This summer, it’s all about bold, dimensional balayage. HOW TO CREATE BALAYAGE THAT POPS! Don’t be shy when it comes to your balayage clients this season. Go bold! Here is a how-to from Adina Pignatare, @adina_pignatare, demonstrating her “triple threat balayage sectioning” which produces depth and bright blonde color. 1. Section the top layer of hair into five triangles, up and down. 2. Backcomb the conventional triangle sections and apply Redken Flash Lift Bonder Inside 40-volume to the non-backcombed tips, pressing the brush flat against the hair. Then use the back of your hand to press the lightener into the hair for maximum saturation. 3. On the inverted triangular sections, apply the lightener to the surface, feathering upward toward the roots and saturating the mids and ends thoroughly with a flat brush and the back of your hand. Maintain constant tension on the section as you apply the lightener. 4. Tone with new Redken Shades EQ Bonder Inside 010VV + 000 Crystal Clear. Redken Shades EQ Bonder Inside is the new all-in-one toner and bonder; use it to maintain clean, cool color and to strengthen compromised hair.
