Balayage 101 // Step by Step DIY Highlights // Pro Hair Color Painting Tutorial // Daniella Benita


Hey everyone! It’s DaniellaBenita. So today were going to do a step by step balayage tutorial. and I’m going to teach you guys how to get those really pretty lines, also keep depth in between and were going to ash out those ends. So if you want to learn my technique keep watching! Okay so were going to start off with lightener and 30 vol. I’m going to use B3. It’s basically Olaplex just so we can protect her hair. Then I’m going to mix another bowl of lightener with 10 volume and thats for the ends. So I’m going to begin by framing out her face and I’m going to use 10 volume. Just do really fine highlights and I’m going to do 3 each. So 3 on both temples and then at the top. And what that’s going to do is ensure that you have those really pretty, poppy pieces there and also when she pulls her hair back into a ponytail she’s not super dark in the front. So here I’m just going to begin balayaging. I’m holding my brush to the side and I’m taking tiny slices of that lightener. You don’t have to work with too much product. That was my number 1 mistake when I first started balayaging. And then I’m going to paint the lightener underneath just to pop that dark part under there because we really do want to get her a lot lighter. And then I’m going to lightly skim the top just to blend all of that together. So if you guys wanted a little bit more depth you don’t have to take every section and do the balayage. You can leave a small section out so that you have more of that depth in there. We really did want to make her brighter so I do take each section and do the balayage all the way up. And I’m placing a foil underneath just so I have control and I can get full saturation. But i’m also using those long cotton strips on top of that. It’s really easy to layer everything and I’ve really enjoyed that technique. Also when you are doing balayage those V’s up at the top of the root. Make sure they are a lot softer than the ones you are doing in the mids so that you dont get hot roots! So once I’m done the back I usually have to mix another bowl. So what you are going to want to do is bump the lightener. So since we did the back 30 volume and 10 volume now do the front with 40 vol and 10 volume. Just so you guys get even coverage and so you don’t have to worry about catching up. Another great reason why you should start in the back is you can always rinse everything out in the back if the front isn’t done fast enough. That way you don’t have to worry about breakage or that it isn’t as light in the front as it is in the back. So as you can see we did take out the foils in the front. You want to make sure that you are watching those about 20 minutes into the process because they will be done first over everything. And you just simply take a wet towel and peel off the foil and then just wipe off the bleach and you’re good to go! Now I’m putting her under heat. I’m going to start with 15 minutes and check the lightness. You guys can do however long it needs but it depends on how light their hair is previously. So I’m also going to rough dry everything to about 80% dry. So I’m going to use a level 8 with a little bit of ash at the root. I’m going to blend that first all through out. Basically do a root touch up and then I’m going to take 10.7. It’s a really pearly violet color for the ends. and were going to let that process for the full 20 min. Alright guys here is the final RESULT! I’m so in love with it. I really think the blend is beautiful. I love the pieces in the front and the way they frame her face. You can still see the depth in there which is what I really wanted but it just blends beautifully! The ends are such a pretty creamy blonde color! I hope you guys learned a lot!
