How To: Balayage Colouring Technique

You may have heard this fancy word, “Balayage,” which is actually a French word meaning 'sweeping,' as in to sweep on a hair lightener to create highlights without leaving any obvious regrowth lines.
This tutorial presents a Balayage technique in which hair in the back is divided diagonally and in zigzag patterns. Fading material is applied to the hair in a zero degree position of the brush.
In addition, we begin to apply the material from the bottom of hair sections, then move on fading it towards the top.
Below, you can watch the full instruction of this method by Ms. Mirzaee. To reserve a seat in the training courses, you can contact the beauty salon through the provided phone numbers.

Hello Everyone, I'm here today with a Balayage hair item which I hope you will find beneficial to your needs. in this method, the hair is divided diagonally into two parts in the back and the layers are sectioned in zigzags. and then the colour material is applied in zero degree position. and now I'm fading it from bottom towards the top. There are usually two ways of fading in Balayage and Ombré techniques. one is applied with bleaching material and the other is done with colour material. I personally prefer colour fading to bleach fading because it makes the yellowish orange colour less noticeable in the client's hair. start adding the material from the bottom, as we go further to the top, less material is applied to the hair. how close the material should go to the scalp will depend on the client's wish and of course the hair's colour base.

Sometimes there are clients with several colours on their hair base and there are others who like to have the Balayage close to the scalp. therefore, you will have to do it as they wish. after you've made sure the bottom is thoroughly covered with material and the top is faded enough. put a piece of mesh fabric on the treated section. now for this section, repeat exactly what you did to the previous section. We must apply the material at exactly the same far from the scalp on the both sections. As I already said, the material grows thinner as it goes to the top so that you can move the brush much more easily for the fading process. you can also use the edges of the brush to go over the sides of the hair section. the brush must be moved towards the top in throwing motions.

Since I've got a mannequin head here, I'm not able to demonstrate the act of fading very properly. well, I've picked a thicker section for the next after fading the previous one, divide this one in zigzags too. separate a part of it based on how thick the client wants it to be,then take the rest to apply the material on in a zero degree position. follow the very same steps as we did for the previous parts, as you see the hair is still divided diagonally. whether we can get a good result in the Balayage and Ombré techniques will depend greatly on how well the hair is faded. If you follow the steps improperly, there will be fading marks left on the hair after brushing it. you can choose to fade one layer closer to the scalp and the other a bit farther. But always remember that two adjacent sections must be faded exactly the same. after we're done with applying the material, place one piece of mesh fabric under and one over the section so that it won't spoil the untouched underneath section.

Try to be clean while working, always have a handkerchief to clean your hands before going on to separate more sections. repeat the same steps for the adjacent section. apply more material to the bottom and as I said It becomes thinner as we go on to the roots. you mustn't move the brush on its side for fading, you must use the tip and the edges of the brush for fading. again after applying the material, place one mesh fabric under and one over the section. go on doing the sections one by one just like this until we reach the crown part of the head. as we have a bit smaller sections to fade on the crown, we're gonna have to pick a straight layer im the middle. we'll again go in a zigzag pattern, but remember to hold the section up while fading it so that the faded lines will be better shown in the hair.

I'll work diagonally for the both sides until I reach the middle part of the head. note that we must separate equal sections on both sides to be exactly symmetrical. One more point to make about this method is that this model is the best choice for those who don't like to have too blonde hair. those who'd love to have a quite light Balayage. Thus, this won't be a good option for those wishing to have intensive blonde hair. well, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. To attend our instruction courses, please dial the numbers provided.
