Being stuck in a hair rut is the absolute worst. One way to breathe new life into your hair is by changing the colour.
To Ombre? or to Balayage? that is the question. Really it isn’t because we are always coming up with new colouring techniques. As creative people we love to find new ways to create beautiful hair effects. Which popular hair colour technique will you try next.
To explain but a few of our techniques.
Balayage, a highlighting technique, a colorist paints bleach or haircolour just on the surface of your hair freehand; he or she doesn’t saturate the entire section with hairdye. The result is soft, natural-looking, sun-kissed highlights that easily blend in as hair grows longer.
Ombre, your root haircolour gradually fades into a much lighter haircolour at the ends, such as blonde. If your hair isn’t already dark, you may want your colorist to deepen your natural shade at the roots for a more dramatic Ombre effect.
Highlights, sections of hair dyed lighter than your natural shade. They can be used to give hair dimension, accentuate facial features or slim down your face. They’re the opposite of lowlights, which are strands of hair that are dyed darker than your natural shade. To add highlights to your hair, your colorist may use one of two techniques: foil highlighting and Balayage.
