What's The Difference Between Balayage And Ombre
Tell me which one is Ombre and which one is Balayage? If you’ve ever seen either of these hair styles, you know that there’s very little difference in their appearance. And If you’re looking to add some dimension to your hair and ask your stylist to make a “Ombre Balayage” for you. I think it will be awkward that your hairdresser will ask you again which one do you want.

There actually is a big difference between the Ombre and balayage if you ask for these two in salon. You may want to know the difference so as to accurately determine which you really want and avoid embarrassment.


Balayage is a Kind of “Technique” Balayage is a Kind of “Technique”
Ombre and balayage are look very similar, but there are very obvious distinctions between thm! Balayage, which is French for "sweeping," refers to a hair coloring technique that creates gradual, sweeping highlights that are painted on the hair to create a more seamless, blended and natural sun-kissed look. Now, if you have ever seen someone get a balayage in the salon, this probably makes sense to you. When applying the color for a balayage, you sweep the color through small triangle sections of the hair onto a board or foil, giving it the natural transition down into the lighter color. In Balayage, there are dark pieces left on the bottom to create dimension and a more natural look. This technique looks like natural sun-kissed highlights throughout the hair. The transition is more natural and it is less maintenance than an ombre.

Ombre is the hair style that took the world by storm as of late. And it it just that, the style of your hair is ombre. This comes from the French word, “shadow” and therefore, reflects a shadow. Its traditional style goes from a darker shade at the roots to a lighter one on the ends. Generally, ombres work best on brunettes because it is the least subtle of all the techniques. This gives it a more natural look and it can be grown out without needing to be redone for much longer than if you naturally have very light hair. Therefore, it’s also a great transition hairstyle to have.

And the other kind of ombre is called Reverse OmbreReverse Ombre Hair
Reverse ombre is exactly what it sounds like, the shade gradual turn lighter from ends to roots. With the lightest color at your roots, this style is most dramatic when you have naturally lighter hair. Just note this look will involve more maintenance to keep up, but is totally gorg if you’re up for it.
