Are you ready for Balayage 2.0? Laura Gibson, @lgibsoncolorist, L’Oréal Professionnel Artist and SalonCentric Ambassador, is all about Balayage Ambré—bespoke color results that combine warm and cool tones. Balayage Ambré is a new L’Oréal Professionnel Balayage Method that uses INOA ammonia-free permanent hair color’s perfectly balanced cool and warm shades. Balayage Ambré can be done by combining the warm and cool tones in a single formula; by applying a warm or cool tone to the base and using a contrasting tone for the highlights, or by placing two shades—one warm, one cool—side by side. 

Here’s what New York color expert Suzie Bond relies on for every color service.

When creating Ambré, Suzie Bond, owner of Bond Beauty in New York, chooses L’Oréal Professionnel INOA, for a number of reasons. “INOA is one of the highest performing hair colors I’ve ever used,” says Suzie. “It does everything—grey coverage, highlighting, single process. Clients love it because it’s fragrance-free and ammonia-free, and the durability is incredible.”
