NXT Balayage Step-by-Step
Section hair in to 4, leaving a small face frame section at the front.
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.
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.
Alternate the application of 5-35 with 3% and Pro-Tech Bleach with 3% through the full head and isolate with foam wraps.
Create the face frame using micro slices with Pro-Tech Bleach +3% (or Meche Extra Lightening Cream) with foil. Process for 40 minutes then wash with iQ Volume Shampoo and Conditioner.
Towel dry the hair then tone the full head with 8-13 + 3%. Process for 20 minutes then emulsify to remove the colour and wash using iQ Volume Shampoo and Conditioner.
Apply iQ Blow Dry Cream, distributing well throughout the hair.
Blow dry using a radial heat retaining brush to straighten and smooth, creating a small root lift.
To finish, apply iQ Hairspray.
