The Power Blonde is a bright, striking hair color that is a status symbol and personification of success which says, “I can afford the best!” It is the celebrity color that looks explosive on the runway and is a real head-turner. It starts with understanding advanced color theory to create the most sought-after and difficult to formulate base colors, levels 8 and 9 ash, followed by strategically applied balayage highlights, processed for just the right amount of time. In this session, you will also learn how to lift dark natural colors and effectively control gold and red pigments, while covering grey and choosing the appropriate blond tone to illuminate a client’s complexion.
We will review both the latest trends in hair color, as well as classic looks for the more mature, professional woman, who is a colorist’s bread and butter client. You will see how it makes a woman look 10 years younger and why top colorists in NYC refer to it as “non-invasive surgery.” Creating this color is a true art form in which few are proficient. Learning it will build client loyalty, get you referrals, and make your work stand out in your salon and region, propelling your career.
In addition to its focus on the Power Blonde, this class will cover everything from balayage basics, proper tools, and color theory, to advanced technques and the nuances of placement and processing, regardless of the desired outcome. It will put you on the path to becoming a balayage expert, whether you’re a beginner to this art form or have been doing it for years and are looking to perfect it and take your work to the next level.
The morning will begin with a presentation on balayage and color theory, followed by Eva’s demonstration on a live model, as she takes you through the nuances of this specialized art form. After a catered lunch, you will have the opportunity to practice this technique on mannequin heads while being supervised by Eva and her team of educators, to ensure that you receive plenty of personalized attention.
