Matrix 4D Foilayage Technique: high-contrast blonding in just 4 steps

Now Matrix makes it possible to create dimensional, high contrast blonding results in less time than traditional balayage with the 4D Foilayage technique!

Thanks to Matrix, obtaining high-contrast blonding using a Foilayage Technique just got quicker and easier! 4D Foilayage creates dimensional, high contrast blonding results in less time than traditional balayage. This new technique can help stylists maximize time and minimize hair damage. Plus, using the Matrix Pre-Bonded Lightening Portfolio* helps keep hair healther with 92% less breakage.

4D? Just ask George!

Obviously, it is no surprise that Matrix Brand Ambassador and Celebrity Stylist, George Papanikolas was the mastermind behind this new technique. “4D Foilayage is a quick, high-impact technique that my celebrity clients love. I use Matrix Pre-Bonded formulas for all-around perfect, protected results!” says Papanikolas.

indeed, by combining balayage, foils, and Pre-Bonded formulas, stylists will be able to achieve a greater lift and beautifully blended dimension. Even better, this works especially well on clients with darker hair colors. Level, tone, strategic placement, and protection are the key elements. In this way, clients can immediately see and feel the difference with “4D” hair results.

According to George, the key to 4D Foilayage success is to use Matrix Light Master Pre-Bonded Lightener. “It lets me push the limits of my artistry without compromising the integrity of the hair,” he says.

When it comes to toning, George uses ultra-conditioning SoColor Sync Pre-Bonded Acidic and Alkaline Toners. “They give me the versatility of saturated or sheer color for an all-around perfect protected finish.

Finally, George concludes with Matrix Unbreak My Blonde haircare system. Remember, this 3-part system features citric acid to reinforce weakened bonds after coloring, leaving hair 3X stronger, shinier, and softer.

Step by step – easy as pie!

Even better, George broke down his 4D Foilayage technique into four simple steps and incorporated two time-saving secrets: Foils and Matrix Pre-Bonded formulas.

  1. Grab your Light Master Pre-Bonded Lightener and choose your developer volume based on your client’s starting level.
  2. Section the hair strategically for maximum impact and 4D dimension.
  3. Backcomb each section, place it on a piece of foil and apply the lightener in a V-shaped pattern. Insulate your section and repeat!
  4. Apply your SoColor Sync Pre-Bonded Toner formulas for ultra-conditioned and shiny results!
