Balayage and ombre highlighting techniques are designed to create a very soft natural look Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour similar to what nature gives us as children with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks. Ombre refers to the dark roots/light ends effect. This technique also produces sun-kissed, natural looking colour as if you had been on the Riviera. Both techniques can be manipulated and played with to produce the most beautifully on trend haircolour, or the softest sun-kissed look ever.
