January has seen me take my Balayage revolution class on the road, already i’ve been in Cork and Newcastle. The response has been huge and heartwarming. People and the industry are more aware of the technique now, looking back at the last few years and it has really taken off here in the UK. There is still some confusion about what Balayage is, and in it’s classic form it’s a highlighting technique, but slowly we are over coming that. I believe its the fear of going close to the scalp that frightens hairdressers the most, colour bleeding on the scalp has never been a pretty look, and this is certainly part of the focus in my classes.
Newcastle was really interesting because the owner of Gallery 108 Becky rounded up some friends from other salons and invited them all to the event, this allowed for a fun sized group and also shared the burden of the costs, ingenious really.
So for all the smaller salons out therethat don’t think they can afford to have a day with me teaching balayage why not pull together with some friends not necessarily competitors, but friends and see if you can have the majic which is balayage introduced into your salon.
