French Balayage


French Balayage

As the masters of balayage, our celebrity and runway stylists love to create looks like model Miranda
Kerr’s sexy highlights which are achieved with the hand painted French technique. “Miranda’s hair is a
modern take on a classic 1960’s Brigitte Bardot graduated cut. By adding subtle highlights with
balayage, it gives the rich brunette shade extra shine, volume and softness”, says MLD Creative Director
Leon Gorman




The latest look in manicures as seen on the international runways is about making a dramatic statement with logos, bejeweled accents, color and even cut vintage inspired pattern plays. Of, course you could also just go the chic, classic route with a timeless French polish or a rich sexy red.
