You don’t have to spend a fortune to get perfect beachy waves. In fact, all you really need is the right haircut and some strategically placed highlights. Enter: balayage.
This highlighting technique is perfect for creating natural-looking sun-kissed locks. Best of all, it’s a low-maintenance style that looks great whether you’re rocking a messy bun or a sleek blowout.
Wondering how to get the look? We asked Los Angeles-based hairstylist Clariss Anya for her best tips on creating beachy waves with balayage. Here’s what she had to say:
1. Location, Location, Location
The first thing you need to consider when choosing a hair salon is location. If the salon is too far out of your way, you probably won’t go as often as you’d like. And if it’s too close to your house, you might be tempted to pop in for a quick trim when you really should be doing something else with your time (like spending time with your family!).
The best location for a hair salon is somewhere in between—close enough that it’s convenient, but far enough away that it feels like a special treat.
2. Price Matters...But Not Too Much
Let’s face it: we all have budget constraints. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality when choosing a hair salon. Just because a salon is cheap doesn’t mean it’s good, and just because a salon is expensive doesn’t mean it’s great.
Do some research online and read reviews from other customers before making your decision. You’ll quickly get an idea of which salons are worth their price tag and which ones are overpriced.
3. Experience Counts...But So Does Innovation
When choosing a hair salon, you want to find one that has stylists who are experienced and knowledgeable. But you also don’t want them to be so set in their ways that they’re not open to trying new things. The best salons strike a balance between experience and innovation. They have stylists who know what works and what doesn’t, but they’re also always experimenting with new styles and techniques.
This ensures that you’ll always get the best possible service—no matter what type of haircut or style you’re looking for.
4. Ask Around
Finally, don’t forget to ask around! Talk to friends and neighbors and see if they have any recommendations. Once you’ve narrowed down your options, you can also read online reviews of local salons to get an idea of what others think. By following these tips, you’re sure to find the perfect beauty salon for your family!
Choosing the best hair salon doesn’t have to be difficult. Just keep these three tips in mind and you’ll be sure to find a salon that everyone will love!
