Balay Powder officiates at the marriage of foils and balayage
Blink and it will be spring. What better way to usher in the season of more light with... even more light! Balay Powder’s James Gartner suggests a bright spring look that combines traditional foils with balayage. Balay Powder provides maximum lift and best consistency for color control.
In creating his look, James chooses Flash Lift by Redken. He begins with a babylight weave foil application around the front hairline, so the brightest pieces will be around the face.
He then paints his balayage between the foils, using his perfect-consistency Balay Powder and lightener mix. This will add an even more brightening effect to the overall look.
The combination of the two techniques creates an ultimate balayage look, but with the added brightness and drama the foils create around the face.
You can utilize this easy technique of adding balayage between your traditional foils to create the ultimate light and bright trendy blonde for spring. Balay Powder and your own favorite lightener will combine to make the process quick and foolproof.
