Our Twisted Team keep upskilling and educating ourselves on a wide range of applications and techniques available. The uncapped level of styling and creativity is a big reason why Brisbane women are huge fans of the foil. A far cry from the days of streaks and that barbaric streaking cap. If you would like to add highlights and lowlights to a colour appointment, there is more than just the standard half head/full head applications.

WHAT IS BALAYAGE and how do I pronounce it?

Balayage is a French word that means “to sweep”. Contrary to what most people think, balayage is not a look, it is a technique. The process of adding highlights that are hand painted or “swept” on the surface of specific sections of hair.

Oh, and it’s pronounced bah-lee-ahge.  This technique has been mastered by our team and looks best on hair that has a soft curl finish, remember this if you are more likely to wear your hair straight.


Also French, meaning shadow. This is a lived-in look and can be created in any hair colours, on shorter and longer lengths.  The hair is shadowed at the root, with highlights towards the ends of your hair. Our Twisted Team create many Ombre colour combinations from delicious chocolate to caramel or blonde to lavender.

Ombre hair is in great demand and is a superb opportunity to express yourself and add that very special extra glow to your style. Most women choose to have ombre because it’s considered very beautiful, low-maintenance and can fix some hair issues.  For example, disguising damaged ends.  When our team professionally deliver an ombre hairstyle, the ends really do appear thicker and the rest of the hair more dimensional. The eyes look brighter, and the skin appears younger and fresher.

Whether you’re going for a high-impact blonde, adding texture and dimension, a root re-touch, or creating a ‘lived-in’ look that is a lot lower maintenance, the different ways to colour hair with foils are constantly improving and evolving.  We pride ourselves on being a highly educated team and are always ready to wow you with the latest techniques.  Our goal is to make sure you leave with a spring in your step, your new hair colour personalised to match your skin tone, eye colour and lifestyle.

Being blonde is a commitment, and if you want to be turning heads for all the right reasons, then you need a blonde specialist to get it right. Our team are highly trained both on base and off base – chasing the latest techniques and sourcing the best products to ensure that your hair is strong, shiny, and touchable.

Blonde hair has the most delicate hair structure, yet, despite this, our colourists must guarantee perfect hair quality and spectacular colour results. Therefore, we choose Schwarzkopf BLONDME for superior blonde hair quality, even in the most demanding of situations.  It is powered by the Bond Protection System and helps us overcome any blonde challenge.

We also use and recommend Olaplex for extra strength and to maintain the integrity of your hair.  This powerful combination with our highly educated Blonde Specialist team is the reason Twisted Desire is known as the Blonde Experts.  Clients travel regularly from the Sunshine Coast to our family-based hair salon, for their Twisted Experience, and leave with luscious locks that last and have great tone until their next visit.  Our local ladies in Corinda, Indooroopilly, Jindalee and Oxley highly recommend our team on social media, and through local community groups and we are so grateful to them for trusting us with their hair.
