We’ve all heard it: Balayage is a fad. It’ll be out the door just like the cap. Well let us tell you! Balayage is like the little black dress. It isn’t going anywhere! Not only do we need to be educated in balayage and techniques, but we need to educate our guests on what is truth and what is myth about this beautiful technique:
This is not true! Can balayage create a beautiful melted ombre? Of course! There are
so many other options for this technique, all it takes is a little education, practice and you’ll
be creating more than just a typical ombre. Click here to see how!
False! As with using Sunlights lightener, our clay lightener can give up to 7 levels of lift when your application is correct. You have the option of making a bold statement, or beautiful subtle highlights.
We all have those blonde clients who get out of the chair after the service and immediately look at their regrowth to see how close you were able to get those foils. With balayage, we paint right up to the scalp and hairlines. There is no foil line and nothing in between the lightener and your scalp. You can’t get much closer than that!
You can use as many different colors as you'd like! If you want to use a low light or multiple low lights, you can be as creative as your mind allows. Using the balayage wrap will help keep your colors separated and will act as a window for you to see your creation come to life. You can also balayage with fashion colors or only low lights. You do not have to use lightener. Remember, balayage is a technique, not a style!
Wrong! Balayage lightener is mixed thicker than your standard foil lightener. Because of this, you are only painting on the surface of the hair therefore not the underneath side will not have anything on it.
Now you know the differences between balayage fact, and fiction! Check out our Youtube for more techniques on balayage.
