Hair Painting vs Balayage

Started by Morine Bangle. Last reply by Bea Minor 12 hours ago. 9 Replies

Ok, folks....what is the difference between hair painting and balayage? They seem pretty similar in technique...although, hair painting does not use foil, cotton or saran wrap.  It also seems that the product is much dryer, almost 2:1 with…Continue

BGr as a highlight tone

Started by Lori Kassinger. Last reply by Lori Kassinger 21 hours ago. 14 Replies

So I've heard a lot of the colorists in my salon refer using BGr (Yes, from Deep) as a nice "beige blonde" highlight tone/toner. Anybody have any experience or thoughts with this? I'm also curious about the dye load/composition of this pure tone…Continue

Trash liners. The clear heavy ones. Sounds strange...

Hi Lupe! You said you and your team use liners.... what are liners? I too lose the battle with plastic wrap so would love to know what you are using in place of foils.

Cori, Thanks for sharing!!!!

I do not use plastic wrap... Every time I get in a fight with plastic wrap... I loose.

You can totally use foil.  Whatever medium you want to work on is up to you. My team and I (Jocelyn discovered this) use liners that are cut long, like a long foil. I like to see the hair processing through the liner. 

I like the heavy liner... easy to manipulate and doesn't fly around.  Try it out.

Abby Lynn i have these two rose gold formulas, i even left a few random 8yo peices through her ombre to give it that pop of gold and i alternated using these formulas 40G 0N + 6GLRV DEEP + 40G 5VOL (was a little more red) 

second formula i used 40G 0N 3GLRV DEEP + 3GLRR DEEP + 40G 5VOL (lighter red color)

Balyage question!
Does everyone use plastic wrap for their balyage applications? I hate plastic wrap! Is there a reason foil is not placed over the section instead? With the 0n + Enlightener formula, is it necessary to still cover it since it doesn't dry out? Thanks in advance!

Mandy, awesome! The product needs more time to deposit sometimes!  So glad that tip worked out! xox

Comment by Mandy Fagan on March 23, 2015 at 10:07pm
Thank you again for the advice! I just happened to have a client tonight that I was able to apply these tips. Her ng was a level 6, mid/ends were a 4 with existing highlights. She wanted to be a blue/black. I did 10/20 after the filler and processed 40 minutes and it was perfect!
