Sal Marchese of Salon Marsal (salonmarsal.com) shares his tips and techniques for baliage, a technique where a colorist uses a brush to paint a thick mixture of lightener onto a section of hair in one of three paint designs. These designs—singles, slants, V and W use a “sweeping” motion to apply lightener from thin at roots to thicker towards the end.
My recommendations for the tools I use are: mixing bowl, paddle, color brush, talc powder, clips and Eugene Perma Compacte Bleach, which can only be purchased through TruBeauty Concept out of Pennsylvania(888-371-5040).
Sal Marchese travels throughout the United States teaching the baliage technique. To inquire about these classes, visit the salonmarsal.com or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
