Colin Christopher, colorist at Salon Ziba in New York City, walks us through his signature balayage technique, "ray of sun." Using overlapping triangular panels, Christopher is able to create a soft, subtle glow in the hair and highlight textural accents. The formula used to create this look was L'Oreal Professional Platine Precision with L'Oreal Majicreme Developer, 40 volume

PRO TIP: "I prefer to paint with a two-inch paint brush with natural bristles from any local hardware store," says Christopher. Although these brushes don't last as long (approximately five-10 applications) they give a softer, more natural line of demarcation at the root."
