What Is Ombre? 

Ombre is a color technique that creates a two-toned color that usually results in darker hair at the top and a subtle lighter color at the end of the hair. In theory, clients can achieve an ombre effect with just about any hair color. If it is your desire, you can create ombre hair in tones of blonde, red, brown, purple, pink, and even blue. Ombre hair can be personalized to fit short, medium, or long length hair. Your colorist will work with your to determine the best option for your hair length and type. Ombre hair does not require as much touch up as other coloring services so clients can enjoy their ombre look for some time to come.

What Is Balayage?

Balayage is usually performed on medium to long lengthed hair. Similar to ombre, balayage does not require frequent trips to the salon. Bayalage is a great option for clients who want a  beautiful, low maintenance color.
