What Is Balayage?

Balayage is a trending hair colour technique. This technique involves our skilled colour technicians hand-painting highlights throughout your hair. The roots of your hair will be left darker while the tips of your hair will be lightened.

Blonde balayage is the most popular hair colour for balayage as through this we can create naturally sun-kissed looks. Ask for face-framing highlights (also known as the 'money piece') for added brightness around your face.

At Headfirst, we are balayage specialists. We can create bespoke balayage hair colours for you using any hair colour from copper balayage to fun fashion coloured balayage such as silver balayage.

How Can I Get White Blonde Hair?

The most important thing to remember when going for a blonde hair transformation is that the best results take time - especially if you want a complete colour change from a dark brunette shade to white blonde hair.

Make sure to book a consultation at Headfirst Hairdressers in Leeds so our hair colour experts can discuss the process with you so that you know exactly what to expect. To maintain the health and condition of your hair, we may also recommend an Olaplex hair treatment during this process.

White blonde and platinum hair colour are not the only blonde shades available! At Headfirst, we offer a wide range of blonde shades that may even suit you more than white blonde hair colour. If you're not sure what the right hair colours are for you, just ask your colourist during your consultation and they can recommend hair colours to suit you.

Do You Do Fashion Hair Colours At Headfirst In Leeds?

Fashion hair colours come in any colour in the rainbow! Whether you would like a bright, bold hair colour to make you stand out from the crowd, or you would like a pretty, pastel hair colour that's a tad more subtle, we can do it all at our Leeds hairdressing salon.

Whatever hair colour your heart desires, our expert colour technicians would love to create for you at Headfirst Hairdressers in Leeds. If you've seen a picture of a hair colour you'd like us to recreate, make sure to bring it to your hair colour consultation.

What is a patch test?


A patch test (also known as an allergy test or skin test) is used to test for any allergies you may have for our hair colour products. Although it is unlikely that you would have an allergic reaction, we like to be on the safe side! You must come in for a quick patch test at least 48 hours before any hair colouring appointment. Just come in whenever, you don't need to book, as this will only take a few minutes where we will dab a bit of hair colour product behind your ear. Don't wash it off for at least 24 hours. If this causes any irritation, please let us know.

Can you cover up grey hairs with hair colour?


Yes, we can cover any unwanted grey hairs with hair colour. At Headfirst Hair Salon, our expert colour technicians can match your base colour to seamlessly blend away grey hairs. We can also help you go grey gracefully with a transitional grey hair colour.

Do you offer colour correction services?


Yes! If you've had a hair colour disaster, make sure to book a consultation with our hair colour experts at Headfirst Hairdressers as soon as possible.

What are the benefits of balayage?


Balayage hair colour is a low-maintenance hair colour that will blend in with your roots as the colour grows out. Not only this, but balayage also looks beautiful!
