One question I get often with Balayage is "HOW DO I CONVERT SOMEONE WHO HAS TRADITIONAL HILIGHTS TO BALAYAGE?" .
There are a few different ways to tackle this. It depends on many variables. Here's one way....If there is an obvious line of demarcation, then it's necessary to add highs and lows. If this is the first time converting to Balayage, always use a semi or demi to add in the low lights. There will be some clients who just prefer the look of a traditional weave. This makes it easier to lift through instead of going through and lifting through permanent color. Then I like to use a combination of Balayage techniques (surface painting, slants, and singles) according to and utilizing the existing hilights, focusing around the face and the top layer. It's more of an art and feeling than it is pattern based when I transition clients to Balayage. Hope this was helpful and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask👇🏻
