Back-To-Basics Balayage Tips

close formula

What’s the most-requested technique in your salon? We’re betting it’s balayage. Check out this quick video from L’ANZA Healing Haircare Global Healing Color Director Leah Freeman that’s chock-full of fantastic balayage tips!


Here are a couple of our favorite tricks from Leah:


1. Alternate between weaving and slicing to break up the line of demarcation.


2. Clean sections allow for more control and get really close to the retouch area.


3. Spray down the base of the hair for each section to give the hair a little moisture before you begin.


4. Leave the front hairline pieces out when working on the sides so you can go back later and do those by themselves—blondes always want those front pieces to be blonde, blonde, blonde and super close to the root!
