Root Stretch

A new and highly popular look trending right now

Hair is carefully blended by hand painting, ensuring a seamless finish Balayage highlights can be added to the service

Partial balayage

Another popular service that is highly fashionable

What is it?

Partial foils / highlights are painted in a freehand technique in specific areas on the head. Usuallly through the top layers and especially around the face. This is called a face frame, it highlights, defines and brightens up your face. This technique is subtle and natural looking, achieving more of a sun-kissed look.

Skin testing

Please note, all of our colour services with the exception of Elumen require an allergy test 48 hours prior to your service.
Reactions are rare, however it is paramount you are tested. You are welcome at any time into the salon, where our FOH team are fully trained to conduct the test.

Ombré (going)

A graduation on blending three colours seamlessly throughout the lengths of the hair. This is usual carried out by working a variety of depths within the hair, so can result in contrasting or subtle shades.

Goodwell’s gorgeous range of colours, gives you the perfect choice.

Balayage  (sweeping)

An ombré look, with highlights, placement is personalised, depending on look and requirements so we can tailor your look to you.

Looks can be bold and edgy or gently and subtle.

Working with Goldwell’s tremendous colour selection the choice is yours, resulting in beautiful blends of multi dimensional colour.


This is an extremely subtle version of ombré, working with less contrasting colours, but similar depths and varying tones. This works beautifully with Goldwell’s colourance range.


This is more of a look than a technique. Balayage techniques with or without foils, shimmer with alternating tones. Resulting in rich tones that are very subtle without changing depth greatly.

Baby lights/Flamboyage (micro lights)

A more subtle version than balayage. Using fine strokes or ‘weaves’ the highlights are placed around the hairline and the top of the head. Goldwell’s free hand pre-lightener is perfect for this, giving a beautiful natural result.
