Clients love a classic balayage. With soft dimension and seamless highlights weaved throughout, the outcome is always super dreamy. A perfect example: this stunning creation from hair designer Charlie Gauci (@charlie_edwardsandco) that combines vanilla bean and toffee hues for a classic iced-coffee color.

Get the Look

  1. For balayage, use Redken Flash Lift Lightener 12 percent at the hairline and 6 percent for the rest of the head.
  2. Tone zone 1 with Redken Chromatics 4N.
  3. Apply Redken Chromatics 7NB + 9NB in zone 2. 
  4. Finish by applying Redken Chromatics 8WG + 7NB to zone 3 and zone 1.
