Balayage is a low-maintenance hair colouring technique that creates natural-looking, sun-kissed highlights. This look not only adds depth to your hair but dimension as well. Balayage leaves your hair looking fresh and beachy vibe that perfectly complements the summer season. 

Balayage allows for a customisable look, as your stylist can tailor the placement and intensity of the highlights to suit your preferences and skin tone. This versatility ensures a personalised and flattering outcome. 

This look grows out nicely which means that fewer touch-ups are required, allowing you to enjoy your summer without having to visit your salon too often. Embrace the sun-kissed beauty of balayage and elevate your look this summer!

Bright blonde

Blonde and summer are old friends. Blonde hair is synonymous with sun-kissed beauty and radiance, instantly brightening up your overall look. The lighter shades of blonde complement the warm weather and can enhance your summer wardrobe, making you feel confident and stylish.

Lighter hair colours also have a transformative effect, giving you a fresher and more youthful look. It can also create a captivating contrast against your skin tone, emphasizing your features and really bringing them out.

Pink Streaks

Why not be pretty in pink this summer? Adding a touch of colour to your hair this summer can be a vibrant and exciting choice. Pink is a popular colour to go with as it represents playfulness, creativity and individuality making it a perfect statement for the sunny season.

Adding these streaks can instantly elevate your look, infusing it with some fun. Pink is also a very versatile colour that can complement various skin tones and hair textures, allowing everyone the ability to express their unique personality. 

Summer is an opportunity to experiment and embrace a trend that embodies a carefree spirit and attitude. 

Brown on Brown

Having darker hair in the summer can sometimes feel a bit dull. If you want to try brightening up your darker hair without going in too much of an extreme direction, try adding light brown highlights. 

Adding these highlights can bring dimension and depth to your hair, creating a natural sun-kissed effect that beautifully complements the bright and sunny season. These highlights infuse warmth and brightness into your overall look, giving you a new and younger appearance. 

Light brown highlights also offer versatility as they easily blend in with your natural hair colour. This look is also low in maintenance, allowing you to enjoy your hair for longer periods of time before you have to return to the salon.
