1. Tease Sections of Hair
Once you’ve mapped out where you’re going to apply your client’s highlights, babylights and balayage, start gently teasing the sections with a fine-toothed comb. Don’t go back combing crazy – you’re simply fluffing up the strands in preparation for pre-lightener. We recommend never backcombing a section more than three times.
2. Add the Luminous Lights
Next up, apply your pre-lightener. We recommend Blondor Freelights for your balayage, because it has an adhesive mass that means it won’t smudge or bleed onto other strands. Then, use BlondorPlex for your client’s foiled highlights. Lightly brush these formulas over the top of the teased sections of hair. As for how many highlights and how much balayage, the choice is up to you and your client. Some like an even ratio, while others prefer a high volume of balayage with just a few face-framing highlights for more of a contrast.
3. Rinse, Tone and Glow
After the balayage and highlights have been lifted to the correct underlying tone, take your client to the sink and neutralize the hair lightener with Blondor Seal & Care. You may find those pops of blonde are already looking flawless, but often you’ll need to apply a toner over the top to personalize their shade. Use Color Touch for intense vibrancy and shine, Color Fresh for gentle color enhancing, and Illumina Color for sheer color results or Koleston Perfect for rich, healthy-looking color, Shinefinity Color Glaze tones with a beautiful shimmering veil of color with zero lift.
4. Wash Color Out and Neutralize
Finish up your client’s teasy lights service by washing out the toner with INVIGO Color Brilliance Color Protecting Shampoo. Neutralize hair using Wella Professionals Service Color Post Treatment, before drying and styling hair to perfection. Teasy lights are ready to go.
