The Balayage Phenomenon!

 What is Balayage?

In the 1970’s an exclusive salon in France created a ‘sweeping’ highlighting technique resulting in a natural sunkissed look. There’s a huge rise in popularity in recent times has become apparent and it’s safe to say Balayage is here to stay!

So why do we love Balayage so much?

  • Low maintenance
  • We can be creative as the client wants with any choice of colour
  • It’s fun

Of course, It’s not been overlooked in the world of celebrities with stars like Jennifer Anniston, Kate Beckinsale, and Jennifer Lopez, to name a few.

The Consultation

Your perfect balayage starts with a consultation. Bring some photos with you of what you have in mind, and also what you don’t want – this is crucial because every one can be different and your idea could be completely different to your stylists. You’ll also have a skin test so we can ensure you don’t have an allergic reaction to anything in the colour. All reputable salons will ask for a skin test because we care about your health

How to book Balayage Services At Jam Hair

We offer two balayage colour services Classic or Creative. Classic: Hand-painted pieces are scattered through the hair and applied thicker on the ends. There is no colour in the root area, which keeps regrowth to a minimum and makes it perfect low-maintenance colour. Creative: This technique takes longer and involves colour onto the scalp or a root drag. It’s really popular if you need to cover those pesky greys or you are changing the colour of all your hair. Cheat it: If you prefer not to have colour on your hair, have an allergy to hair dye, or would like to try a commitment-free colour change, you can also achieve the look with hair extensions.

 Love on one condition!

The secret to gorgeous hair is condition – the more porous the hair, the more the colour will fade and the less shiny your hair will appear. So make sure you use a conditioner every time you wash your hair and a hair mask at least once a week.

We love our Keune Hair Masque that not only protects colour and enhances shine but makes your hair feel amazing. These masques come in various formulas designed to target your specific hair requirements. We love them because of their essential minerals and unique oil blends, we can guarantee you will love them as much as we do!

Suicide blonde

Blonde hair can end up dry and brittle if not treated with extra love and care, this is why we as a salon simply adore our Bond Fusion Treatment which we incorporate into our colours upon request. This treatment protects hair whilst lifting and colouring leaving blonde hair, nourished and healthy. The team here at JAM never have their hair coloured without it as they know it makes such a difference!

Bye-bye brassy!

Remove brassy tones with our Joico blonde life violet range. This range of products consists of a violet shampoo, conditioner, and a violet smoothing foam. We love this range as it is sulphate free and neutralizes brassy yellow hues.

 Turn down the heat

If you simply can’t live without your heated appliances, drop the heat level settings as low as you can. Hot water and heated appliances can all contribute to colour fade, split ends or even breakage. Make sure you always use a heat protector and this one is an absolute must-have product, Joico Iron Clad! Honestly, it’s just our favourite heat protector as it doesn’t leave the hair damp or sticky, just super shiny.

Hair Extensions At JAM HAIR


Hello my name is Kate and I would love you come in for a free consultation to show you how hair extensions can create amazing looks and styles, giving length, thickness or even just adding some splashes of colour, so pop in soon or book a free consultation with our online booking as I can’t wait to meet you. 

Our prefered brand is fabulong as its high quality, 100% human hair is defined by one very important characteristic: cuticle alignment. During the harvesting of each bundle, we ensure that all of the cuticles in each strand of hair are facing the same direction. This seemingly minor process makes all the difference when it comes to quality and maintainability, as it minimises friction between the individual strands of hair which, in turn, prevents tangling, the tips are small and made with a synthetic polymer compound and work beautifully with our tiny strong copper (available in 13 different shades to match all root colours) locks for a flawless finish, unlike micro rings the locks are much smaller and not silicon lined so lay completely flat to the hair. The hair is made from the finest healthiest hair, the hair has not been treated with harsh chemicals and all the cuticles in each strand are aligned in the same direction.

No Sewing No Glue No Heat No Plaits

This hair extension method causes no stress or damage to your natural hair.


Tiny Tip extensions are reusable and can be refitted up to 3 times when the correct aftercare is followed. Hair is easily removed and can be refitted with new copper locks.

Colour Ring

We offer a huge range of colours to make sure everyone’s hair can be matched, in total there are 33 solid colours 23 mixed colours and 16 stunning new Ombré shades.
