How Much Does Balayage Cost?

Balayage is a hair coloring technique where natural looking highlights are created.  Because of its overwhelming demand in the hair fashion industry, this service is offered at most salons.  You can choose to apply the highlights heavier for dramatic effects or you can also request to have the application done sparingly.  The highlights will generally last for about three months.

Was it worth it?  

  1. Nancy (Wichita,  Kansas) paid $200 and said:

    Local salon charged this and I thought the hair looks great.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  2. Colleen (Annandale,  Virginia) paid $200 and said:

    I was looking for root touch-up & a fresh cut. The process sounded nice, I assumed it would be similar to the cost of highlights – guess I should have asked first! Salon did a great job, hair looks great. Still shocked by the price. Might be worth it once a year or for special occasions.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  3. Vicky (Scottsdale,  Arizona) paid $165 and said:

    I rounded up to $200 with a tip. It is totally worth it. I do this every six months. It grows out so nicely and blends in grays without having to have a root color that grows out and gives a different root color.

    Was it worth it? Yes
