Think of foilyage as the lovechild of balayage and foils. We use the same hand-painted technique to apply the color, but then use foils to intensify and accelerate the lightening process. This results in bolder, more-defined highlights that give you a sun-kissed effect that looks like you spent the summer on the beach.

How long will it take?
Foilyage typically takes two to four hours depending on the length and texture of your hair, as well as your desired look.
What is the process?
  1. Personal consultation – Your stylist will discuss your vision, assess your hair condition and create the perfect foilyage plan tailored to your style and preferences.
  2. Sectioning – Your hair will be divided into sections for precise color application, focusing on areas where sunlight would naturally lighten your hair.
  3. Color application – Using a freehand technique, your stylist will hand-paint the sections crafting a seamless blending of color.
  4. Foils added – Foils are strategically placed to boost and quicken the lightening process, creating vivid highlights and dimension.
  5. Processing – Your color will be left to develop, but your stylist will monitor you regularly to make sure you achieve the perfect hue and tone you are looking for.
  6. Rinsing and styling – Your hair will be washed, conditioned and styled to reveal your beautiful, beachy foilyage look.
How should I maintain and care for my hair?
Protect your gorgeous foilyage by nourishing and moisturizing your hair with a sulfate-free, color-safe shampoo and conditioner. (Bonus points for adding a weekly deep conditioning treatment or hair mask to your routine!) When styling, use a heat protectant, minimize the excessive use of hot tools and avoid washing your hair too frequently.
