The Top 5 Takeaways from the EBS Balayage Guide 

If you’re anything like us, you probably read through the hundreds of emails and blog posts that offer FREE downloads and premium education with an attitude that’s something like, “OK, cool, thanks for the info, but what’s actually in it for me?”

If you’re going to download something and invest your precious time into it (and we’re not being sarcastic when we say precious, if you’re a cosmetologist trying to build a thriving career and run a balanced life, your time is absolutely precious), you want to know it’s worth it, it’s valuable, and that it’s going to change your life or career for the better.

Good news—that’s exactly what this blog is all about.

We’re breaking down our EBS Stylist Balayage Guide—AKA, the ultimate guide to everything you’d ever need to know about balayage.

We’ll be upfront with you, this guide is jam-freakin’-packed with exceptional, applicable info that you need to become a balayage beauty pro, but we also know that it’s kinda hard to commit to downloading something like this if you don’t know what’s in it.

So, today, we’re going to give you a little deep-dive into what you can expect in this guide—we’re willing to bet that you’ll be so down to download the entire, comprehensive guide once you read through this post. 

Need-to-Know Balayage Basics (For Every Experience Level)

Sometimes, it helps to go right back to the basics—even if you’ve been balayaging for years. Our guide is going to give you the inside scoop on the very foundation of balayaging.

Not only will you—finally—get the inside scoop on how the heck to pronounce balayage (minor, but important), but you’ll also get some background on the balayage style, a look at what got the trend going, and some insight on why it’s the ultimate, go-to look for so many people. Consider this your much-needed balayage history lesson. 

Step-by-Step Balayage Guide 

We’ve got actual, actionable steps in a totally comprehensive cheat sheet when you download the Balayage eBook. From easy-to-follow instructions on color melt balayage sectioning and facelift balayage sectioning to ombre and sombre balayage sectioning, our guide has a little bit of everything for you. 

Plus, we’ve got tons of pro tips and additional resources in the guide that you can keep on hand at all times to help you deliver the best-of-the-best balayage styles 

Clear Directions on How to Talk to Your Clients About Balayage 

That background we offer you in the first part of the guide will help you do this, but we have an entire section in the eBook dedicated to really sealing the deal on balayage with your clients (new and regulars).

Consider this section your go-to, all-inclusive, comprehensive marketing guide to get the ball rollin’ on balayage as part of your service list. 

Tips & Tricks to Becoming a Balayage Master

We can write down all the steps in the world, but if we’re not giving you actionable tips and new techniques to try, we’re doing you a disservice. Luckily, we don’t believe in doing our beauty babes any disservices—so you better believe this guide is filled with techniques to help you master the balayage.

It’s truly an art form, and while you can’t always teach every aspect of art, this section is going to help you understand balayage better than ever—especially through a creative lens that’s so necessary to completing a gorgeous balayage look. 

A Breakdown of the Different Types of Balayage (Must-Know Info)

We def hint at this in the earlier sections of the eBook, but we take it full-breakdown style and hammer out the differences between the different types of balayages and techniques.

Why is it so important? Because you need to know how to get your clients what they want. If someone comes in for a full-on Balayage but you opt for giving them an accidental ombre, it’s likely they’re not going to be thrilled.

Knowing what your clients want and being able to recommend the right style and technique are all things that show your target market that you’re a badass beautician who knows what they’re doing.
