Top 5 Tips For Balayage Haircare, According to The Mandarin Salon’s Breno Santos


Balayage, derived from the French word for "to sweep" or "to paint", is a technique beloved for its natural-looking highlights through hand-painted application technique. When done and maintained right, it mimics the look of a sun-kissed allure that seamlessly blends into your natural hair. Here, Breno Santos, renowned stylist and Creative Director of The Mandarin Salon, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, shares his expert tips on keeping your balayage vibrant and healthy, ensuring your hair remains as stunning as the day it was styled.

1. Moisturize

To maintain the balayage looking healthy and beautiful, make sure that you keep the ends moisturized always. Choose a serum or oil of your preference.

2. Use Heat Protection

Use heat protection in order to ensure the colour last longer and if possible, always reduce heat damage.

3. Silk Pillows

Silk pillow cases are also great not only for your hair but also for your skin.

4. Avoid Hot Water

Avoid washing your hair with hot water.

5. Regular Salon Treatments

Return to the salon for more intensive treatments every 15/ 20 days max to ensure quality of hair. The type of treatments we perform at the salon will always change according to the hair needs, creating balance between moisture and strength.
