Joanna explained that it is “a similar technique to balayage where a lightener is applied in a sweeping technique.” Joanna revealed she “didn’t want to over-highlight because we wanted her to read rich brunette, so they were strategically placed.” After her highlights were done processing, Joanna toned her hair with a warm chestnut gloss, “that gave her a uniform rich tone and reflected a youthful shine.”
