As far as trendy Balayage and free form hair painting services go, I’ve fixed more than just a few botched heads of hair, belonging to customers that thought a “good” Balayage was an easy thing to come by. By the time it is all said and done, repairing someone else’s cheap work, yet still giving them the hair they originally wanted, is a VERY tall order. And… it can be an expensive one, too. Suffice it to say that this isn’t the best time to cut corners! I should mention, also, that I’ve managed to salvage a few “DIY” balayage faux pas, over the years as well, but most people know when they’re in way over their heads (no pun intended).
Do your research, and make sure that you are sitting in the chair of a colorist that will be attentive during your consultation. And…don’t be afraid to ask for pictures! If you aren’t absolutely positive that he or she can give you what you want, have her direct you to her social media page, so you can’t put your concerns to rest! Any good stylist will be happy to show you her work. You can find mine on Facebook, at A Cut 2 Dye 4, and on Instagram @acut2dye4.
