ColourWand Balayage Hair color techniques using hand painting sweeping Motions.

Balayage is the term for French high-lighting effects.

This method of balayage hair coloring is for all hair type, when in the right hands it produces beautiful color tones and various color shades.

Is bleach the same with balayage as you do with traditional foil?

If you know what you’re doing you can use any bleach the longest the mix is right. Today in the market there is Different bleaches available from Organic blech and M.E.A ONE MUST HAVE A GREAT UNDERSTADING of these products and what they do.

I like using Regular ammonia powdered lightener this product is made to work evenly in a time manner of 45 min without over drying the hair , I like mixing 2 ounces of 20 vol developer to one scoop of blech.

When I think of the balayage technique, I think of sweeping with a broom or dusting the hair lightly for the coloring effect that I imagine.

 Balayage can be done on any level of hair color from black to gray hair?

starting at the nape and painting the hair at different angles with the brush and using various painting strokes with bleach or color with low volume h2o2 you can add a couple of other colors to achieve different tones and contrast in balayage hair painting.

Dark or Black Hair

First time client’s I explain that this technique looks better on layered hair. The highlights SHOULD STILL blend and not so bold if the client has darker hair. It is a good idea to use various tones on dark hair for a better blend of tones.


For red heads I use the same theory as above always-using color and bleach with reds I else recommend using some yellow gold’s these colors look amazing with the reds color deposits specially if you are using the patterns of rounds and flats, lighting plays a huge part in hair coloring.


One must have a true Understanding of the chemistry of hair color and bleaches specially if using hair color at home. Hair-color is 98% chemicals without the knowledge you will not be able to have successes in hair coloring.    

HAIR COLOR and styling GOALS with  IDEAS


The Importance of Men’s Grooming

Martin rodriguez

Hair stylist Martin Rodriguez


Everybody knows that women are under a lot of pressure to look good. Salons are full of women, getting facials, manicures, color and cuts. Seeing a man at the salon is like spotting an endangered species. But why aren’t men keeping up appearances? Maybe they feel that good grooming only requires the basics: a barber cut, a shave and clean clothes. Surely, they think, men don’t have to worry about hairstyles, products, or God forbid, styling tools! Unfortunately, those guys that ignore style and grooming don’t realize they are giving the wrong impression, or worse, no impression at all. Those heartthrobs that women swoon over in the movies make an effort to be hot. Even when they have that unkempt look that women love, it is a masterful mix of rugged manliness with professional grooming. 

Maybe men are a little intimidated by an industry that seems to be dominated by women and gay men. Let’s face it, men don’t like to jump into something that feels foreign, myself included. But being stylishly groomed has its rewards so keep your eye on the prize, namely women. You can’t expect to compete for the attention of women when images of Ryan Gosling or George Clooney are dancing in their heads, meanwhile you have the same haircut from middle school, except it grows longer from your ears than your head. The double standard that men get to be slobs while women bend over backwards to be fit and beautiful is gone. American men spend over 50% more on grooming than they did in 1997. In The U.K. that rate rose by 66% in just one year, from 2010 to 2011. If you men haven’t already begun to put some effort into your grooming routine you will quickly be overshadowed by those who do.

Lastly, when we put effort into our image it pays in our professional life too. Like it or not, first impressions are visual. People equate a positive image with many positive traits, such as integrity, honesty, and reliability. Not to mention, when we put effort into our appearance it gives us confidence. Confidence shows in our body language, which tells others that we have self-respect, which gains the respect of others. So whether you want to improve your success in the bedroom or the boardroom, find a good stylist. It all starts with looking the part.

  The perfect blowout hairstyle WITH KINACTIF NUTRI HAIR CARE PRODUCT

By Kin North America

Clients should understand the basics of a ‘blowout’.

Women across the nation have sought the perfect hairstyle. That elusive blend of volume softness, smoothness and style has created frustration in many women who seek the perfect hair their personalities and creativity through their locks. Hairstyles often represent the cultural, social and ethnic identity for many individuals and can also represent a certain social status. While hair density, texture and length are all factors in a person’s hairstyle, fashion and trends play the biggest role in women’s hairstyles and hair coloring.

       Now The perfect blowout is not just drying the hair!Actuality the blowout is a styling technique that takes practice anyone can achieve a great Blow out with some schooling and practice lets get started.

