 My Balayage Journey

It was August of 2015 and I was hungry for education. I was living in Houston, Texas and was striving to grow as an artist and business owner. I was in love with my craft and wanted to be the best artist I could be. I think my goal in my head was I wanted to be ready for absolutely anything that walked in the door. This was when balayage was first introduced mainstream. Remember? It all started with ombres that looked like your hair was dipped in bleach. (Thank goodness we got away from that) and transitioned into everyone wanting natural looking highlights with a soft transition that you could ONLY get with balayage.


As an educator for Alterna Haircare I knew the power of education. I found Sunlights Balayage and started with one tube of lightener. When it came in there was a flyer advertising their education that year. I tried their lightener, but didn't know how to mix it properly, I made it too runny, but I was smart enough to know that I obviously wasn't doing something right, so I signed up for Candy's balayage bootcamp in Buckhead Atlanta just around the corner from her 52 chair salon she owns there. At the time it was around a $2,000 trip and it was worth every. single. penny.


We all have moments that we remember as turning points in our career or maybe several "ah-ha" moments that shifted our career for the better. This was one of mine.


I came back and as I mastered these techniques my business boomed. Balayage ignited a passion for my craft and gave me freedom to create and be artistic in a way that couldn't happen with standard foil applications. It completely changed my career and jump started my journey as a blonding specialist and balayage expert.

Fast forward four years, I was living in Vicksburg, Mississippi and saw where Sunlights Balayage was taking applications for a Train the Trainer event they did once a year.

I applied and in February of 2019 was chosen, along with other hand selected balayage believers, to attend Train the Trainer at Sunlights HQ in Atlanta hosted by Candy Shaw and became part of the Sunlights Artisan team. The Sunlights Artisan Team is made up of talented artists from all over that come to Train the Trainer to find the best ways to communicate and teach all things balayage with the rest of the world.


We are taught tips and tricks to share with you to transform how you paint behind the chair. We train to be the best educators we can be, so we can bring it back to our little area of the world and make it available to other artists in a local and affordable way. You don't have to travel to New York or Atlanta to receive the latest in balay news. It's available right here in your backyard. If you are a beginner or an established artist, we have a class for you. 

Here's to spreading the Balay Gospel and growing careers. I can't wait to meet you and be a part of your Sunlight's Balayage Journey! Unleash your inner artist and let me help you transform your career with the freedom of balayage. Follow me on Eventbrite to find upcoming classes or contact me to host a class in your salon.
