Achieve Brass-Free, Bright Blonde Hair With These 5 Tips
From sun-kissed strands to rooty balayage, blonding services are hotter than ever! Keep reading to get five tips from BTC Team Member Mallery Share (@hellobalayage) and learn how to create bright blonde hair that is dimensional and brass-free!
1. Bright Blonde Balayage
Hair painting slants (as seen in the pic below) is perfect for creating bright blonde hair while keeping some of that dimension she craves because it breaks up the roots and results in a lived-in look.
2. Foilayage Technique For Low-Maintenance Clients
Foilayage is a great technique for low-maintenance clients who want to subtly lighten their locks without compromising a seamless fade out. It mimics balayage so she’ll still have a dimensional, lived-in look but it can last up to six months—aka less touch ups.
3. How To Remove Brassy Tones From Blonde Hair
The goal always? To never hear a client say, “I still see yellow!” And we know two products that can help avoid that. According to Mallery, the best way to remove brassy tones from blonde hair is to apply GKhair Ultra Blonde Bombshell Masque to your hair for seven minutes, then rinse it out. This product removes brassy tones and adds high-shine. When styling your hair, use GKhair Leave-In Cream as it neutralizes unwanted pigments while smoothing, protecting and hydrating lightened hair.
4. How To Paint The Crown
To prevent holes in the crown area, Mallery says to follow the “whirl” in the hair and paint in the natural pattern that her strands grow.
5. Best Tip For Creating A Sun-Kissed Balayage
When creating sun-kissed balayage it’s super important to leave some dimension, too, which is why Mallery opts for surface painting. It always leaves a built-in lowlight, so she can lighten her client’s locks without losing that natural, complimentary contrast.