When done properly you can create soft gentle curves in the hair. A proper blowout can add fullness and volume to the hair, can straighten curls, and can add shine. Here are a few simple tools you need, and then take you through the blowout process.

What you need:

       1 Shampooed Cleaned hair

       2 conditioned hair

       3 A Blow Dryer

       4 Heat-Protective Styling Products

 (Depending on the type of    hair you have)

 Curly hair I recommend using NUTRI Blow dry cream anti frizz creams and kin spray gloss for soft touchable hair

For straight hair try Kin texture Radical spray Thermic spray or curly cream , Extreme mousse by Kin  for volume

       5 Clips for Controlling the Hair

       6 A rat-tail Comb

       7 A paddle Brush

       8 A Round Brushes

       We want to start with the hair having fresh shampooed hair and conditioned. This ensures a great starting point for our styling. Residual build-up of some hair styling products can leave the hair stiff and dull it can change the look of the hair during the styling process. Make sure to understand the hair products that you will be using in your styling. Plan Ahead in the style you will like to achieve. Techniques are important so you can manage the hair well when you’re trying to get a feel for how a technique is supposed to work and feel.

      Aside from clean hair, the most-important factor in this technique is the blow dryer. Any blow dryer can help you dry your hair. But FOR BEST results from a blow dryer you want something that allows you to control the temperature and airflow more than just your basic blow dryer.

       Use a hair dryer that offers dual-settings switch on the fan and the temperature. You also want a dryer with a ‘cool shot’ Button which HELPS cool the hair from heating. As long as the button is pressed this allows you to change the temperature of the airflow to cool to HOT. 

The round brushes are for drying and styling with volume and creating soft curls in your hair try using various sizes of round brushes. For best results clip the hair after each section has been dry with the brush and let the hair cool of. The vented brush is called such because it has vents in its base that allow the air to circulate through the brush and dry the hair more quickly. The round brush generally has a metallic or ceramic barrel at its base that is designed to hold heat and allow you to reshape the hair shaft along the bend of the barrel. It’s this barrel curvature that allows the hair to be shaped into soft curves. Just as with rollers, you want the barrel of your round brush to be larger depending on the length of your hair.

How To:

       Start with Nutri #2 shampooed, conditioned with Nutri mask and towel-dried, apply a quarter size amount of your protective/styling hair product and comb it through evenly. Next take your comb and your hairs clips and divide the hair into workable sections. Gather the top of the hair of and twist it into a coil and clip it in place. The middle section of the hair should be separated into left and right sides. Leave the lower third hanging loose and comb it to remove any tangles and make sure the product is distributed evenly – adding more as needed.

 Start drying the hair using low heat with a high airflow. Brush through the hair to separate the hair and keep the hair and dryer moving constantly. The goal is to gently dissipate the water on the hair to a dry’ state. Once the hair is ‘mostly dry’ you want to switch to your round brush, and shift your dryer to high heat and low airflow.

       Use the round brush and pull the hair taut as you direct the hot air along the length of the shaft in the direction the hair grows. You never want to blow the air toward the scalp along the hair shaft. If you blow the hair toward the scalp the hair will become frizzy follow the direction of the hair grain away from the scalp.

       Stylist TIP: The secret to blow dry straightening is TENSION. You need a brush that is going to pull the hair taut as you blow the hot air along its length. If you have fine hair and can’t seem to get your hair straight with a blow dryer, this is probably why. If necessary, use a brush with natural fiber bristles to get the desired tension. For truly straight hair in a blowout style, use a flat paddle brush. We’re demoing the round brush look because we want SOFT gentle curves in the hairstyle.

       If you want to add extra fullness and volume to the hair, use texture sprays to your round brush and to the sections of hair where you need more volume. Hold sections of hair taut near the scalp while you direct the airflow to style the hair. Once the hair is dried, hit the cool shot button and cool off the hair to set the hair. This will cause the hair to stand away from the scalp and give volume.

       Continue with these steps through the rest of the sections of the hair. Take your time and work in smaller sections as you finish with the rest of the hair. You’ll be happier with your hairstyle if you take your time don’t rush the job.  Finished look, you can actually set a few sharper curves in the hair by using your round brush or fingers apply a dime size of KIN STAR wax hair polish to your hands emulsify well and take one section at a time to add polish look by using your fingers wrapping hair and shaping with hands and fingers. Along the front hairline, try curling the hair around the brush and warming it while you hold the hair taut, then cool the hair and remove the brush. You can create these deep bends along a parting line or simply at the forward hairline to give a more polished look.

