What’s The Difference Between Ombré and Balayage?

When it comes to hair colour, one of the most popular questions asked by many of our guests is ‘balayage or ombré – which one is right for me?’  It is understandable that confusion may arise when trying to distinguish between these two hair colour techniques.  The aim of this article is help you feel more confident about choosing the right hair colour for you – although we are always here to help and guide you.  

Ombré Hair Colours at Top Hair Salon in Sutton Coldfield

ombre hair colour, balayage at top hair salon in Sutton ColdfieldThe word ombré is derived from the French term for ‘shadow’. 

It is a popular look defined by hair that is dark at the root, and blends into a lighter shade as it gets to the ends. 

This gives you a more defined colour which often looks a little ‘two tone.’ 

We can create ombré using a multitude of colours to give you a completely tailored hair colour.

Using a freehand technique, our hair colour experts can literally place colour highlights vertically exactly where you want them. 

The transition between colours is more natural than with ombre, often giving a sun-kissed look. 

 However, this look can be as subtle or as dramatic as you wish – and we can use a variety of colours from brunettes, reds and blondes to fashion colours. 



The Colour Melting Trend

colour melt, hair salon, sutton coldfieldColour melting involves blending multiple shades of hair colour so it looks like they are melting into one another. 

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 or an eye-catching blue to green melt. 

By adding multiple highlights in similar tones we can create a gorgeous blend.
