ILLUMINATE Your Colour Services

NIKKI SAYS:

“My new go-to technique is Illuminage. This quick and easy colour technique is perfect for illuminating your client’s hair for summer.

It creates a natural and luminous balayage, but with a more luxurious and bespoke feel. In the salon I’m always being asked for more lived-in looks, soft face contouring lights and a more sandy palette. The service is great because you can use it to up sell to your existing balayage clients – it’s a bit more high maintenance than traditional balayage. It combats the low frequency of appointments that often comes with balayage services.

To create brighter ribbons of colour free hand, I use Wella Blondor Freelights Powder and 9% Freelights Developer.

Three of my favourite formulations for a gorgeous colour melt are below…”
