1. How To Prep, Section & Control Brightness With The Dryer

  • Prep: AirTouch works best on an even and sleek canvas, so Danilo always uses a clarifying shampoo and blow-dries the hair straight to ensure even saturation.
  • Sectioning: It’s super important to work in clean, thin sections for AirTouch so the lightener can penetrate the hair easily. 
  • Control Brightness: Determine how light or dark you want the ends results to be. Based on that, adjust how much hair you blow-dry out of each section.
    • For brighter blondes, push less hair out so there is more hair in the foil.
    • For darker blends, push more hair out so less hair is in the foil.

4. Toning AND Glossing Blondes With Permanent Haircolor
AirTouch and blonde balayage clients expect low-maintenance outgrowth, but you want to lift their basewhat do you do? Danilo uses tbh – true beautiful honest Permanent Color to shift the base without causing a harsh line of demarcation during the outgrowth process. Then, he mixes another formula using the tbh – true beautiful honest Tone Softener. This allows the permanent color to shift from opaque to translucent, transforming it into the perfect gloss formula.
