How To: Balayage Ambré

Painting with INOABalayage Ambré

2019 celebrates 10 years of INOA Ammonia-Free Hair Color. Thank you for elevating our industry every day with your expertise, technique, and beautiful artistry with INOA.

 

To kick off our celebration, we are launching the latest color story and pairing it with our tried and true technique – Balayage Ambré. The L’Oréal Professionnel Balayage Method paired with INOA’s perfectly balanced cool and warm shades – for that Ambré effect. To get that result, choose a double-tone shade with both warm and cool reflects – or pair shades together from opposite ends of the spectrum. Painting with INOA offers the ultimate personalization with natural-looking color results for your clients and highlights your professional difference.

 

Below, we display the work of our Artist Laura Gibson. Check out more of her work on Instagram. If you want to know more about INOA or INOA High Resist, the information is available to you!
