Balayage: French Highlighting Technique

Lily Alderidge

Balayage is becoming the most popular hair coloring request in salons today. This is due mostly to the stylish Europeans and of course, the abundance of Hollywood stars that balayage is becoming the next big thing. The technique was invented in the 1970s, but it’s only recently has balayage begun to receive major attention.

The word ‘balayage’ means to sweep and is a freehand technique where the stylist are hand painting color mostly to the mid-lengths to ends of the hair. The technique offers a softer, more seamless color that grows out more naturally. It is perfect for those who are looking for something low-maintenance as balayage creates depth and dimension and results in sun-kissed looking hair. Whether you’re looking for something soft & subtle or strong & dramatic, balayage (at the hand of a trained colorist) is suitable for almost any look.

Balayage looks it’s best when it’s finished in a beachy, loose curled look or finished with our signature La Mode Blowouts.

Summer Hair Trends to Watch Out For

Barbara Bui S/S 2013

Wet Look
From sleek & polished to tousled & textured, wet-look hairstyle is making a major splash into this summer season. While everyone else is reaching for the sea salt spray to attain beachy waves, why not do the opposite and stand out. The wet look is all about looking effortless; it’s like you’ve just stepped straight out of the water and moving on to your busy schedule. To make this look much more wearable, only have the top look wet and slicked back to give focus to your face.
How To: Blow dry hair to 50% dry. Then apply Bumble & Bumble’s BB Gel starting from the roots and slick back to the ends. Let hair air dry.

Karlie Kloss – The Chop

The Chop
Popularized by Supermodel Karlie Kloss, The Chop has already been named haircut of the year. This swingy, one-length cut is lightly layered just enough to give it some movement. Adding some side-swept bangs to the mix, we have a cut that is flattering and low maintenance.
How To: Ask your stylist to customize The Chop to your facial features.

Rochas S/S 2013

Low Ponytails
The ponytail never goes out of style, but it’s about time we put a bit of style into our ponytails. The Low Ponytail rests just below the nape. It is a hairstyle that has an almost nonchalant quality.
How To: Blow your hair out with Bumble & Bumble’s BB Straight. Flat iron your hair if desired. Tie hair back into a ponytail below the nape. Allow a few wispy pieces of hair to frame the face.

Deep Side Part

Deep Side Part
While center parts still have a special place in our hearts, it’s time to delve into deep side partings. This trend has been popular the last two years but is finally beginning to break the surface of mainstream. By giving yourself a deeper side part, you are able to soften your facial features.

Platinum Blonde

Platinum Blonde Hair

Platinum hair is the hardest to maintain but it also makes the boldest statement. It’s always a good idea to change it up with the seasons, and going blonde for summer is the perfect opportunity to do so. If you have cool skin tone, you should be able to pull it off. Platinum hair will get you noticed.
How To: Consult your colorist as going platinum is a process and not every individual can attain the color.
