anybody is getting it, and any salon or stylist in the know are offering this service to their clients. But what exactly is Balayage, and how can you ensure you’re getting the BEST results possible when trying today’s hottest hair trend?!
Balayage, meaning “hand painted,” is a highlighting technique where lightener is applied to hair without the addition of foils. Because foils are not used during Balayage services, the hair is only able to lift 2-3 levels in one session, creating results that are both soft and natural. Despite the carefree nature of its appearance, Balayage is a rather complex service that takes serious attention to detail and high variables of precision. For this reason, you definitely shouldn’t go just anywhere for this service--you should come to Valente!
The complexity of Balayage is nothing team Valente can’t handle! At Valente, we pride ourselves on offering the BEST Balayage in San Diego. Our team of Valente Master Stylists are all expertly trained to perform Balayage services, and will provide you with your best hair yet AND results you’ll love!
Whether you are a first-timer at Valente or a regular client, our premium salon prepares for every service with a detailed and thorough consultation. This is especially important when receiving highlighting and color treatments, as it allows your Valente Master Stylist to fully understand your hair wants and needs. This time spent chatting with your stylist will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding your Balayage service, or express any comments/concerns you may have prior to beginning the service. You may also want to provide picture examples of hair inspiration that you aspire to have! Once your consultation is complete and there is an agreed understanding of color and style, your Valente Master Stylist will begin your hair transformation!
Section by section, your Valente Master Stylist will hand paint lightener to your hair, with soft strokes gracing the mid-shaft and heavier saturation concentrated on the ends. To achieve the best possible results, please allow a minimum of 3-4 hours for application, processing and the finishing touches! We do not rush perfection at Valente Hair & Co., and always aim to take our time in getting you the results you’ve always dreamed of!
After undergoing any hair lightening and hair color treatments, it is crucial to use the proper products on your hair to retain it’s integrity. At Valente, we offer elite products from Davines and Leonor Greyl that will improve your newly lightened and color-treated hair in many ways!
