STEP-BY-STEP

NXT Balayage Step 1

STEP 1
Section hair in to 4, leaving a small face frame section at the front.

NXT Balayage Step 2

STEP 2
Working through the sections, apply root colour 5-35 with 3% to the long regrowth area. Use a feathering technique with the brush to blend, this will provide the base root shade.

STEP 3
Using NXT Pro-Tech Bleach with 3% (or NXT Meche Extra Lightening Cream), work in diagonal sections using a chunky weave. Tease the hair and freehand paint the surface of the darker sections. Take care not to overlap on to the ends that are already pre-lightened. Isolate the sections with NXT Foam Wraps.
