Balayage & Shatush

What is it?

Shatush is a free-hand technique that involves backcombing sections of hair before colour is applied, so that only part of the hair is exposed. Similar to balayage, the result is a soft transition of colour from root to tip.

The French word ‘balayage’ means ‘sweep’ or ‘paint’. It’s a highlighting technique whereby dye is painted on to the hair to build soft contrasts and a gentle, graduated effect from root to tip.

Balayage can be used to achieve natural, sun-kissed results on any hair colour. Your colourist will use your hair’s natural fall and variations in tone to create a fresh, effortless look that is unique to you.

Balayage is applied freehand and is suitable for most hair types. It’s quicker than foil highlights and needs less maintenance, as your hair should grow out without any obvious lines.
