Que es el Balayage?

El balayage es una tecnica francesa de coloracion del cabello creada para dar dimension y profundidad a los cabellos,

Que significa la palabra Balayage?

La palabra Balayage en frances significa” pincelada” y se denomina de esta manera  a esta  tecnica ya que se trabaja con la mecha suspendida y apoyada en una paleta, y se deposita el producto aclarante con un ligero deslizamiento de la brocha sobre el cabello.

Cual es el efecto que el Balayage crea en el cabello?

Contrastando con las mechas procesadas en  aluminio el balayage no tiene un patron repetitivo ni  lineas definidas, por lo que es recomendable cuando se busca dar a los cabellos dimension, profundidad y un efecto soleado natural en el cual las mechas se difuminan fusionandose con el color base.

Cual es el nivel de mantenimiento que requiere el Balayage?

El Balayage es una tecnica de relativamente bajo mantenimiento, considerando que no deja barrera entre el cabello procesado y el nuevo crecimiento, es hoy en dia una de las opciones mas convenientes para la mujer actual ya que no es necesario hacer un retoque a las seis semanas sino que se puede extender a ocho o mas y tambien jugar con un champu color entre proceso y proceso para reavivarlas y hacerlas lucir frescas otra vez.

Es el Balayage recomendable para todo tipo de cabellos?

El balayage siempre lucira mejor en cabellos naturales y largos, debido a la transparencia que cobra el cabello al ser procesado, y al movimiento que se puede crear  con un estilo playero de ondas grandes y relajadas. de todas maneras el hecho de tener un color preexistente no siempre es un factor condicionante, se pueden tambien lograr muy buenos resultados en cabellos que han sido coloreados profesionalmente en niveles no mas oscuros que un nivel cinco.

Es el Balayage compatible con otras tecnicas  de coloracion?

Dadas las caracteristicas del efecto que crea el Balayage en el cabello, es el complemento ideal para balancear un proceso de “Ombre” ya que ayuda a distribuir la luminosidad en areas como el marco de la cara  y la cuspide que de otra manera no seria posible hacerlo solo con la tecnica del “Ombre” ya que solo se trabaja en la parte inferior del cabello. Si prestamos atencion, en la actualidad, la mayoria de las modelos top y celebridades tales como Gisele Bundchen o Jessica Biel, son la viva imagen de una tendencia que vino para quedarse.

hair extensions :how to choose between the different options

 

Clip in Hair Extensions

If you are interested in a more temporary style or just want something that can be added or removed with ease, clip-in hair extensions are for you. Applying clip-in hair extensions only takes a matter of minutes so they are extremely easy to take on and off. Also, clip-in hair extensions require less upkeeping. They will also last longer than other methods such as adhesive tape, keratin and hot head strips. This of course depends on how frequently they are used.

As for types of clip-in hair extensions, there are many brands that come in all shapes and colors, high quality to cheap looking.Overall though, there are 2 general types and those are synthetic and real natural human hair. Synthetic hair is usually chosen thanks to it being price friendly. It is also a great way to try it on before investing in high quality natural human hair. Real human hair clip-in extensions looks real (because it is!) and also gives plenty of styling options. If you are serious about hair extensions, real natural hair is the way to go.

All our hair extensions are made with natural hair from India. We assure you your new look will be completely natural and no one will notice you are wearing them!

Keratin tip hair extensions

Our Salon offers so many options, when it comes to hair extensions, one question that always comes up is what exactly is a “keratin tip hair extensions”? To put it in simple words, they are hair extensions whose tip, as the name implies, have been dipped into keratin protein adhesive. This can be seen in the image above.

Keratin tip hair extensions are generally more expensive than other types of hair extensions due to keratin being what hair is naturally made up of. They are honestly the best you can get for a natural and healthy look.

Keratin tip hair extensions normally come in strands as the image above show. It is important to note that they adhesive used to keep the strand together is just for that, to keep them together.

To have them placed with your hair, it is strongly recommended you visit a professional salon. After all, this is your look you are investing it, work with some

one who knows! Remember, if the price sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is! The process of putting on keratin tip hair extensions can be a daunting and labor intensive job especially if you’re looking to do your whole head.

