Welcome to the Hair Colorist World of Hair Painting: the most Desirable Hair Coloring Techniques!  

 

Ok, I know you're all wanting clarity on these oh so popular phrases... Ombré, Balayage, Sombre, Babylights...!

Are you feeling like your left out of this whole new language and vocab while talking to your girlfriends about the latest trends in hair coloring? 

Do you want a completely customized hair color service that is still budget friendly and low maintenance?

I will fill you in on the latest techniques in hair coloring and get you all caught up on your trendy hair vocab. So, let's get it started! 

 

Ombré- yes, we all know, the trend is still going strong. For those of you loving the look of your natural base color at the roots transitioning down to much lighter ends, this is all you. You get the best of both worlds. Depth of darkness mixed with lightness and brightness, while still having almost no worries of upkeep.

Sombre-comes next. Basically it's you're perfect compromise of ombré and traditional highlights from the scalp. It's still a very soft graduation in color from darker roots down to lighter ends, but the blending starts closer to the root and much softer. Resulting in a more blended, lighter, brighter overall color than the ombré technique. It still has lots of dimension, color variations and still lower maintenance than a traditional highlight which is placed right at the scalp. It's main benefit over ombré is the brighter accentuations placed around the face. This is also, a great transition color from an ombré by breaking up the depth of darkness on the crown of the head.

Babylights- basically explains itself. Instead of being hair inspired by the magazine pages of super models we go back to the most desirable hair color by everyone, since forever ago. Babies Hair! It's literally the most incredible perfection of highlights and of course it's NATURAL. Ugh, and they have no clue how lucky they are or how much we would pay to have their hair! So, once we get over all that envy... I have good news, we now have the education, tools and techniques to steal their thunder. 

Balayage- is the technique ladies. It's our joy and pleasure as stylist to truly paint our art onto your hair. This is what starts to separate hair dressers from true color specialist. We seek out the textures in your hair, the variations in length and your face structure to highlight key places we'd really like light to reflect. Light reflection is key. It's what each and every one of us love about a picture. Those geourgous Victoria's Secret Models with the most fabulous hair are filtered with the industries best lighting and magical sun beams. Which, is the flickers of brightness making us all super jealous with hair envy... Amongst other envy ; ) Now, this is the goal we seek to shine with the talented artistry of freehand placement and techniques.

 

So, there it is in a nutshell.
