1. Lift the Line
It goes without saying that regular trims – every six to eight weeks – are a must with a bob. But how do you also keep that breezy balayage looking fresh? Quite simply, by lifting the (subtle, seamless) line at every other appointment, shortening a grown-out root stretch by blending the lightener further up the hair shaft.
2. Get the Gloss
Another way of maintaining balayage is by glossing or toning the mid-lengths and ends. Try a Pure Glossing Service for clients in need of a quick fix; it can be done in the space of a lunch break. Not only will a gloss help to eliminate any unwanted brassy tones, but it will also pump locks with some much-needed shine and gently refresh the colour.
3. Share Top Tips
If your client is new to balayage, make sure they leave the salon with plenty of advice on how to care for their high-lights. Top of the list is a shampoo and conditioner routine that’s kind to their colour and prevents fading. For all shades, ColorMotion+ Color Protection Shampoo and Color Reflection Conditioner are both must-haves, while the INVIGO Blonde Recharge and Color Recharge collections feature targeted treatments tailored to blondes, brunettes and redheads.
4. Introduce a Colour-Depositing Mask
Here’s another essential for your client’s care kit: the colour-depositing Color Fresh Mask, which refreshes the tone and pampers parched strands in just 10 minutes. With 11 masks to choose from – ranging from punchy Pink and bold Blue to Golden Gloss and Caramel Glaze – there’s a treatment for every type of balayage bob. Their colour will stay salon-fresh for longer.
