A perfect Balayage technique.

A perfect Balayage technique.






The stylists at Antonino Salon and Spa were treated to another advanced education seminar on August 19th.

This time it was to perfect the art of Balayage. This special hair coloring technique was designed to create very natural-looking highlights that grow out without a noticeable and obvious root. Meaning “to sweep” in French, balayage emerged in the 1970’s in Paris and has grown in popularity ever since.

When hair is colored using the balayage technique, highlights are painted on by hand in a sweeping motion that moves from the base of the head to the tip of the hair. At the base, hair color is applied very lightly, while at the tip, the color is applied heavily, creating a chunky highlight that looks naturally sun-kissed. The end result is a natural and beautiful color that has a diffused root line as it grows out, so roots are less noticeable and require less maintenance than traditional highlights.

If you would like to talk with one of our specialists to find out if Balayage is right for you, call us at 248-258-5990 or request an appointment on-line and we will be happy to schedule a consultation.

Steps five through 8 in creating a perfect French Braid-images provided by Hairtalk extensions.












1. Create a side part at the temple sectioning the hair as shown in step 1. This will keep it contained while you move on to step 2.

2. Start a French braid at the opposite temple and work your way around the head as shown.

3. Once you arrive at the back of your shoulder, transition the French braid into a regular braid that will fall in front of your shoulder.

4. Next, take down the clipped section and create a basic fishtail braid. Secure it with a small clear elastic band.

5. Take the fishtail and wrap it around to the back of your head. Tuck it into the French braid and pull the tail through (see photo 5).

6. The end of the fishtail braid that is exposed should be incorporated into the French braid by pinning it into place.

7. Soften and texturize this look by gently tugging on small sections of the braids.

8. For a more romantic look you can also remove a few hairs towards the hairline, finish with a fine mist of flexible hairspray.
