Summer Balayage


The Hottest Summer Balayage From Louise Fudge Colour Specialist Salon, Heswall

Let's get one thing straight - balayage is a top trending hair colouring technique no matter what the season! However, summer is the perfect time to try a beautiful sun-kissed balayage, beach babe colour melt or buttery blonde hue.

We LOVE this freehand colouring technique which is where colour is swept onto the surface of the hair. This gives a natural glow as if your locks have been kissed by the sun rather than following a strict sectioning pattern using foil highlights. Better still, balayage is a low-maintenance hair colour meaning you avoid the inevitable, obvious root grow-out.

Read on for what the colour specialists at Louise Fudge hair salon in Heswall, Wirral predict will be the key balayage trends for summer 2023...

You can see some of our work below and there are lots more examples of the latest balayage looks via our Instagram page.

Sandy Colour Melt

The colour melt technique, also known as root stretching is where our hair colour specialists can ‘stretch’ your roots and add multi-dimensional shades, growing lighter towards the ends of your hair for an on-trend look. The benefit of this look is that it creates a beautiful gradient from root to tip.

Rock a warm, sandy colour melt teamed with effortless mermaid-style waves to get that 'just been to the beach' vibe.
