DIY Dark Brown Balayage At Home With A BRUSH!

I love a good balayge or ombré, but they can be pricey if you get someone else to color your hair. I recently did a dark brown Balayage on a wig from Uni Wigs. I think it’s an easy way to get a gorgeous, natural color without too much commitment. Of course, you can go lighter with stronger developers especially if you want a blonde balayage or if you want to add some other color and it can be done in four easy steps at home.

Here’s what you need:

  1. Your natural hair or extensions.
  2. Hair brush
  3. Rat tail comb (optional)
  4. One ‘n Only powder lightener 16oz
  5. Argan oil 20 volume cream developer
  6.  Mixing bowl
  7. Gloves
  8. Long tail bleach and tint brush

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1: Mixing Ingredients

You want to put two or three scoops of powder lightener in a mixing bowl and then mix in some 20 volume developer. If you want a blonde balayage, use 40 volume developer. Mix the ingredients together with a bleach brush to your desired consistency. I prefer mine to be like a milkshake because I don’t want it to be too runny.
