Ombre and Balayage
Professional Stylists in Summerville, SC
Are you tired of plain old brown hair? If you are looking up new styles, you may be coming across words that seem confusing. “Balayage” is one such word. It is actually a French technique for highlighting the hair in which the dye is painted on in such a way as to create a graduated, natural-looking effect. The goal is to create soft, natural-looking highlights that look like your hair has been kissed by the sun. It is somewhat similar to “Ombre,” but there is a difference.
While Balayage is the technique of painting the hair, ombre is the style of the hair. It is the transition of a lighter shade from a darker shade. Generally, ombres work best on brunettes, but it can be done on blondes in a slightly different variation. To achieve the effect of an Ombre, it is crucial to have a nice transition between the colors. While the Ombre is a beautiful look, it is also something that needs to be done right by professionals. A bad Ombre is exactly that- bad!
