BALAYAGE HAIR PAINTING
Originating from France and known as one of the oldest forms of highlighting, balayage is the most current trend in the haircare industry. The technique is painted on the hair, blended from the root throughout the mid lengths with the color more saturated on the ends. The final result is more natural looking and has a softness that is unachievable with foil highlights.
The technique is freely painted into the hair. It requires true artistry and talent. This visual approach to balayage highlighting is easier to retouch and less stripy than other methods. The appearance looks more sun-kissed and natural, and therefore grows out better. Ultimately, this means less maintenance and less damage to your hair over time.
OMBRE HAIR COLOR
While balayage is the technique in which the hair color is applied, ombre is a style of balayage defined as “being graduated in tone”. Ombre is traditionally known for the root area beginning a darker shade, then fading into a lighter color as it reaches the ends. The gradation of dark to light varies depending on the ombre you are trying to achieve. It can range from a more natural and beachy look to an edgy, more contrasted style. Prices for an ombre look start at $250.
For a more dramatic ombre, it may take two color sessions to achieve the desired look without compromising the integrity of the hair. While you may have to visit the studio multiple times within a few weeks to create your desired ombre, afterward your maintenance visits are anywhere from once every 3 months to once a year, which definitely makes up for the initial frequency. The low maintenance factor is one of the things that makes ombre such a sought-after style!

Our smoothing service is done with the f450 Amino Fusion Smoothing Treatment, which uses amino acid technology as the main component to straighten the hair shaft. It is 100% formaldehyde-free, and requires no “curing” period. Without needing to wait for a curing period, you are free to wash and style your hair as usual after the service is complete. Schedule a complementary appointment with us.
WHO IS IT FOR?
This treatment is perfect for rebellious, frizzy, wavy and curly hair. It tames unmanageable and unruly hair into a wash-and-go style, perfect for those with high-maintenance hair seeking a low-maintenance hair style. This service is ideal for professionals, busy moms, jet-setters and everyone in between. After the treatment, your rebellious hair will look effortlessly smooth, sleek, and totally fabulous.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
In comparison to traditional straightening treatments of the past, the f450 creates a smoothed-out version of the hair you already have, which means your hair is not going to be “stick straight,” but retain a style that still has great body and movement. Initially, the treatment may make your hair very straight, since it is applied to the full length of the hair (including roots). After a couple washes, the roots will relax and for most hair types, the natural body of your hair will return. The final result is similar to what you would expect after you’ve had a great blow out, but without all the stress of round brushing and heat styling, your hair stays healthier much longer than it normally would. With the f450 Amino Fusion Smoothing Treatment, you can expect to let your hair air-dry and have similar results to a blow out. If you have bangs or want extra volume in the roots, you may want to quickly dry those areas with a brush and hairdryer, but compared to a normal styling regimen, this is a great compromise!
MAINTENANCE AND CARE
Maintaining and caring for your hair once it has been straightened is easy, but it is still a commitment. After investing in the smoothing treatment, you want to be especially careful to avoid sulfates in all your haircare products. Use sulfate-free shampoos, conditioners, and styling products. You’ll also want to be sure to keep your hair protected from saltwater, swimming pools and hot tubs, since the salt and chemicals in the water can also have a damaging effect on the smoothing treatment. At Morphic, we sell several products that are made specifically for treated hair to prolong the results of your smoothing treatment and protect your hair. Let us know what you need and we will point you in the right direction! If you properly care of your hair, the f450 Amino Fusion Smoothing Treatment will last for up to 12 weeks. The Smoothing Treatment has a light scent, characterized by a blend of blue agave & citrus, with a hint of vanilla.
