Balayage is a French word meaning “to paint”. A Balayage treatment is essentially hair painting. The Hair Stylist paints color onto chunky sections of the hair or a few strands. When a hair colorist is coloring the hair, the majority of the brush strokes are horizontal to coat the front and back of the hair strands.Balayage creates depth and dimension, and leaves you with a sun-kissed finish.
Ombre Hair Coloring
An Ombre hair color treatment is the latest in hair coloring trends. Ombre hair color incorporates light-colored streaks underneath the hair, usually fading from a darker color near the roots to a lighter one at the ends. An Ombre hair color treatment can be very subtle or very striking. The look you want to achieve will depend on the technique and level of lightness.
