Artego's Chad Siggers has mastered the art of balayage and was sharing his wealth of knowledge at the Premiere Show in Orlando, Florida. Modern stopped by to ask for a quick demonstration.

"Balayage is the perfect way to get an ombre finish," says Siggers. "Using a thick, heavy bleach, like Artego, allows the colorist to place the color and control application. It stays exactly where I place it and does not bleed through."

Siggers holds the brush flat, takes large wide sections and paints just the surface. The ends are saturated with color, both on top and under, and then the remaining color is diffused toward the top. The rounded brush allows Siggers to control application, and keeps him from placing any obvious squared off line of color placement.

Siggers offers a HOW TO do a balayage application in this 4 minute video, while dropping several tips and tricks to get a perfect ombre finish.

Alison Alhamed | October 1, 2017

Color Zoom 101: Every year, Goldwell releases a trend collection that is used as the inspiration for its annual haircolor and style competition, Color Zoom. Across the globe, Color Zoom starts on a national level. Beauty pros compete in three categories— Creative Colorist, New Talent Colorist, Partner Colorist—by submitting a photo of their interpretation of the trend. Once the Gold winners of each category are determined on a national level, they go on to compete internationally on behalf of their respective countries during a live recreation of the look on their model—including the hair color—in front of a judging panel and audience. The international leg of the competition takes place in a new city each year.
