Introducing the all-things-balayage brand: Sunlights, founded by celebrity stylist, salon owner, and educator Candy Shaw. Regarded as one of North America’s foremost balayage educators, Candy has created an ultra stylist-friendly, complete Balayage class-in-a-box called, The Balay Box. The kit features Sunlights Professionnel Balayage Lightener, a proprietary Kaolin Clay-based lightener designed exclusively for hair painting, as well as the tools and education stylists needed to perform the service.
We love Sunlights emphasis on The 3 Pillars to a Perfect Balayage:
- Consistency of Product — Lightener should be a thick, cream cheese consistency so that it will stick to the hair. If it’s too thin, you can end up with messy application.
- Brushstroke — When applying the lightener, use sweeping, side-to-side motions with the brush held perpendicular to the hair. Do not place the brush flat against the hair and push it down in short increments as you would when foiling because that will cause uneven distribution of the lightener.
- Saturation — Fully cover the strand with product to ensure lift. “If it’s not white, it’s not light.”
We’ve all been witness to the rise and success that balayage has brought to the color world, and it’s not going anywhere. Balayage is faster, more profitable, ‘greener’ and more fun than traditional foil highlights. Now we have an all encompassing brand to support, educate, and execute those natural sun-kissed highlights that are desired by so many clients.
