Americans do it with foil. The French prefer balayage—(French for “sweeping”)—a quick, artistic, hand painting approach to highlighting. John and Chad Siggers of Siggers Hairdressing discovered this natural-looking technique in Paris nearly 20 years ago, and they’ve been offering it in their Atlanta salon--and conducting classes for colleagues--ever since. Here are six of their popular DVDs…now you can do it the French way!

Balayage-The Color DVD
They call it BalayColor and it’s the Siggers’ method for applying color and highlights simultaneously. The secret’s in the blending and you’ll learn how to formulate, apply, time, blend and remove balayage highlights and haircolor in the time it usually takes to touch-up regrowth. The result is the sexy “Bardot-esque” look of lighter ends and a deeper root area—très magnifique!(1 DVD/20mins)
