A New Way to Balayage, by Angelo Seminara for Davines

This revolutionary color service—called Flamboyage and created by Davines Artistic Director Angelo Seminara—is a new spin on balayage, performed using special Flamboyage Meche Strips that offer the colorist unprecedented creative freedom. It spontaneously enhances reflections by creating unique blends of bright and natural tones.

    Create horizontal sections and place a small Flamboyage Meche Strip close to the ends of the hair to secure the section. Place a long Flamboyage Meche Strip on the surface of the section, press lightly and then gently lift the Flamboyage Meche Strip to separate the hair. Turn the Flamboyage Meche Strips over and apply Formula A from midlengths to ends, diffusing the product gently toward the regrowth area to avoid creating harsh lines.
