Balayage Highlights


Blink and it will be summer. What better way to usher in the season of more light with... even more light! I teamed up with Balay Powder to produce a bright look that combines traditional foils with balayage. Balay Powder provides maximum lift and best consistency for color control.

In creating this look, I choose Flash Lift by Redken. I begins with a babylight weave foil application around the front hairline, so the brightest pieces will be around the face. I then paint the balayage between the foils, using my perfect-consistency Balay Powder and lightener mix. This will add an even more brightening effect to the overall look. The combination of the two techniques creates an ultimate balayage look, but with the added brightness and drama the foils create around the face.

You can utilize this easy technique of adding balayage between your traditional foils to create the ultimate light and bright trendy blonde for spring/summer. Balay Powder and your own favorite lightener will combine to make the process quick and foolproof.
