Brazilian Balayage: 3 Tips For Achieving Healthy Dimension
If you’re balayage-obsessed, then you’re probably already following a list of Brazilian colorists on Instagram for their bold money pieces, bright blends and high-contrast dimension. And that list definitely includes Wella Professionals ambassador Romeu Felipe (@romeufelipe)—he’s slaying the game with over 956k followers!

 

You’ve seen the finished results of Brazilian balayage techniques, but how can you achieve that consistent golden glow on your own clients? Here are three basic tips from Romeu for creating healthy dimension!

Products Used

 

1. Start With A Strand Test

Unlike many other countries, it’s common in Brazil for colorists to start appointments with a strand test—a preliminary test that determines if the hair is suitable for a specific coloring process. Romeu recommends starting with this step so he knows how high the hair can lift in one lightening session, then he can adjust his desired results and client’s expectations.

2. The Key To Achieving A Healthy Glow

One thing that all Brazilian balayage blends have in common: healthy shine. How does Romeu achieve this consistent healthy glow, especially on super dark-haired clients going blonde? He protects the hair during every step of the lightening process using the three-step Wella Professionals WellaPlex system.

 

Try These Easy Steps:

  • Add WellaPlex N°1 Bond Maker to every lightening and color formula to lift without compromising integrity.
  • After lifting or coloring, apply WellaPlex N°2 Bond Stabilizer to strengthen hair and rebalance pH levels.
  • Send your clients home with WellaPlex N°3 Hair Stabilizer to prolong healthy color in between appointments.

3. Create Depth For Natural-Looking Blends

Yes, everyone loves a bright face-framing money piece but the key to making blonde POP is creating depth behind it. This will provide contrast and multi-tonal highs and lows, so leave out slices in between balayage sections. Create a darker root and a slightly grown-out base for blonde pieces to fall off of.
