Ombré, Balayage & Colour Melts – How Do They Differ?

What is the difference between balayage and ombré and what is colour melting?  The aim of this article is to explain the various hair colour techniques we use here at our Birmingham hair salon.  Whichever look you desire, our hair colour technicians have been highly trained to apply the colour to achieve the look you’re after.

Beautiful Balayage Hair Colours for Women

Like a forever best friend, Balayage hair colour is here to stay. With this hair painting technique, our expert hair colour technicians can achieve many different looks on your hair. The lightener or hair colour is painted on using vertical strokes, to create a graduated, natural-looking effect from end to root. It is all about creating beautiful blends of multi-dimensional colour. We can add your hair colour exactly where you want it for a natural looking sun-kissed result. The 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 Best Ombré Hair Colours in Birmingham

If a more defined colour ‘two tone’ hair colour is more your thing, ombré hair is one colour choice that’s still going strong. The 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 and lighter shade as it gets to the ends.   We can create ombré using a multitude of colours.

The Colour Melting Trend

By adding multiple highlights in similar tones we can create a gorgeous blend using the colour melting technique. Colour melting blends multiple shades of hair colour with your base hair colour. Colour is applied evenly from root to tip, often through freehand techniques, to create a very natural spectrum of colour and a seamless flow. Colours can be overlapped and we can achieve your desired look using dark to light or light to dark. For example, 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.
