Balayage & Ombré

Are you searching for a softer, natural-looking hair colour look? If yes, balayage may be the look you’re after! Balayage means ‘to sweep’ or ‘paint’ in French. The technique involves painting or sweeping colour on vertical sections through your hair for a sun-kissed look.  This is a great low-maintenance hair colour as your root regrowth will be less noticeable with balayage.  Another low-maintenance hair colour option is ombré which gives a more obvious two-tone hair colour with a more defined line between the two colours. Find out more about balayage at our Northampton hair salon here.

Highlights & Lowlights

Highlights or lowlights can brighten or darken your natural hair colour and add multiple tones and shades.  We use only the very best products from international colour experts L’Oréal to create bespoke hair colours. We can offer a multitude of colour choices from sun-kissed blondes, to vibrant redheads or chocolate brown lowlights.  If you’re feeling daring, how about a pop of pastel pink or silver grey highlights to add interest to your  hair colour?


There are multiple shades of brown or brunette to choose and our hair colour experts have the expertise to find a hair colour that will suit you. We also have many different colouring techniques, depending on the look you desire.  Highlights, lowlights and balayage tend to give more natural, subtle touches of colour to lift your base shade, while a full head of permanent hair colour creates an all-over shade that can be as dramatic or subtle as you wish, depending on the colour chosen.  


One of the most popular hair colours in the UK is blonde, with around 50% of women going a shade of blonde at some stage in their lives.

As you can see from the image, left, there are multiple different blonde shades available including platinum blonde, light ash blonde, golden blonde, honey blonde, dark blonde... and more!

If you want to go from a dark colour to a very light blonde, please bear in mind that this is likely to take more than one visit to achieve your desired shade.  We will need to assess your hair shade, type and condition before agreeing a course of action that will give you a beautiful blonde hair colour without ruining the health of your hair.

We can highly recommend adding Olaplex to your hair colouring process as this is designed to protect the integrity of your hair, keeping it strong and healthy during the chemical lightening process.  Find out more about Olaplex here. 



They say that blondes have more fun, but we reckon those redheads give their blonde counterparts a run for their money.  

As with all our hair colours, we can create many different shades of red from copper red, auburns, plums and fashion red hair shades.

For a more subtle hint of colour, choose some red highlights or a hand-painted balayage effect.  If you are feeling more daring, ask for a full head of colour.

Your colour specialist will also be able to recommend the perfect hair care products to ensure your red hair colour remains brighter for longer. 

If you are ready to enhance your natural red hue, or want to change your hair colour to red, please give us a call on 01604 622 408  or book online using the button to the right of this screen.
