Color is the visual perception of the reflection of light. Without light, there would be no color.
Ombre is describes as the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark. The technique is commonly seen as a surface treatment in fashion and art. During the early 21st century it became a popular feature for hair coloring, nail art, and even baking, in addition to its uses in home decorating and graphic design.
Ombre hair color is generally darker at the roots through the mid shaft and then gradually gets lighter from the mid shaft to the ends. It is usually achieved using a balayage technique and is ideal for clients looking for a low maintenance style. The hair world borrowed the term ‘Ombre’ from the french word meaning shaded or shading. “Ombré means going darker at the root and gradually getting lighter through the mid-shaft to the ends of your hair”. The beauty of ombré is that it can work for any hair type or color. If the hair is highlighted already, I just paint on a ‘fake’ root and make it look like the color has grown out for a few months.
Balayage is the French way of highlighting hair, which is known for giving a youthful look, no commitment to color, and a graceful regrowth. Is a piece of art in which I uniquely Design the color for each individual client.
“Balayage is a French word for sweep or paint,”. “Technically, it means that you area-painting highlights on the hair in a sweeping motion.” Highlights will be in chunkier sections, making it seem like the sun naturally lightened the hair; It allows for a sun kissed natural looking hair color, just like nature give us as children, Because no foils or meche is used to apply the product, sections are less saturated than typical highlights and regrowth lines are less noticeable. The idea being less is more when creating soft natural looks. Your hair will look just as good whether it’s one week or one month from your initial salon appointment.
