Our NYC Hair Salon Is Known For Its Signature Balayage Highlights
So what exactly is balayage? Our L’Oreal Professional team of hair colorists are the balayage experts in NYC. Balayage is actually a French word for painting and the technique originated in France. It’s a method of hand-painting sections of hair with lightener or hair color in order to create highlights that look as if the sun had lightened the hair naturally.
Typically, balayage highlights are concentrated on the center and ends of the hair, for the most natural-looking result. Many hair color experts also like to frame the face with balayage highlights. Because they’re not placed right at the root, regrowth is not noticeable, so frequent touch-ups aren’t necessary, making balayage a cost-effective hair color service. However, sometimes color artists like to combine balayage highlights with traditional, foil highlights for a more substantial lightening effect.

Top 10 Balayage Highlights Salons NYC. Over 90 Shades & Tones!
PLATINUM BALAYAGE HAIR COLOR: Ice princesses rejoice! This clean, clear blonde balayage is completely Frozen-worthy, and has the cool impact of a Scandinavian blizzard. The roots are light, beige blonde and the wide balayage highlights in the center and on the ends are snowy pale.
LIGHT BLONDE BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS COLOR: It’s blonde hair shot through with moonlight. Champagne strands are embellished with glistening silver balayage highlights to produce this shimmering effect. Applying the highlights with a delicate touch produces the all-over, gleaming result.
MEDIUM BLONDE BALAYAGE HAIR COLOR: Also referred to as “bronde,” this medium blonde confection combines the best of both palettes. It’s a mélange of milk chocolate and cocoa brown, plus mocha and light cream highlights.
DARK BLONDE BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS HAIR COLOR: Perfect if your hair is on the dark side naturally, this combo maintains some of your rich, natural hue, then enlivens it with streaks of smoky blonde. Highlights should be heavier on a darker base, and for the most natural-looking results, your stylist will mix up the sizes, making some highlights thicker and some finer.
What Is Your Current Hair Coloring History & What Hair Color Are You Looking To Achieve?
LIGHT BROWN BALAYAGE HAIR COLOR: As innocent as a little kid, these subtle tones of sandy brown and buttery blonde will look like you spent the summer building sandcastles on the beach—even if you never left your desk! The key to placing these balayage highlights is to aim for the spots where the sun would hit your hair—around the face, on the crests of the waves and on the tips.
MEDIUM BTOWN BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Warm brown hair color is lovely on its own. But add a few golden blonde highlights and, whoa! The results turn heads! Subtlety is the key to highlighting this hue. We recommend placing highlights in a v-shape on select sections, leaving the center of the “v” un-highlighted, for delicately beautiful results.
DARK BROWN BALAYAGE HAIR COLOR: Chocolate, caramel and honey work beautifully on the dessert tray, and the combination is equally delicious when it comes to balayage. These dramatic hues are bold and glamorous, and they reflect your confident approach to style and fashion.
Can’t Decide Between Traditional Foils, Balayage Highlights or Ombre Highlights?
SILVER GREY BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS HAIR COLOR: Grey is the new black. Rather than running screaming at the onset of a few grey’s, fashionistas are flocking to their color pros for cool versions of slate, steel, violet and blue-grey shades. One of the most popular “grey-dient” approaches is balayage. A deep base gradually morphs into lighter tones on the mid-lengths and ends. For example, if the base is inky blue, the lighter sections may be pale blue-grey and blue-silver. If the base is deep violet, the ends could be done in variations of steely lavender.
RED/AUBURN/COPPER BALAYAGE HAIR COLOR: Think balayage is just for blondes and brunettes? Nuh-uh! It’s a gorgeous technique for redheads, too! Balayage provides the natural-looking dimension that redheads need, and the results are super subtle. For the most realistic results, your stylist will create a warm base color of auburn or chestnut, and then add balayage highlights in lighter tones of strawberry and toffee.
