How-To: Rose Gold Balayage 







OK so we know you’re loving this rose gold trend. All your clients want it, it gives you tons of creative freedom and let’s talk about all those variations! You can make it subtle or in-your-face. You can try it on your platinum blondes or your sultry brunettes. It can be metallic or vibrant or smoky or barely-there. Oh, yeah. And it can take an already kick-ass balayage and turn it up a notch! That was the inspiration behind this totally on-trend creation from BTC #ONESHOT Hair Paint finalist Mika Parker Rogerson (@mikaatbhc) and Erin Bonney Hassell (@erin.boha_hair). “Erin’s hair was a beautiful color before, but we wanted to spice things up for fall and try out the season’s hottest trend,” says Mika. “We also decided to put our own little twist on it and make it super dimensional as well.” Nailed it. Here’s how Mika and Erin got the look.
