Balayage How-To With Nutrisse Ultra Color | Hair Color 101

Balayage is a hand-painted hair color technique that mixes ombré and highlights for a gorgeous sun-kissed effect. With minimal regrowth lines, it's a low-maintenance look you can easily create at home. In this hair color tutorial, fashion and beauty blogger Daniela Ramirez shows you how to get the look using the Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color High Lift Collection, which has a unique brush applicator that's perfect for special effects.

 

PREPARE TO COLOR

PREPARE TO COLOR

Before you get started, do a 48-hour skin allergy test. To begin the application, section dry, unwashed hair into 4 parts and clip the top section up in a non-metallic clip, leaving the bottom layer free. Wrap a towel around your shoulders and put the gloves on. Twist off the top of the applicator, add the color creme to the developer then add the fruit oil concentrate.

Decide where you want your ombré to start then gently squeeze the developer bottle while brushing through small pieces of hair to apply the color. Continue until all pieces of hair are saturated. Make sure to fully cover tips and keep colored sections close together while adding the hair color at the same level across sections.
