Example of ‘True’ Balayage application. In yesterday’s post I harped on (and on) like I do about the misuse of the the term. Anybody who has done workshops with me knows I’m very cautious about the B word.
The reason isn’t to attack anybody for their interpretation, honestly. More so to open a conversation about how in fact most ‘Balayage’ images our clients bring in aren’t Balayage at all. And if we close off our minds to that particular technique instead of dissecting other elements of a look we limit the results we can get. Get me?
Scope out yesterday’s look and see can you identify to different techniques used. 🧐
‘True’ Balayage is;
• Painted root to tip. Not. Just. The. Ends.
• Roughly 15 sections, usually triangle with saturation emphasised on points you wish to contour.
• Not woven. If you weave, that’s freehand highlights girl.
• Is not put in a packet or foil.
To all my lovely clients; I am not going to apologise for the inconvenience as I did not invent snow. Our safety is as important as yours However I will graciously thank you for your patience . Genuinely. I know this week was a particularly busy one and a lot of you will be disappointed having your appointments cancelled.
Fear not, we should be back up and running in the next few days where I will try my best accommodate as many of you as I can. The rescheduling however is up to you, and I urge you to keep an eye on our social media platforms so you can rebook as soon as salons are open.
In the mean time keep safe, have a drink, watch Netflix and look after each other
