We are shouting it from the rooftops, ECSTATIC AND OH-SO PROUD to announce that we have won the highly coveted 2018 Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough award for our Light Works™ Balayage Highlighting Kit.

By now, you probably know about Light Works, the first of its kind at-home balayage highlighting kit. This innovative kit features an ammonia-free, clay-based cream formula for goof-proof application, plus a patent-pending Wishbone balayage applicator for precise, natural-looking balayage (no spots, no stripes), and the real clincher? It comes with a salon-secret toning glaze to perfect the tone of highlights, just as a salon does, enhancing condition and shine.

As Amy Errett, Founder & CEO of Madison Reed, says, “With the introduction of Light Works, we reinvented highlighting and made it attainable for women to achieve ‘lived-in’ highlights for hundreds of dollars less than you’d spend at a salon. We are thrilled to have Light Works receive the recognition of Allure’s Best of Beauty Breakthrough award.”

So what’s so special about this award? Pretty much everything.
