Jack Howard Launches Beauty Works Balayage Range
Colour expert Jack Howard has launched a Beauty Works balayage range, in five of his most-requested colour ways.
Jack, who is international colour director at Neville Salons is widely credited with bringing balayage to the UK and has a host of A-list clients who demonstrate why he’s so in demand. Poppy Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Ana Beatriz Barros are just three of the names who rely on Jack to keep their colour looking fresh.
Now Jack is bringing his expertise to the world of extensions, with an exclusive range of Beauty Works extensions to recreate the must-have colour technique instantly.
The range can be applied in salon using the Double Weft System, or can be turned into temporary clip-in extensions to take away. Available in a variety of lengths and five popular shades, the 100% remy human hair is hand-painted to duplicate Jack’s signature natural, healthy, beautiful colour.
We caught up with Jack to find out more about the range…
What is balayage?
Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed, natural looking hair colour with less noticeable regrowth lines – the principal idea being, less is more when creating soft, natural looks.
Why did you produce a balayage range with Beauty Works?
I spend so much time colouring hair extensions anyway, it was just a natural progression. Each weft gives that lovely soft feel, rather than the stronger demarcations we have seen on the market up until now. This range shows my signature softer balayage colours in the finest quality hair available to salons and stylists. Many celebrities opt for the balayage colour technique as it gives an expensive looking finish – this range allows the customer to have the look.
What is the difference between ombre, dipdye and balayage?
Dip dye gives you a straight line between shades, ombre creates a shadow between your chosen colours, giving you a subtle finish and balayage is a natural looking highlight.
Is the trend going to be around for the long term?
Absolutely, as it always looks natural Balayage works across the seasons. I don’t see it as a trend so much as a technique that’s here to stay. It’s basically the modern, fresh take on highlights.
