When it comes to sweeping balayage on brown hair, a pre-lightener is always needed to ensure those lighter ribbons truly shine. Keep these rules in mind for every transformation…
1. Brighten with Blondor
When adding highlights, try a pre-lightener designed for freehand painting, like Blondor Freelights. It features an adhesive mass, which ensures it goes exactly where you want it to go and stays there. You could also try mixing it with our bond-strengthening system, WellaPlex, which will keep the internal hair bonds strong throughout the coloring process.
2. Tone to Perfection
Once you’ve reached the desired level of depth – typically two or three shades lighter for a more natural finish – you’ll need to tone your client’s highlights to reach their perfect color. Try permanent hair color like Koleston Perfect for a pure-pigment, high-shine finish, or demi-permanent hair color like Color Touch if they’d like lower-commitment brown balayage that fades beautifully.
3. Condition and Care
Post-colour care is just as important as the pre-lightener and toner you apply, so make sure your client is equipped with products that boost their new hair hue. ColorMotion+ Color Protection Shampoo is the basis of a strong routine, infused with antioxidants that protect against shade-fading free radicals. Then, ColorMotion+ Moisturizing Color Reflection Conditioner will pamper strands to their shiny best, so balayage on brown hair will positively glow.
