Baliage: Not Just for Blondes!
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
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 [email protected].