All in all, if you’re looking for the best of the best when it comes to hair extensions, most salons can agree that keratin tip hair extensions are the way to go. These offer the most natural and healthy look possible when trying to add volume, long sexy hair or simply to change up your entire look!

Hot heads hair extensions are another way to apply hair extensions which is a quicker way to come in and out of the salon with beautiful natural hair. Taking normally between an hour or two, your stylist will work with you to offer you a vision of a brand new you!

This is because they are placed within layers of your hair and with clear adhesive tape, you’ll be confident in your new look being what it is, natural!

strands of hair strategically distributed create depth,dimension and enhance light and movement of the hair.
strands of hair strategically distributed create depth,dimension and enhance light and movement of the hair.

 

What does the word Balayage mean?

 

The word Balayage in French means brushwork and thus is referred to this technique as it works the strand of hair while suspended and supported on a pallet wick, then the enlightener is deposited on the hair with a slip of the brush.

 

What is the effect created in the Balayage hair?

 

Contrasting with the wicks processed with aluminum foil, the balayage does  not have a repetitive  pattern or defined lines, so it is advisable when looking to give dimension, depth and a natural sunny effect in which the wicks are blurred by merging with the base color.

 

What is the level of maintenance that the Balayage requires?

 

The Balayage is a technique with a relatively low maintenance, whereas leaves no barrier between the processed hair and new growth, it is today one of the most convenient color options for women as it is not necessary to do a touch-up at six weeks but can be extended to eight or more and also play with a shampoo color between process and process to revive them and make them look fresh again.

 

Balayage is recommended for all hair types?

 

The balayage always looks better in natural and long hair, because the hair takes more transparency when processed, due to the absence of a previous artificial pigment  the movement can create a large beach style and relaxed waves. Anyway, having a pre-existing color is not always a determining factor, it can also achieve very good results in hair that has been colored professionally no darker than a level five.

 

 

Is it compatible with other Balayage coloring techniques?

 

Given the characteristics of the effect that the Balayage creates on the hair, it is ideal for balancing a process of ” Ombre ” because it helps distribute the brightness in areas such as the face frame and the crown, that otherwise would not be  possible to do so only with the technique of ” Ombre ” as it only works on the bottom of the hair.  If we pay attention, at present, most of the top models and celebrities such as Gisele Bundchen and Jessica Biel are the image of a beautiful trend that is here to stay.

Salon ,Miami ,Hair Make Over .

A butterfly doesn`t know how beautiful she is because she can`t see her own wings.

When a client walks into Avant-Garde hair Salon and Spa, what the world may look at is an aging woman with graying hair.
But no! This is not what our Salon and  master stylist’s see. They see a woman with a Make Over who will look ten years younger and leave with more confidence with her new Haircut and freshened Color as she walks out. Just like that butterfly, our stylists in Avant-Garde, Coral Gables, Miami, see something in her that she doesn’t even see in herself. Avant-Garde saw her wings.

The power the stylist’s have in their hands to change lives through a make over is truly profound. Avant-Garde ,Salon Miami, is not just doing hair but brings transformations to people`s lives. The moment our client walks out , realizing her incredible make over, she holds her head up high and spreads her wings to fly back into the world for another day-another six weeks, before she `s back in Avant-Garde stylist chair once again to continue exploring.

So, what about you? When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Now look closer… What could you see? So many of us live our lives on the surface of what is, instead of reaching out of the box for a little help to dig deep inside and discover what could be, and what better through our talented Make Over Beauty Consultant Professional’s to help you and eventually become not only your beauty partner but a friend. Do you see your own wings?

Stop just looking at yourself and begin seeing the kind of person you want to become and consider the changes you`ll need to make in your life to get there. Discover the beauty inside you. You may not be able to see your own wings, but in Avant-Garde hair Salon and Spa we promise, just like the butterfly, they are truly unique.

Life has so much to offer. Your hopes and dreams can come to life. There are only seven days in a week…”Someday” isn`t one of them.
