In other words, if you want a sun-kissed and multi-tonal result, then the Balayage technique is right for you.

Balayage and Ombre are often confused, but those two are different.

Balayage Vs Ombre

Balayage is a beautifully blended highlighting process that grows lighter towards the ends of the hair. There are different types of balayage, including color melting and root stretching. In comparison, Ombre is a bolder hair color technique where you can generally see a contrast between the hair colors used as it grows from darker roots to lighter ends. Now you can even try to reverse ombre, where lighter roots grow into much darker ends.
