Ombré or Balayage – Which Hair Colour Is Right For Me?

It seems like every season, a new hair trend is coming out. Of course, this creates confusion, with many women unsure about how to ask for the look they desire. At ZIGZAG Hair Studios, our hair colour technicians are experts in handling common questions such as ‘What hair colour technique will best suit me?’ and ‘What is the difference between balayage and ombré’ and ‘what is colour melting?’  To help you get a look you’ll love, here are the highlights of what each trend means and the results that can be realistically achieved.  Whichever look you desire, our hair colour technicians have been highly trained to apply the colour to achieve the look you’re after.

Beautiful Balayage Hair Colours for Women

You have seen the word everytime you read your favourite hair magazine, but you are still not sure if balayage hair colour is right for you? Rest assured that all hair types can benefit from it, when it comes to adding shine and dimension. The word ‘balayage’ means to “paint” or “sweep” in French. It is a technique that our expert hair colour stylist can use to apply highlights to your hair. By using this technique, we can add your hair colour exactly where you want it. So if you are after honey, maple or sunset tones the dye will be applied to the hair freehand, using vertical strokes, to paint the colour onto the hair. The look can be as subtle or as dramatic as you wish.

The Best Ombré Hair Colours in Milton Keynes

If you prefer to dip your toe into a hair colour trend rather than dye your entire head, ombré is the way to go. The word ombré is derived from the French term for ‘shadow’. This gives you a more defined colour which often looks a little ‘two tone.’  Whether you want a subtle look where the transition is not so strong or one that is taken to the extreme  — where your hair goes from dark brown to light blonde, or even from your natural colour to a shade of the rainbow, we can create ombré using a multitude of colours.

The Colour Melting Trend

Ombré hair is evolving yet again, coming in hot this time with a more diffused look called colour-melting.  Colour melting blends multiple shades of hair colour with your base hair colour, so you don’t have any harsh lines.  By adding multiple highlights in similar tones we can create a gorgeous blend. For example, if you are naturally a brunette, we might add several shades of brunette which melts into a beautiful golden colour.  Colour melting also works if you have a fashion colour as your base – perhaps a pretty pink, lilac or rose gold colour.
