“Ombre” is the French word for “two-toned,” which reflects the precise effect this color style creates. Typically, an ombre hair color treatment involves darkening the roots and gradually lightening the color as you move through the ends. For a more subtle effect, try fading brunette into blonde. If you want a more striking look, ask your hairstylist to blend the two colors a bit less.


hair colorIn French, “balayage” translates to “sweep.” Developed in the 1970s, this technique foregoes foils and uses the hands to administer color. During your balayage color treatment, your hairstylist will apply color in both horizontal and vertical strokes, producing highlights that look sun-kissed and natural.
