All You Need To Know About Foilayage

Foilayage Vs Balayage At Hair Lab Hairdressers In Basingstoke & Woking

Looking for the best foilayage in Basingstoke & Woking? Our hair colour experts have compiled a handy guide to explain the difference between the various hair colour looks. 

‘Foilayage’ at Hair Lab hair salons in Baskingstoke & Woking deliver a perfect blend of balayage & traditional highlights for brighter, lighter results. Foilayage is often mistaken for balayage, ombré, root stretch, babylights, reverse balayage, melting, or smudging. While all methods are variations of creative colouring they deliver different results. Foilayage involves the same sweeping method used in freehand balayage, however, sections of hair are then wrapped in foil highlights instead of being left to air dry. The highlights are often a light blonde colour and applied to the hair in V shapes to ensure a natural root effect which doesn’t have an obvious regrowth line as it grows out. You can expect results to last around 6 months before a top-up is needed. 

Please note: You will require a quick Allergy Alert Test (patch test) 48 hours prior to your hair colour appointment.
