Congratulations to Emma Porcellato from Guelph. ON, on her first-place win in the “So You Think You Can Style?” Beautiful Balayage photo contest.
Porcellato has been a hairstylist for four years and specializes in updos, finishing and balayage techniques.
“I was inspired to get my client summer ready when I created this look, so I opted for a subtle balayage,” says Porcellato.
“To create the look, I started with Matrix Lightmaster and 20 developer,” she explains. “Next, I sectioned out four quadrants and worked on diagonals, weaving small sections which lifted to a level nine. I then toned with Matrix Color Sync 8V+8A at the root and 9V+9N on the ends.”
“To finish the look, I used Matrix Biolage RAW Heat Styling Primer on wet hair and then blow dried smooth. I curled the hair and finished off the look with Matrix High Amplify Hairspray.
Congratulations also goes out to our second-place winner, April McDougald, and our third-place winner, Natalie Walls.
