Balayage and Ombre will be Hot Hair looks for this Summer. Before you get head into the salon, you need to make sure you are asking for the right colour service.

Balayage and Ombre as hair trends have been with us for a long time now, yet there is still some confusion when it comes to these techniques.

Ombre is the more dramatic of the two effects. Here the ends or mid lengths are coloured in more a block or sold colour. This colour blocks mean that none of your natural hair colour is showing in these areas.

While Balayage is a more subtle natural, look with some of your uncoloured hair still showing in the areas that have coloured. We can vary how dramatic your hair colour result is, by altering the amount of hair we leave uncoloured. With Freehand French Balayage where we use special air developers from L'Oreal Professional we are to give you an even more natural look.

Balayage should be seamless. At St Kilda's Yoshiko Hair we boast the area's most Awarded Colour Team. With our work showcased on television, on stage and in print across australia and around the Globe. Using Freehand, Foils and Sweetmeche techniques along with Smartbond and L'Oreal Professional. With a free consult at st Kilda's luxury salon Yoshiko, we can help determine which look is best for your facial features and lifestyle.

As we head into Winter at Yoshiko Hair we predict  the emergence of Bolder Hair Colours. Add colour to your hair to maintain a healthy look over the cold months.

When Hass's client came into Yoshiko, her hair was in poor condition. Having been damaged by the incorrect use of heat tools, lack of use of good take home haircare products  and the summer sun. It was a must to use Smartbond from L'Oreal Professional. Which not only protects the hair during colouring but will improve the condition of the hair with every use..

This beautiful Georgia Peach colour was personalised by  Colour Expert Hass. He used L'Oreal Sweet Meches for a expertly applied  balayage. His clients facial features were enhanced  with Colour Contouring using on trend Georgia Peach hair colour.

Cut and finished by Hass using Shu Uemura where he is a member of their Creative  #Shucru. All the team at Yoshiko Hair are at the top of their trade. With members of the team regularly creating National and Colouring trends.

Colourful hair was once the realm of the Counter Culture. Not any more. Over the last couple of years we have seen colourful hair grow in popularity, with every day clients.  This summer we forecast that colourful balayage, along with strong block colours shall be popular. In demand will be pastels to strong fashion colours. Pinks, purples, greens and blues shall all be in vogue. With #colorfulhair @lorealpro @yoshiko_hair we are able to offer a professional range of fashion colours. This range of colours as tested in the salon and around the globe has proven to be very long lasting. In some cases far exceeding the claimed 17 washes. Used in conjunction with #smartbond and L'Oreal Blondes we have had some great results playing with this product in our St Kilda salon.
