How To Keep Your Balayage on Point with Olaplex
You or your client walk out of the salon, balayage on point, then some time later it occurs– your color is pulling some warmth, you may be getting a bit brassy, or maybe your hair just starts to whisper in your ear “love me”. We have just the remedy for you brought to you by hair angel, Lo Wheeler.
We visited WheelHouse Salon in San Clemente, California a couple of months ago and spoke to Lo, the salon owner (and balayage queen). She’s loves Olaplex and told us some of her favorite ways to use it including a tip and technique unique to her to ensure her balayage clients are ALWAYS fresh! She calls it “The 3 T’s”– Toner, Treatment (Olaplex), and a Trim.
“This concept is perfect for maintaining balayage clients that pull warmth in between visits or ANYONE with previously lightened hair.” Says Wheeler.
“After consulting hair goals for this particular maintenance service (photographs above and below), I infuse Olaplex No.1 into my toning glaze.”
Lo then follows the Olaplex toning service Olaplex No. 2, left on the hair for 10-20 minutes depending on the client’s needs.
“Once rinsed and blow dry styled, I dust the ends of the hair with a light trim to keep the hair looking fresh. Note: this is just maintenance, not a style change.”
After the service is complete, Lo sends the client home with Olaplex No. 3 if they don’t already have one. The No.3 is essential for regular, at-home maintenance to be done weekly or more based on how compromised the hair is. This is essential as there’s plenty of damage that occurs in between salon visits such as thermal styling, mechanical styling, and environmental damage.
This is a fabulous maintenance service to ensure your artistry is walking around as gorgeous as it did they day your client left the salon! #Olaplex and let us know if you try it!
