Allison Lincoln @balayage.and.blush , a balayage specialist in New Jersey, had a guest with a lot of unwanted warmth.  "We had to try and breakthrough," Lincoln says. "That called for a full PAINT, along with lowlights for DIMENSION." 

PRO TIP: "Adding depth into blondes can make those light pieces POP. When blonde lies on top of a darker tone, it gives the illusion that the blonde is brighter and lighter.  This is also an excellent technique when trying to cut undesired warmth." 


  • Painted with Redken Flashlift + 30vol+ Olaplex No. 2.
  • Lowlighted throughout with Rekden Shades EQ 06N +07V.
  • Glazed with Clear+09B+08V+09T.
  • Finished off, as always with Olaplex No. 3
