What is Balayage?

BalayageAt Hair & Co BKLYN, you can be assured that when you walk into our eclectic salon, you’ll be in the capable hands of our professional colorists and stylists. We understand that everyone is different, so as your premier choice for hair care, we offer a wide variety of styles and techniques so we can find the perfect fit for you. One of the latest and greatest coloring techniques that we offer in our Brooklyn salon is Balayage.


‘Balayage’ is a French word that means to sweep or to paint. This is a French coloring technique where the coloring is applied by hand rather than by using traditional foiling. It’s applied on the surface and it isn’t saturated through the sections until the tips. Our experts will be able to place the color so it suits your skin tone perfectly and make sure it lights up your facial features. Balayage can be done for almost all styles of hair with the exception of some very short cuts. It is a style that suits almost any length and is truly flattering for all.

What Are the Benefits of Balayage?

You may decide to choose the Balayage technique for a whole list of reasons, some of which include the following:

  • Balayage is a great look for the spring and summer; it’s a natural way of dying your hair that just looks like you’ve been basking in the sun
  • It requires very little maintenance.
  • You won’t have a solid line of demarcation or regrowth so you can go longer without getting your hair colored again.
  • It’s becoming more and more fashionable; you’ll see many celebrities choosing this style.

Hair & Co BKLYN is proud to offer Balayage among our many other services. Balayage starts at $175 for a stylist to color your hair, and moves to an upwards of $250 for a more senior team member. For a full list of our prices on Balayage and everything else we offer, check out our services page.
