How to Up Your Ticket with Inventory You Already Have

The finished look by Sai Phetkhosa using Matrix color and Balay Powder.

According to Balay Powder, a quick balayage application using Balay Powder can easily be added to a color touch-up ticket, bringing more revenue to the salon/stylist.

James Gartner and Adam Swanlund are the product's founders, co-owners of Bii Natural Salon in West Dundee, Illinois.

"Balay Powder can be added to hair color and lighteners already a part of a salon’s inventory," Gartner says. "This makes the cost of application far less than that of clay-based lighteners that require their own dedicated developers. This saves money, and shelf s pace, in the professional back bar." 

Sai Phetkhosa (@hairbysaiphetkhosa) demonstrates a quick balayage technique with the use of Balay Powder. By adding Balay Powder to his favorite Matrix lightener, he completes the process in 20 minutes.

Watch the application here:
