@mastersofbalayage’s Tips To Better Your Babylights

close formula

We live in a balayage world, but sometimes, you just gotta change it up. And changing it up with some super-fine babylights is def a good way to go. Here’s what Ryan Weeden (@ryan.weeden/@mastersofbalayage) says about perfecting your babylight placement at the hairline!


When working with irregular hairlines…

  • Weave and paint the sections very carefully and as close to the scalp as possible.
  • Maintain control of the foil at all times to avoid slippage.
  • Take your time! This application should never be rushed.


When working on tiny sections…

  • Keep your product extra thick while painting—it acts like glue to keep the foil in place.
  • Know the products and tools you’re using—it betters your accuracy and placement. Ryan’s go-to brush is the @prettylittleombre freehand painting brush (buy it here!).
