Beachy Balayaged Bob. The triple B. Believe it or not, it’s one of the first haircuts our students learn here at JCI hair school. Our hair academy believes in staying up to date and on trend for our students and our clients.

This great summer look starts with the cut. Long, shoulder length or below the chin– start with the Bob. Add some layers for movement.
Then it’s all about the balayage- free-form, hand-painted highlights detailed to your layered cut. ‘Balayage’ is a French word meaning ‘to sweep or paint’.  Depending on your natural or coloured base, you can get caramel, toffee or golden hues added to your hair with our signature balayage techniques.

We are a Wella school salon and and use Wella’s famous lightener and ammonia-free colour for our balayage hues. Finish with a wand and some great beach spray and there you’ve got it: Beachy Balayaged Bob.
