Are you considering the possibility of converting to tweed balayage and want to understand if it is right for you and what are the costs of this new technique?
What is tweed balayage
As the name suggests, tweed balayage is a balayage technique that involves lighter locks that do not start at half length, but that are getting closer to the roots. In this way, a luminous effect is produced that pervades the hair in a natural and fairly uniform way, without creating annoying chromatic detachments.
Just like sewing, the technique is applied to small strands in each section of hair, so as to enhance even the natural nuances. The bases are made lighter to complete the light blond locks, or they are highlighted less to fit a dark background. Being also a balayage with a natural and uniform effect, it does not require frequent appointments by the hairdresser.
Who is good at tweed balayage
The tweed balayage is therefore a recommended choice for those who are not trying to twist their look, but simply want to change it imperceptibly. This is not a radical change, but small improvements that on the whole illuminate and make the look of those who wear it more radiant.
Furthermore, as opposed to traditional balayage, it is not far from the roots, it is not only recommended for people with long hair. On the contrary, tweed balayage can prove to be a valid ally even for those who sport a short or medium length cut. The contrast is however more evident on light colors, primarily blond, copper and brown, while it is difficult to apply to raven hair.
How to make tweed balayage
The tweed balayage requires expert hands to be able to be realized in a natural way without smudging. For this reason, if you intend to show it off in the coming months, we advise you to make an appointment with your trusted hairdresser. As good as it can be, tweed balayage, even more than natural dyes, must in fact be made by someone who has a good command of colors and dyes and is able to choose the best shade so as not to create too bright a contrast with the root.
Regarding costs, they differ significantly from those of a traditional balayage. The final price clearly varies from salon to salon and depending on your city, but in principle it starts from a base of around 65 euros/dollars.
