Introduction to the 4 Gestures of Balayage


The Four Gestures

Jack dispels the myths and fears around freehand colouring, introduces the 4 key gestures that form the basis of all Balayage looks (classic, creative, micro and Californian) and shows how to perfect these. 

This class allows you to take what they’ve learnt onto the salon floor and you will immediately be able to make more money by offering another colour service. 

Jack presents a live model demo in the morning, before you work on doll heads in the afternoon.

You'll perfect the application of balayage freehand highlights from root to tip for effortless, natural-looking hair colour, and take home invaluable salon-friendly techniques that’ll bring more money into your business. Learn techniques including face framing (the money piece); ponytail highlights; zone toning and lived-in hair. 

We also cover the issues you are experiencing in the salon, with an honest conversation around the problems that do arise.
