Hair stylists can meet the demand for a softer, more natural appearance with the art of balayage, which doesn’t require the traditional use of foil. Balayage is an alternative hair coloring technique that instills graduated color on the strands. If you are looking to sharpen your coloring skills, check out these ten tips for perfecting the balayage coloring technique.
In our beauty supplies inventory, we now carry the Pravana Balayage Kit! The Pure Light Balayage Lightener by Pravana makes the technique much easier and is designed to generate a sun-kissed, effortless, natural hair color. The lightener is great for processing color without drying or needing foil. It is made with a mixture of kaolin clay and rice flour to harden a shell around the hair, which insulates the lightener inside. It also has aloe vera in it that pairs with the activators to preserve the integrity of the strands.
For open-air hair painting, stylists then apply the Pure Light Balayage Activators by Pravana, which are different from traditional developers. The activators are formulated to react with the lightener to create the balayage effect. There are three levels – low, medium and high for a variety of timing and lightening options.
