MASTER THE PERFECTION
STEP BY STEP
NDE BALAYAGE ESSENTIALS
To get your blonde balayage looking ultra-glowy, choose a Koleston Permanent Hair Color Cream that’s a shade or two lighter than your existing blonde*. Our model wears Caramel Blonde. You can use the color guide on the side of each kit to figure out your perfect hue, then unbox to reveal everything you need for flawless highlights. Each kit contains:
- Color Cream
- Color Reactivator
- Developer Bottle
- Advanced Intense Gloss Treatment
MIX YOUR COLOR
Mixing your blonde balayage shade is easy. After putting on the gloves, simply combine the color cream and color reactivator in the developer bottle, then shake the bottle to blend the two together.
Separate hair into sections to make your DIY balayage ultra-easy. This way, you’ll be able to reach those lower layers and see any spots you’ve missed.
GENTLY BACKCOMB HAIR
Backcomb the bottom few inches of each section of hair, using a comb to very gently tease strands upwards. This helps to further separate your hair, so you’re only applying balayage to a scattering of strands rather than the full lower half of hair.
BLEND YOUR BALAYAGE
It’s time to apply your blonde balayage. Squeeze the hair dye from the developer bottle onto the tips of your fingers, then blend the color from the tips up to the mid-lengths.
RINSE AND GLOW
Leave color to develop for 40 minutes, then rinse (with the Advanced Intense Gloss Treatment for a moisture boost) and style as you usually would. Your blonde balayage will positively glow.
* BEFORE YOU COLOR
Always read the safety instructions and follow the directions for use carefully. Do skin allergy test 48 hours before each application, even if you have already used coloring products.
