So you’ve finally convinced your scared-of-change client to switch it up a little. Good for you! But you know her—a radical difference will spook her. This is the perfect time for a small, add-on service—maybe some sweet caramel lights! But right now, you’re a little tight on time…

 

Using the Balayroo Color Applicator, stylist and inventor Dana Bremner shows you how to create the perfect caramel lights in half the time. A new innovative hand device that allows for exact color placement with no spilling or leaking, the Balayroo easily spreads color through the strands. All you have to do is place your color in the device and run it through the hair in a sweeping motion and you’ve got more control and artistic freedom than ever before.

 

See how Dana used it to create these AMAZING caramel lights!

 

Color Formula
Formula A:
Equal parts Paul Mitchell Forever Blonde Syncrolift + 30-volume developer 

 

Application
1. Begin by creating horizontal partings, starting above the ear.

 

2. On 4 to 5 weaves, apply Formula A using the Balayroo. Start low, putting the product on the midlengths, and then fanning up toward the roots.

 

3. Once you’ve colored the hair around the hairline, drop another set. When working toward the back, drop down. Continue to work up each side of the head with one-inch subsections. 

 

 

But It’s Gonna Be A Mess, Right?! WRONG.
No way! The secret to not being messy with this applicator is using the right amount of color in the Balayroo at one time! And of course, “Gentle Pressure! Do not squeeze the Balayroo or the product will ooze out!” says Dana.
