MAKEOVER: Balayage and Backcombed Weaves For A Power Blonde
Brandon Pate (@brandonandhair) of Cortello Salon, Jacksonville Beach, Florida, says his guest "started as a color correction one year ago and has been balayaged three times with lowlights and some highlights, mostly just around the face. At this appointment she decided she ultimately wants platinum balayage."
Here Pate shares the how he made it happen:
Step 1: Alternate balayage and hairpainting from backcombed weaves (alternating 1:2:1, respectively) throughout the hair, separating with meche paper. Color used:
Goldwell Silk Lift + 30 volume with Olaplex from nape to back of crown
Goldwell Oxy + 25 vol with Olaplex for the remaining hair
Step 2: Process for 10 minutes with heat and then 30 minutes at room temperature. Rinse.
Step 3: Gloss roots with Clorance 5mL 8BA + 10mL 8GB with 30 mL
Step 4: Gloss mid-ends with Colorance 10mL 10P + 10 mL 10V + 5mL 8SB + 5mL Clear with 60mL. Process together for 12 minutes.
