The hairstylists over at My Good Salon know a thing or two about creating a breathtaking balayage. But that is no surprise when they have the queen of lived in balayage mentoring them. We are talking about our Fanola artist @cs.walker_, of course! The wonderfully talented Sian created this dreamy ash bronde balayage using all Fanola products. She started by applying slices of Prestige 6.0 to certain places to create dimension. Sian then went on to bleach foils with 9% for the face frame.

Now, this is KNOT, your average balay! Natasha transformed her client’s grown out brassy balayage to this toffee drizzle delight. We love this transformation as it shows just how low maintenance balayage can be. Client’s who prefer to visit the salon once or twice a year max is best suited to this colour service. It is because the grow-out is much less noticeable than other colour techniques.

Balayage and blonde specialist Claudia is the hair magician behind this next level balayage. These mermaid waves have got us dreaming of being by the sea with a cocktail in hand. Claudia is one of our fantastic Fanola artists. She is a huge fan of our Violet Bleach Powder which is low in ammonia. To achieve the perfect blonde tones, Claudia has opted for our No Yellow Ice Toners T.21 and T.02.
