What Is The Difference Between Beach Blonde Hair, Balayage and Ombre?

More and more often we find people wondering about the difference between balayage, ombre, sombre and other terms that are not quite clear what they are. To help you understand more about these techniques, we put together a little description to help you choose the look you are after, but keep in mind that it’s always a great help if you bring photos of the desired look for your appointment.


To begin with Ombre, you need to know that the main characteristic is having more contrast between the ends of your hair and the roots, but with a nice, smooth transition in between. There is no dimension or various shades in the bottom of your hair, it is a more block colour but it can look very elegant when done professionally. This option is a bolder choice for those you like people to notice their hair, but it is essential to keep it classy. When the technique is not wright, it can look like a dip dye (dipping your hair in bleach and voila!)
