Beige Balayage

This decadent sun-kissed blend infuses warm beige and gold tones on a light brunette, creating the perfect tone-on-ton blend. Using PRAVANA’s new Pure Light Balayage Lightener Kit, Hair Guru and social media sensation Guy Tang first balayaged the hair and then overlayed a stunning metallic beige tone with help from new ChromaSilk Express Tones, bringing this shimmering caramel melt to life.  Here’s how it’s done!

In the last few sections, part the hair around the natural fall and fringe, and apply the Pure Light Balayage Lightener to the surface of the sections to create a concentration of lightness around the face.

 Process until the desired lightness is achieved. Shampoo the hair with any NEVO Shampoo, rinse, and towel-dry the hair. Apply ChromaSilk Express Tones Beige Toner starting in the back at the scalp and working up toward the front, then working the color through the more porous midshafts and ends. Process until desired tone is achieved.  Rinse and condition the hair with any NEVO Conditioner. Style as desired.
