California Balayage

California Balayage is a surfer girl–inspired hair painting technique that’s perfect for people who want to look like they’ve spent all summer at the beach—without the sun damage that comes along with it. Educator Ryan Weeden shows you a modern approach to classic open-air painting to deliver maximum brightness with minimal sectioning, resulting in a natural, lived-in ombré look with bold pieces and sun-drenched ends.

You Will Learn:

  • How California Balayage creates the ultimate, lived-in summery look quickly and efficiently
  • How, when and why to section with intention
  • The importance of proper elevation, direction and tension
  • How much to saturate the hair and why
  • When to paint the “Half V” and the “V”
  • The flick trick for maximum blendability
