What’s The Difference Between Balayage, Ombré & Sombré?
Balayage is a subtly blended highlighting technique which grows gradually lighter towards the ends of the hair. There are many varieties of balayage including babylights, root stretching or colour melting.
Ombré is a more bold hair colouring technique with a marked contrast between the hair colours used as it graduates from darker roots to lighter ends. You can also try a reverse ombré, a popular technique where lighter roots graduate into darker hair colour at the ends.
Balayage and Ombré are quite similar and can be easily confused, which is why it is so important to have an in-depth colour consultation with one of our hair colour experts so we can help to decide which hair colour technique is the best for you.
Sombré is a popular, more subtle version of ombré. The appearance of darker roots is less harsh and the lighter hair colour melts into the darker tones. Sombré goes beyond balayage and works with multiple shades and tones throughout the hair to add dimension and texture to your hair colour.
