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.

The Balayage is a French technique of coloring the hair created to give dimension and depth to 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.

Even though Avant Garde offers laser hair removal, we can’t express enough how much time an individual gets from never having to pick up a razor, tweezer or wax products ever again. Laser hair removal breaks the habit of constantly removing unwanted hair all with burning the roots of the hair. Did you know that laser hair removal has three benefits we look over? The laser in the machine has the ability to be precise on locating dark coarse hairs while leaving surrounding areas undamaged. The speed of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. It can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. That’s quick! The best part? About ninety percent of patients have permanently removed the unwanted hair in three to five sessions!
The procedure can go from 15 minutes to an hour depending on the part of body you wish to remove. Speaking from experience, the laser feels no more than a rubber band slapping the skin. We have provided the best care in using cooling packs and medical advice to prevent bruising, blistering and that ‘sunburn feeling’ before and after your session. Packages are available as well as a la carte options.

Hello everyone, it’s been a while since we posted something on our blog. As you know Christmas and New Year is around the corner and that means gifts, resolutions and new changes. Though many of us know our “diet” for 2013 will end seven days our promise, we can count on hair to last for sure!
Miami makes it difficult for us to celebrate our winter in the snow and definitely points us out as Floridians when the beaches are too cold but that doesn’t stop the sun from damaging our hair. Here’s a few suggestions to start the Christmas and New Years like a new person:
Keratin Treatment: Take out the frizz from your hair and be proud that you can tame that lion’s mane! While every one is fussing over how to hold down their hair for just a few minutes, you can show off your beautiful strong hair in the sun without the beach hat! How to maintain it? Simple- Just shampoo and condition with sulfate free products. That’s easier than remembering you need to add a masque on ever week.
Chop off that hair: Who says long hair is sexy? Split ends, fading colors and countless time wasted on washing your hair to make sure it looks good and smells great… Yeah, doesn’t sound so beautiful anymore. There’s no such thing as a pixie cut that doesn’t fit anyone. Whether you want to slim your face or show it off to the world, pixie cuts range from almost bare to bob cuts.
Switch Colors: So what if you been a blonde all your life? Hair is not a tattoo, it’s not permanent! Go darker, go bold and make people turn around with jaw dropped to the ground. Don’t like it? Simple, we’ll remove it. No harm no foul.
With many options to change for the end of the year, it’s no wonder why salons, including ourselves, get so packed and crazy. Especially at the last minute. We want our clients to feel happy and having fun, knowing the passion we have for your hair is not only for your pleasure but for our happiness as well.
