What’s The Difference Between Balayage and Ombré?
Balayage and ombré highlighting techniques are designed to create a very soft natural look.
If you’re looking for sun-kissed hair colour that is low maintenance and super cool, ask your hair designer about transforming your hair using the balayage technique. Balayage means ‘to sweep’ or ‘to paint’ in French. The principal idea is to create soft, natural looks, with the finish being very soft with less noticeable regrowth lines. Your hair will have a casual, beachy finish with less symmetrical, random highlights. This looks great on thick hair that sits below the shoulders and it can be worn straight or wavy. It grows out beautifully and more naturally than other hair colouring techniques, so you don’t get an obvious regrowth line between appointments.
Ombré refers to the dark roots/light ends effect. This technique also produces sun-kissed, natural looking colour. Both techniques can be manipulated and played with to produce the most beautifully on trend hair colour, or the softest sun-kissed look ever. Ombré is usually created with around half to two thirds of your hair being a more defined colour than the rest.
