What is balayage hair coloring?

The Balayage technique is all about how the color is applied. The word originates from the french 'to sweep,' and lightener is free-hand painted onto the hair. Balayage is completely customizable to each individual client, and it is often chosen when the client is seeking 'natural' or 'sun-kissed' highlights.

With Balayage the transition between dark and light is much more gradual and more natural looking, and all the ends may not be completely treated with color, unlike an ombré. The aim is to make it seem like the hair has natural highlights from exposure to the sun.

Balayage grows out beautifully and more naturally so you don’t get an obvious regrowth line, and you can wear it for longer between appointments. The balayage technique works perfectly for light hair, dark hair, blonde hair, red hair, brunette and even black hair. Almost anyone can enjoy this timeless look. And the combination of balayage plus ombre is simply 'Wow!'

Oh so Ombré

Ombré hair color
What is ombré hair coloring?

The term 'ombré' comes from the french word 'shadow.' It refers to a gradual fading out of color from its darkest shade to its lightest. In many cases it means having your hair fading from dark brown at the roots to lighter blonde at the ends.

If you’re looking to shake things up but aren’t sure if a drastic change of hair color is the way to go, ombré might be just the thing for you.

Sombre is simply a more subtle version of ombré. With sombre the color transition is more gradual. Ombré and sombre are fun and easy ways to liven up your hairstyle.
