Balayage coloring, the hottest new coloring trend

July 1, 2018

You know what they say… blondes have more fun :) Let’s talk about hair for a second! I’m a natural blonde, more on the dirty blonde side, but I’ve been getting balayage since high school. Balayage is a French hair coloring technique where the color is painted on the hair by hand as opposed to other highlighting methods. It helps give you a more natural effect with subtle transitions between the hues. I love how it brings out my natural highlights that I get from the sun, and gives my hair much more dimension, too.

Before NYFW rolled around I knew I would need to update my hair a bit. I did a bunch of research (as per usual) for salons in NYC that specialize in coloring techniques, and that’s when I found Roman K. Salon. Believe me, I do NOT mess around when it comes to my hair, and I had yet to find a salon in NYC to get my hair colored. I was still getting my hair done at home in Pittsburgh because I was so nervous lol. Roman K. Salon did not disappoint at all, and is definitely my new spot in the city. I loved it so much the first time that I just went back for a fresh Spring ‘do!

I visit Roman K. for my balayage, cut, and blowout when I need an updated look.  Tammy is my hair colorist, and I’ve gone to both Elizabeth and Scott for cuts and blowouts. I felt super relaxed and comfortable the whole time, and everyone was so sweet. You can find them on Instagram (here and here). Roman K. Salon is also on Instagram, and you can follow along to see behind-the-scenes at the salon and some finished looks.

Roman K. Salon also offers a ton of services and they also include champagne when you visit.  They offer haircuts, color, extensions, styling, nail services, facials, body waxing, hair treatments, makeup and even a few others! Definitely check them out the next time you need to be pampered or get your beauty services done!
