What to Know About Balayage
Balayage is a French style of coloring hair in which the color is painted by hand to larger sections of hair without foil (rather than traditional foiling highlighting techniques) to create natural-looking, lived-in highlights with a less apparent regrowth line than traditional highlights.
Balayage gives the look of naturally “sun lightened” hair. Your natural color will remain at the roots, so your hair will have darker roots and lighter ends.
Balayage is a lived-in look that is lower maintenance, but it does require color refreshing between lightening services to look its best. This is the perfect treatment for those looking to mix up their hair color and add in extra dimension and texture. Balayage can also grow out naturally and still look good, if you’re not ready to commit to highlighting retouches every 6–12 weeks.

Expert Balayage in San Diegofor All Hair Types
With an educated and talented stylist, balayage hair looks great on blondes, brunettes, redheads, and everyone in between. Our San Diego stylists use a technique that utilizes highlights and lowlights to give a sun-kissed, multidimensional effect to any hair color, type, or length (except very short hair).
We can also combine balayage with babylights, which are soft, delicate highlights that add extra bright pops around the face. If you’re feeling playful, we can even blend in a splash of jewel-toned hair color, like purple or blush pink.
What to Expect at Your Balayage Appointment
It typically takes about 2–3 hours (depending on your hair length and existing color) for your stylist to balayage your hair. It can also take slightly longer if your stylist has to convert foil-highlighted hair to balayage.
Balayage allows a more blended and natural grow out than other traditional hair coloring techniques, which typically need to be retouched every 6 weeks. Many of our clients choose to come in for a gloss or glaze in between appointments to freshen up their existing balayage.
Balayage starts at $180+ for full head and is based on your hair’s condition, color history, length, density and texture and typically takes longer to perform than typical foil highlights.
During your service we will also recommend professional hair care products for you to take home to care for your investment in your balayage treatment.
The team that works there are not only amazing at what they do but also very fun and enthusiastic which makes every trip into something more than just a haircut.
She was so nice and gave me the best haircut of my life!
I was in San Diego last week for wedding and I needed to get my hair done for that night. I found this super cute salon close to our airbnb. It was a Sunday morning and I couldn't believe they were open! I was greeted by Brenda, one of the owners.She was so nice and gave me the best haircut of my life! I think I will need to make monthly trips to San Diego now to get my hair cut.
The new salon is sleek and modern, but also cozy, and all the staff I've met are terrific.
I've been getting my hair cut & colored by Cait Lukowski for several months now and she's amazing! She's really fun and sweet and makes sure she understands what I want. The new salon is sleek and modern, but also cozy, and all the staff I've met are terrific. I get lots of compliments on my hair, so I'm a happy (and well coiffed) camper!
