Adding Depth to Highlighted Hair with Balayage
"Before"Photo By Nicole DeStefano Photo 1 of 3
Nicole DeStefano (@beautyhivebynicole), owner of the Beauty Hive Salon in Roanoke, TX knew she had to move slowly and carefully when suggesting a different hair color plan to her client. "When a guest comes in who has been getting highlights it can be an exciting and scary thing for them to add depth back into their hair. Transition them gently. This gorgeous client wanted a softer grow out and less brass."
Step 1: Apply L'Oreal Majirel 7.1 plus 20 vol to new growth and 25% grey
Step 2: Take a wide tooth comb and blend the color down.
Step 3: Lowlights in a balayage pattern leaving the ends out of the lowlight with Redken Shades EQ 07nw+ 08n
Step 4: Last 15 minutes between foils, tease hair left out and apply L'Oreal multi technique lightener and 9 vol.
Step 5: Rinse and apply Olaplex # 2 and work out the tease.
Step 6: Apply Pulp Riot Barcelona and heavily saturate for a lot of toning power.
FINISH: Blowout and curl
