Coloring techniques for gorgeous hair

Have you ever noticed how children’s hair gets beautiful, natural highlights when they are out in the sun?

Ombre hair and balayage are two popular hair coloring techniques that help achieve a similar result through coloring. Though they are similar, there are distinct differences that your hairdresser will help you determine whether you’re an ombre or a balayage kind of girl. We at joz salon suggest always visit your hairdresser  to get color done.  Ombre and balayage are often confused due to their similarities, but there are some important differences to note.

Ombre

Ombre hair is the gradual lightening of the hair strand, usually fading from a darker color near the roots to a lighter one at the ends. The word ombre is a French word meaning “as two-toned”. Ombre can be very subtle or very striking. The look you want to achieve will depend on the technique and level of lightness.

Balayage

Balayage is French meaning “to sweep.” The balayage technique was developed in France in 1970’s and is called a freehand technique as the colorist applies color with hands rather than foiling. When the color is being applied, the majority of the brush strokes are horizontal in nature to coat the front and back of the hair strands. In balayage, the colorist “sweeps” vertically with the tip of the brush and only to the front of the hair. This creating natural, sun kissed highlights. Balayage is currently the most requested coloring technique in our  salons today with lots of celebrities doing their hair in this fashion.
