Who: Colortrak’s Balayage Haircoloring Film
The Scoop: Foils conduct heat like crazy and leave your balayage results underwhelming at best. So it was no surprise colorists ditched the foil and opted for plastic wrap instead! But plastic wrap had problems too. You must have an extremely steady, almost robotic hand to apply plastic wrap without it crumpling in the hair and destroying your work. And removing those strips of plastic proved to be an arduous, anxiety-ridden task of hoping it won’t cling to the hair and distort your work. So Colortrak came up with a solution—a plastic wrap that doesn’t crumple, cling and yet lets you place color in whatever freehand or balayage technique you wish to use! Introducing Colortrak’s Professional Balayage Haircoloring Film! And if you don’t believe there can be a crumple-free plastic wrap, test it out! Scrunch the film into a ball and throw it in front of you. If you did that to other plastic wraps, it would remain in a ball. Colortrak’s innovative film will unravel itself and return to a flat sheet. This no cling, no crumple technology is unheard of and makes Colortrak’s film a game changer for balayage and freehand artists!
Who: Formawell Hair Resurrection