       Use a similar technique at the ends of the hair by rolling the brush in your fingers to keep the hair wrapped around the barrel of the brush while it is warmed. Cool the hair while you continue rolling the brush to set the bend in the hair. Once you have the look you want, spray the hair lightly with (KIN ) KIN Hairspray to keep the style looking smooth and neat.

Dark HairColor

Not every is happy with their color that God gave them. Here are a few tips to enhance that color suddenly. A great way is to add a few lighter shadows around the face line and at the crown of the head, this will give you some brightness and enhance your natural dark hair.

Color to choose, Red gold, Auburn, Blue base tones be sure to lighten hair a fraction one to two levels only.

Mark hair with lighter face line hair color


Dishwater blondes

 Natural dark blondes tend to look drab and unpleasant, this color needs brightness and gold tones to bring out life and bolder colors will look amazing on this level of hair. Recommended colors, Golds, Light blondes with a blue base, apricots for background, Carmel.



Consultation and unexpected color photos that have been photoshopped 

Highlights consist of selecting small or thick strands of hair that are then lightened at least 2 shades lighter than the rest of your hair.

 Highlights should compliment your skin tones and match your personality. 

 If you desire a natural look you should never go more than 3 shades lighter then the rest of your HAIR COLOR. Natural looking highlights give you a sun-kissed look and to bring depth and light to your overall color.  

For racier highlights a rainbow of colors can be chosen.  However, these should still match the skin tones of the individual.  


Pick the right color. Your hair color should suit your complexion. Any hair color will look good on pale skin. If you have pink skin, avoid shades of red or golden blonde. 

Opt instead for ash tones to neutralize your coloring. Sallow complexion? Stick with deep reds & avoid yellow, gold or orange tones. If your skin is olive, stick with dark  or red colors & add richness with Low-lights in red or brown shades.


To color or to highlight , that's the question. If you have short hair, avoid highlights & opt for full color. Subtle highlights around your face will brighten your complexion if you have longer hair. 

Keep in mind that due to root growth, all-over coloring will need to be touched up every 4 to 6 weeks, while highlights can last up to 2 or 3 months.



Different types of highlights. There are basically 4 types of highlights: basic foil highlights, Biollage or ‘Balayage hair painting’, chunking or 'piecing' & low lighting and paneling.

What does your client love about the pictures they brought in? If they decided to bring in a smorgasbord, don’t just choose one and go for it. Ask yourself, "Do all of these pictures have one similar quality? What kind of verbiage is she using to describe the picture?" Be technical, but bring it all back to them and what they are trying to say. It’s always good to verify one last time for good measure. Confirm by saying, “what I’m hearing is…” and before you head back to the shampoo area, hopefully you’ve heard something along the lines of “Yes, that’s exactly what I’m looking for!”


Flex Your Product Knowledge

Product Knowledge allows you to demonstrate your brain power and leave no doubt or question behind the value of professional products vs. store bought and/or professional services vs. home remedies. You are setting the bar, ensuring the customer can recreate their desired look at home, and by giving them solutions to the problems you have identified in the consultation. If you skip this part, you can bet that when this client reads about ‘putting coconut oil on your hair every day cures dandruff’, she will believe it.

Set Yourself Up To Set Yourself Apart

Under promise and over deliver by guiding your guest toward more realistic expectations. You can guarantee that you’ll retain them and build a long-standing relationship by taking the time to build a “hair plan” over a number of appointment sessions, allowing the service to evolve with integrity at the forefront. If all doesn’t go as you initially had planned, at least you didn’t promise the moon and stars, but also bear in mind that you’ve essentially guaranteed yourself a second visit to make “minor adjustments” next time! Either way, you’re in the drivers seat, you’re the one with the knowledge and experience, you’re the professional. Make it obvious that you are indispensable!

Sombre: It’s a blend of colors applied as I highlight the whole head using a lightener on the hair, deposit color as a background to give the hair contrast and gloss.

  ​Blending colors next  to each other, from ashy to blondes to brunette the ash tones keeps the hair from getting to warm and will compliment the darker tones.

The effect is “Natural looking and the client will feel more comfortable yet sexy; being put-together without looking like you tried too hard,” Martin Rodriguez. says that in order to maintain healthy and beautiful hair it’s a great idea to have a color refresher and treatments in between visits of doing the whole color all over.
