Alisha at Design 1 South shows her technique for an adorable beach wave style!

Balayage PicLike most of our recent clients, you might be wondering the exact same thing…”What’s with the saran wrap on her head over there?”:)  Well…Balayage is making its comeback ladies and let me tell you why.

All across the fashion world, from celebrities on the red carpet to runways, we are seeing soft, natural, and beautiful hair.  Balayage, the french word for: to sweep or paint, can give you just that….a soft hand-painted look.  Many Stylists around Grand Rapids and around the globe have stopped their 3,000 foil marathons and switched to Balayage.  We at Design 1 Salon Spa decided if this is something we were going to transition ourselves and our clients to, we wanted the very best.  Our search lead us to Candy Shaw whose nicknames “the Balaylama”.

Candy Shaw has been in the beauty industry for over 30 years.  She describes Balayage as “the little black dress’.  It isn’t going away any time soon!  It’s a revolution in the hair industry.  Candy Shaw along with her very very own, amazing Balayage hair lightener, called Sunlights, had all the answers to the “why’s” of Balayage that we had been searching for.  It gives each Stylist the artistic ability to create something customized for each client.  It is also more gentle on the hair because of its clay based formula that sits on top of the hair, not actually penetrating through.  It can lift rapidly while leaving your hair smooth, silky, and conditioned.  One of our very own Stylists at Design 1 South had the privilege of going and training with “the Balaylama” herself, becoming an educator for Sunlights.  Since then, each of the Design 1 locations have had hands on, true original French Balayage, training.

As Stylists, we have been loving the free reign we have to create a signature look for each of our clients.  The possibilities to your next color are endless!  So…if you are ready to get your very own “Victoria’s Secret Model”, sunkissed hair today, please visit one of our Stylists at one of our four locations.  You will fall in love with this customized technique just for you, just as much as we have!
