Balayage For A Brighter and Dimensional Design

Maggie Mulhern | January 23, 2017 | 4:27 PM

Sharon So, a Creative Director for Bubbles Salon and Cibu Hair Care, based in Towson, Maryland, says "This was a new client that came in and wanted brighter, cooler toned highlights. She didn't want to sit in the salon for hours."

Here So shares how she granted her wish with some dramatic balayage:

Step 1: Using the balayage technique, create shadows and lighter highlights in wide horizontal sections. Base color:  L'Oréal Professionnel Dialights 7 with 9 volume developer.

Step 2: To the lengths apply Mulitechniques powder with 40 volume and Olaplex. 

Step 3: Process for 45 minutes. Shampoo.

Step 4: Tone with equal parts Dialights 9.11 and 10.21 blended with 6 volume for 10 minutes.

"This client had been doing full foils for years, and her hair showed it," says Tiffinie Morton (@hairbytiffinie). "We had been working on getting her hair healthier and decided to try something new. She initially wanted to go to a warm level 5 but I talked her into trying this to ease her into being darker since she had been blonde for so long." Details here.
