We know how you should dye your hair

The best way to be noticed around Castlegar is a new technique called balayage

Now that summer is here, balayage is quickly becoming one of the hottest hair dying trends.

This technique gives a sun-kissed look that, when placed correctly, highlights your features with soft, natural locks.

Balayage, a French word meaning “to sweep or to paint,” has been spotted on A-listers on the red carpet and is now available in Castlegar.

The hairstylists at Jagged Edge Salon specialize in the balayage technique. They will give your hair a boost to match the warm summer weather.

“We are experts in all different colours and styles,” says salon owner Laura Morrison.

Jagged Edge Salon was named Riverside Hair & Body Care until recently. Morrison, the new owner, welcomes new and returning customers.

In addition to balayage, the salon provides haircuts and styles, up-dos, perms, hair colouring and barbering.

Undercut art and designs, a popular new look, is another technique Morrison specializes in. She takes her client’s request and turns it into a work of art, with hair as the medium.

Jagged Edge also offers waxing and lash and brow tinting. There are plans to have an esthetician available soon to offer more beauty services, including manicures, pedicures and facials.

The salon uses re-usable foils, and carries a variety of non-alcohol hair products that are 100 per cent natural, biodegradable and not tested on animals.

Jagged Edge Salon is located at 2623 Broadwater Rd. Visit Jagged Edge’s Facebook page or call 250-365-1111 to book an appointment.
