Balayage Hair Colour At Christian Wiles Hair Salon In Northampton

At Christian Wiles Hairdressing we create some of the best balayage & ombre hair colours in Northampton. If you are looking for a beautiful, low maintenance hair colour, book in for a complimentary consultation with one of our colour experts.  We will discuss the look you desire and come up with a plan to give you an amazing bespoke balayage that suits you perfectly.

Not sure what balayage is?  Balayage comes from the French word meaning ‘to paint’ which is exactly what our expert colourists do. Highlights are usually hand-painted throughout your hair to create a sun-kissed look which flatters your face through careful placement and application.

Traditional foil highlights are becoming a thing of the past, they have such an 80s look and certainly not something the modern woman wants.  So, when everyone’s asking you where you’ve been on holiday, remember to say Christian Wiles Hairdressing in Northampton!

How Is Ombré Different To Balayage?

blonde balayage at christian wiles hair salon in northampton Balayage is one of the most popular hair colouring techniques because it is low maintenance and creates a natural look.

Balayage has less noticeable root regrowth because the darker colour is usually applied nearer to the roots, matching your own root colour. This means you won’t have to come in for a touch up as often (although we recommend coming in every 6-8 weeks to keep it looking fresh!).

With the ombré technique there is a more obvious contrast between the hair colours used so you can almost see a demarcation line between the two chosen shades.

Balayage For Mid-Length Hair

balayage for mid length hair at christian wiles hairdressing salon northamptonVery often you will see balayage images of women with long flowing locks but, as you can see from our image, balayage also looks fabulous on mid-length hair. 

Soft, beautiful balayage is a particular specialism at Christian Wiles. We will bespoke your hair colour to enhance your cut whether that’s a face-flattering bob or a longer lob!

Our hair colour experts will work with your haircut and natural hair growth patterns as well as the variance of tones in your hair, for a totally bespoke finish.

Because it’s hand-painted, your Christian Wiles colourist can choose the placements to best complement your haircut, skin and features so it looks naturally coloured, unless you opt for a fashion colour balayage!

We realise it can sometimes be difficult to explain exactly what hairstyle or colour you want, which is why it’s always worth showing your stylist some images of colours and looks you like.

Red Or Blonde Balayage
