Allure Zipper Balayage Technique ZIPPER BALAYAGE: ALLURE FORMULA 1 ligh blue 30vol. (9%) oxidizing emulsion FORMULA 2 lighcolor sahara gold, 10vol. (3%) oxidizing emulsion Tonalize (completely) with milk_shake® direct color clear 30g + powder 10g STEP 1: Divide the hair into five sections: the fringe area, the two side areas and the two back areas, isolate and secure. STEP 2: For this technique it was decided to utilize ligh color sahara mixed with 10 vol. (3%) oxidizing emulsion and lighwhite mixed with 30vol. (9%) oxidizing emulsion. STEP 3: Add the milk_shake color specifics safe lightener complex additive to protect and condition the hair, improving the lightening process. STEP 4: Horizontally separate a subsection of approximately 3 cm with a zig-zag. Project the subsection to 45° degrees and, holding the brush vertically, apply ligh white, by drawing lines that start from the corners of the triangle going towards the ends. STEP 5: With the help of the hands transport most of the mixture towards the ends and conclude the process by going upwards with the brush towards the roots. STEP 6: Isolate the first subsection with an aluminium foil. STEP 7: With the tip of the tail comb, take the second subsection with a zig-zag, well defining the triangle. STEP 8: Using the lighcolor sahara mixture, “draw” three lines on the surface of the subsection. STEP 9: Proceed in the same way on the entire right back section, alternating between the two formulas. STEP 10: Repeat the same process on the left back section. The amount of lightening mixture and the width of the blended subsection increase the luminous effect on the hair. STEP 11: In the two side areas separate the first subsection horizontally by keeping the zig-zag slightly smaller and continue with the same lightening technique utilizing the lightening mixture. STEP 12: Project the fringe at 180-degrees, with the use of the brush and hands, delicately blend ligh white just lightening the area below the subsection. This technique reproduces a natural, bright and elegant effect on the hair, as each zig-zag subsection lightened fits harmoniously within the hair.
