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!)


Balayage is a very subtle natural lightening technique that has dimension, aka lowlights between the blondes. The transition is more natural and it is less contrast as the ends also have your natural colour in between the lighter one. Basically, this look will require less maintenance as it offers more like a strongly sun kissed hair colour.

Beach Blonde Hair (BB Hair)

Beach Blonde or as we call it BB Hair, is our favourite of favourites. The BB Hair colour is exactly what the name says: hair that looks like it got blonde by spending too much time on the beach. This can be adjusted to every hair colour, so even if you are naturally darker, there are many nice shades that can offer this hot look. The BB Hair colour is very popular, mainly because it maintains a very natural look and has the lowest maintenance when it comes to hair colour.

Now pick your favourite, look up some photos and bring them is.

Get ready to lighten up your look and enjoy the summer with a new hair colour!
