Peekaboo Highlights & Money Piece Colour

Looking to brighten up your balayage? Face frame hair colour aka peekaboo highlights & money piece colour can do just that! Your talented Be Beautiful colourist will expertly add an obvious section of contrasting hair colour (normally a lighter, blonde shade) to frame the face and accentuate your features. 


Foilayage is a great alternative to balayage. Foilayage involves the same sweeping method used in freehand balayage, however, sections of hair are then wrapped in foil highlights instead of being left to air dry. The highlights are often a light blonde colour and applied to the hair in V shapes to ensure a natural root effect which doesn't have an obvious regrowth line as it grows out. 

Choose from natural lived-in blonde hair colours, hazelnut tones, caramel hues or toffee colours.

Colour Melt Hair

Colour melt hair is also known as root smudge and shadow root. Varying shades of colour are overlapped to give a seamless transition of colour which gives the effect they have been melted into one another. Shadow root balayage is where a darker shade is added at the root area seamlessly blending towards a lighter shade at the tips.


An ombré hair colour is usually more obvious than balayage, so you can see the colour difference between the tones used. Ombré can be used to create a more bold look and looks fantastic with fashion hair colours. Ombré can even be reversed so that your roots are much lighter with dark ends.
