BALAYAGE vs OMBRÉ
What's the difference and what's right for you?
This is a hand-pained colour technique where the bottom part of the hair is gradually lighter than the top. This gives the appearance of sun kissed hair that’s grown out. It’s popular because it’s low maintenance (no growth at the roots) and the look is natural with soft unsymmetrical lines. It has a casual beachy finish. Fantastic with straight or wavy hair and best for hair that is shoulder length or longer. Balayage has been pretty huge in hair world for the past few years and it’s still bang on trend if that’s a look you’d like to explore.
Similar to balayage but with a more defined difference between lightened and darker roots. Unlike balayage that plays with the existing tones in the hair, ombré is more dramatic. Wavy and curly hair are a great match for ombré because the curls help to blend the two dynamic shades. Half or even two thirds of the hair shaft receives the colour and you’ll see a pretty bold line in the change of colour. If you’re into a dramatic and more fashionable look, then ombré is for you.
Another hot trend from the past couple of years. This is where instead of a full head of colour, colour is applied only to the ends of the hair. Dip-dyeing is as it’s sounds, like your hair is simply dipped into the colour. This is a fantastic option if you like playing with bold colours and like a funky playful look.
