Hand-Painted Balayage 

Balayage, Ombré & Sombré Hair Colour at Melanie Richard’s Hair Salon, PeterboroughBalayage is achieved using either a freehand colouring technique or foil highlights to achieve a sun-kissed effect. The roots are left a darker colour with colour being ‘stretched’ or ‘melted’ so that your hair is lighter at the mid lengths and ends.

This is a bespoke look that is tailored to each client’s hairstyle and personal requirements.  We can give you gorgeous hand-painted highlights in whatever shade works best for your complexion. Why not pop into our Peterborough hairdressing salon for a free consultation and chat to one of our skilled colourists about what colours would suit you best?

Balayage started off as a natural looking colour with caramel tones & creamy blonde hues being popular choices. It has now evolved to include more daring colours such as purples, reds & crazy fashion colours. We can even customise a take-home conditioning treatment to match your EXACT hair colour for you!
