At Wiles Studios we create some of the best balayage & ombre hair colours in Northampton. If you are looking for a beautiful, low maintenance hair colour, book in for a complimentary consultation with one of our colour experts.  We will discuss the look you desire and come up with a plan to give you an amazing bespoke balayage that suits you perfectly.

Not sure what balayage is?  Balayage comes from the French word meaning ‘to paint’ which is exactly what our expert colourists do. Highlights are usually hand-painted throughout your hair to create a sun-kissed look which flatters your face through careful placement and application.

Traditional foil highlights are becoming a thing of the past, they have such an 80s look and certainly not something the modern woman wants.  So, when everyone’s asking you where you’ve been on holiday, remember to say Wiles Studios in Northampton!

Introducing Our New Refill Station

Single-use shampoos and conditioners are becoming a thing of the past as we all work together to do our part to help protect our planet.

At Wiles Studios, we are delighted to introduce our new Refill Station.  We invite you to have an in-depth consultation with one of our experienced stylists who can recommend the most appropriate Authentic Beauty Concept Shampoo & Conditioner for your hair type and needs. 

We will then put your chosen hair care products into 250ml retail bottles made from 90% Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic. The bottles also come with Forest Film labels (the first certified wood-based film label material on the market).

Once you have finished with the product, you can bring the bottle back to the salon to be refilled again and again!

The Best Balayage Hairdressers Near Me


Milton Keynes






Balayage is one of the most popular hair colouring techniques because it is low maintenance and creates a natural look.

Balayage has less noticeable root regrowth because the darker colour is usually applied nearer to the roots, matching your own root colour. This means you won’t have to come in for a touch up as often (although we recommend coming in every 6-8 weeks to keep it looking fresh!).

With the ombré technique there is a more obvious contrast between the hair colours used so you can almost see a demarcation line between the two chosen shades. 



Very often you will see balayage images of women with long flowing locks but balayage also looks fabulous on mid-length hair. 

Soft, beautiful balayage is a particular specialism at Wiles Studios in Northampton. We will bespoke your hair colour to enhance your cut whether that's a face-flattering bob or a longer lob!

Our hair colour experts will work with your haircut and natural hair growth patterns as well as the variance of tones in your hair, for a totally bespoke finish.

Because it's hand-painted, your Wiles Studio colourist can choose the placements to best complement your haircut, skin and features so it looks naturally coloured, unless you opt for a fashion colour balayage!




Blonde balayage and red balayage are among the most popular looks around right now. We offer the best blonde balayage from buttery blonde shades, golden honey tones to white platinum blonde balayage! 

When it comes to red balayage, the options are endless.  We can add very subtle contouring or give you a more traditional red balayage with darker roots becoming redder towards the ends.  The balayage technique works perfectly if you are new to colour, looking for lower maintenance looks or simply unsure about what to go for.

If you haven’t had your hair coloured before, or haven’t had it coloured by us within the last 6 months,  make sure to come in for a patch test 48 hours before your appointment.




Wondering how to upgrade your hair colour?  Balayage can be created on and with all hair colours, whether you have dark hair and just want some lighter colours applied, or you want a bold fashion hair colour or fashionable pastel hair shades. 

Smokey Lilac, Amethyst Purple & Midnight Violet colours were used to create this adorable balayage - making it the perfect way to transform your style and make a statement. 

Our colourists will also take the time to help you maintain your look.  

So there you have it, all you need to know about balayage at Northampton's top balayage hair salon!
