Colour Specialist Academy



So here was our dilemma.. Education is absolutely KEY to developing any skill, right? But so many colour courses were full of incredibly heavy science and what felt like intimidatingly strict "don't do's", which can leave us feeling like we've just got an "F" in chemistry. But guess what.. Sh*t happens, hair doesn't always lift how we want it to, we over promise when we shouldn't and colours DO go wrong.

So why is nobody addressing that?

So here we are, addressing it.

We have put together real and honest courses, full of quick and easy techniques, application tips and tricks, consultation guidance and the type of theory that WILL actually help you through this era of ever growing, amazing but demanding trends.

Theres no hiding from it, Balayage is here and its here to stay. As the trend continues to evolve, we are bombarded with so many images! One with largely stretched roots -tipping more towards ombre ..and another with mildly shadowed roots  -which looks more like a "lived in" set of hi lights.

So with all these different images booked into your column under "Balayage", where do you start? 

This course is designed for any colourist, if your new to Balayage or Babylights, or just wanting to expand your knowledge and get your techniques perfect!


•Both our Balayage and Babylight techniques and how to cooporate the two.
