The Money Piece™ Everyone Wants with Kristen Linares, Product Club

The trend of face-framing highlights has evolved from subtle sparkle to in-your-face to bold chunks over the years. As of now we are entering a time where we are referring to these highlights as “The Money Piece” as trademarked by Sunlights Balayage. The on-trend “Money Piece” is influenced by the strong ribbons of color we saw in the 90s. In order to create a modern version of this look it’s important we understand how to recreate and also keep from recreating the same exact look. During this session, Kristen will teach you the cause and effect of foil and balayage placement, subtle and bold placement, and how to accent the clients part and texture of hair. Get ready to feel completely confident anytime your clients ask you to create this trending look!
