Copper Shine Lights

If you’ve always struggled with the best way to highlight your reds, we have your answer—balayage, of course! Balayage can provide the natural looking dimension that redheads need, plus it’s quick and the results are super subtle. L’Oréal Professionnel and balayage queen Nancy Braun wanted to keep this red looking natural while also enhancing her color. Here’s how you can do it in your salon.

    Create single point balayage pieces, approximately three highlight checks on each side. Then, 2 inches above the previous section, follow the same sectioning pattern and create double point balayage pieces on each side. In the final back section, create three single point balayage pieces off the high point of the head, working right, center and left.

    In the front subsections, on both sides of the head, create diagonal back sections 1 inch off of the hairline from the natural part to the radial parting. Work from the front to the back of the subsection, and create double point balayage pieces up to the natural parting.

    Once the application is complete, fold the perforated plastic from the front sections over, to prevent overlapping onto the back, and for easy removal when rinsing. Process, wet, emulsify, rinse and shampoo twice with L’Oréal Professionnel Post Color Shampoo, followed by Série Expert Powerdose Color A-OX in-salon treatment.
