Beyond Balayage

  • Gold & Braid Salon 27525 Puerta Real Mission Viejo, CA, 92691 United States (map)

Class Description

Beyond Balayage is an advanced hands on workshop for hairdressers interested in expanding their knowledge and creativity of the balayage and color process.  While we work on coloring hair, we also work on our self care practices and learn techniques to stay mindful of the type of environment and experience we are creating for ourselves and our clients.  We help guide you in choosing the best approach to balayage and take into consideration the tools you have at your disposal to work with:  you choose your model, the look you want to create, the tools and products you want to use.  We help you get to where you want to go and put together the pieces of the puzzle to create a finished product you are proud of.
