Get Ready for A Better Balayage With Matrix’s Two New Color Innovations


If you’re looking to take your salon’s balayage service to the next level, start by adding Matrix products into the mix. The professional haircare and hair color brand just released the perfect duo for achieving a flawless balayage look—and trust us, you’re going to want to get your hands on it ASAP.

The two new color innovations that make up this duo are the Open Air Pre-Bonded and SoColor Sync Acidic Neutral Gold Ash Toners. Working together, these products protect the integrity of the hair when lightening and toning as well as produce the most beautiful bronde results.

For its part, the Open Air Pre-Bonded gives stylists the power to balayage every pattern and texture flawlessly every single time. This clay lightener is formulated with citric acid and glycine to protect hair fibers during the lightening process. Its whipped clay texture perfectly saturates and forms to hair’s natural bends making it suitable to use all hair types and texture. Plus, this powerful lightener lifts up to 7 levels so you’ll definitely want to have it on hand at your next color appointment.

As for the SoColor Sync Acidic Toners, they are available in beautiful bronde shades—which comes in three levels: 6NGA, 7NGA, 9NGA— that provide the perfect mix of cool and warm tones for lived-in, multi-dimensional results. Similar to all SoColor Sync shades, these new bronde toners are formulated with bonder mixed in each tube to help protect all hair types while providing gorgeous shine and ultra-conditioned results.

When it comes to using this balayage duo, stylists will want to be sure to paint precisely on all hair patterns with the Open Air Pre-Bonded first before using the new SoColor Sync Acidic toners to get the perfect golden bronde.

Currently, Matrix’s Open Air Pre-Bonded and SoColor Sync Acidic NGA Toners are available in Matrix salons.
