Award-winning Color

Janet St. Paul Studio has been awarded “Best Colorist in Austin” by Austin Monthly Magazine. Highlights is one of our signature services. Our talented stylists are experts at highlighting your hair so the style draws attention to the eyes. The effect is like having an uplight directing to your face.


Balayage is one of Janet St. Paul Studio’s specialities. This soft and natural highlighting technique produces a stunning, long-lasting result. This technique allows the client to go longer in between color appointments. Balayage is artful wave painting that gives an extremely natural appearance to the hair and leaves it looking luminous. In all of our work, including highlights, we keep concepts modern and chic with finished looks that are youthful and current.


3 What is balayage?

Balayage translates to “sweeping” in French. It is an artistic process where small sections of hair are painted against a hand-held backing board. The color (lowlights or highlights) is gently painted onto the hair by sweeping the strand of hair from root to end. After the color has been applied, the sections of colored hair are then separated and folded gently in plastic wraps and cotton as they process. The end result will give you a gorgeous appearance you’ll love: No severe line of color at the root, meaning the grow-out is much more natural looking.

Classic Highlights

Classic foil highlights may be your best option to brighten and restore radiance to hair. From a full-head, to face-frame, highlights can transform your hairstyle to create drama or a soft accent to draw attention to your eyes. Our stylists will create a look that is beautiful and elegant.

Whether classic highlights or balayage is right for you, our stylists have the ability to target precisely the look you want and avoid stress on the scalp through the therapeutic botanical products that are included in all our coloring services. If you have questions, feel free to give us a call!
