One trend that continues to thrive in 2017 and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon is, you guessed it, balayage. The technique is praised and continually used for the natural looking highlights it aims to create. What would you say, though, if we told you some stylists are applying balayage without any brushes or tools but simply their hands?
Enter palm painting: the application of the balayage technique by painting color into hair with your palms instead of a brush. The inventor of the technique is the color director at Neville Hair and Beauty in London, Marcos Verissimo.

Verissimo and other fans of the technique say palm painting takes balayage one step further by avoiding harsh lines and stripes created from brushes and other highlighting tools. Palm painting is meant to give clients a more natural, sun-highlighted look that’s totally streak-free because it follows no patterns or structure.

We can certainly see some issues with this ‘technique’ Would you give up your trusted tools and opt to paint hair free hand? Or is the thought shear madness?
