Today was Balayage day, not only was it my first time getting these kind of highlights but was also the first time I’d had my hair done in Dublin. I was apprehensive but after speaking to Lucy at Style Club, I realised that she knew exactly what she was doing; I began to chill out. She told me she was doing Balayage in London 5 years ago and at Style Club since it opened in October last year.
I sat down and was given plenty of new magazines to read and as much tea as I could drink.
The first picture shows the regrowth from my last set of foil highlights before any new colour was applied. Photo 2 is mid application as Lucy was “sweeping” the colour in sections through the top half of my hair.
Phot 3 is the result… (I could give The Lion King a run for his money with all that hair!) It took about an hour and 20, including toner and a big-old, back-combed blow-dry. That is about 2 hours quicker than the last time I had a half-head of foils and I’m genuinely delighted with the result. (It cost €80 (+ tip)).
All new ombre hair.
