  • Only visit a professional Salon: Get your balayage done at a professional salon, like an AVEDA salon such as KAPLANatelier.
  • Only use good quality products: Make sure that the products such as the colours or dyes used are of high quality. If you visit KAPLANatelier – AVEDA salons London you can ensure that only the best quality products touch your hair. 
  • Choose the right colours according to your features: Based on your face and complexion, choose the best colour combination and placement for you. Rather than copying someone else’s Balayage, choose what looks great on you.
  • Try not to do it yourself: Balayage is an easy process and doesn’t take much time, but that doesn’t mean you should give it a try at home. Whether it’s your initial Balayage or a touch up to your existing style, only work with an expert.

1.   Don’t forget to refresh it at regular intervals

A great way of keeping it look pretty and stylish for a long period is to refresh it regularly. And unlike roots, you don’t have to run to your salon every four to six weeks, all you need to do is use Aveda Botanical leave in treatment to look after your hair.

If you have Balayage highlights in your hair, a follow up can be done every three to six months.

2.   Taking good care of your hair to extend your Balayage:

Another easy way of making sure it looks fabulous all the time, is to take care of your hair. Now before you call us cliche, there’s a science behind it.

The healthier your hair is, the longer your hair will hold on to the highlights and colour in your hair. Use products such as Aveda Botanical shampoo and masque that strengthen and moisturise your hair and scalp.

3.   Know all the Do’s and Don’ts and follow them

While Balayage is a lot less forgiving than hair colours, there are still some do’s and don’ts that affect the life of your Balayage. Ask your stylist at KAPLANatelier, AVEDA salon, for a shampoo and conditioner recommendation that will protect your highlights.

Stay away from high heating tools to style your hair and avoid using hair products with excessive amounts of chemicals as they can damage your Balayage faster.

4.   Treat your hair with some extra love and care

One of the important steps that is necessary to maintain the moisture and hydration in your hair strands. Use a hair pack at least once a week to replenish your hair with the required nutrients.

Add quality products to your hair routine such as deep conditioners, hair oils, serums and hair masks – you can use AVEDA products. Doing so will make your hair more shiny and smooth and add a new bounce to your Balayage.
