Color Tips From Bassett’s “You Belong” Event!

By | March 22nd, 2019

Highlighted by two days of hands-on education, Bassett Salon Solutions collective brand event—a “Balayage and Beyond” class—asked the question, “What is Balayage?” We chatted with Keune Educator and Academy Trainer Alicia Orabella to learn more, especially about the color tips she shared at the event!!


More than 100 stylists attended the sold-out event in Concord, California. In the “Balayage and Beyond” class, stylists learned the top highlighting techniques using Keune’s new Freedom Blonde Clay Lightener.


Takeaways From “You Belong” 

We chatted with Alicia Orabella and she told us some of the takeaways from the event. “We shared three new freehand techniques. From a complete balayage and a color melt to a root smudge, these three techniques ensure lightness and dimension throughout. We demoed Keune’s new Freedom Blonde Clay Lightener, Keune Semi Color, the CARE Vital Nutrition Line, and Bond Fusio to achieve the best results.”



Alicia’s Go-To Products For Healthy Blondes

“Once I perform a blonding service,” Alicia added. “I always treat my guest’s hair with the Keune CARE Vital Nutrition Line. The Mask fortifies the hair and evens out the porosity, leaving the hair feeling soft and supple. Then, I follow up with Keune CARE Protein Spray and leave it in to prep the hair before toning.”



Alicia’s Tried-And-True Color Formula

Alicia has great advice when it comes to color formulations. “Pre-lighten hair (to a level 8 to 10) with Keune Freedom Blonde Clay Lightener. One of my favorite go-to formulas is to apply equal parts Keune Semi Color 7.18 Medium Metallic Blonde and Semi Clear Double Semi Activator on the base, and equal parts 10.81 Lightest Barista Blonde and Clear on the mid-shaft through the ends for a beautifully toned warm blonde.”
