Ombre , sombre or balayage…are we talking about hair?
Whatever you want to call it, it’s simply this: soft , ” grown-out” looking colour. It’s a more natural looking technique to highlights and multi-dimensional colour. It isn’t a saturated, solid coverage , instead it’s a soft , multi-dimensional colour that’s strategically placed.
Whether you’re wearing a bob, lob or long hair, this look works. There’s less demanding upkeep , and regrowth is more gentle. Start with a great haircut , as always, since this colour is meant to be complementing. Then book in for your custom colour! Warm, brown, and beige tones , blonde , blonde and honey- it all works together to create a movement in this soft colour application. Our Wella trained students use the best colour available and the newest techniques to achieve this customized application.
Pastel ombres are also a huge trend for this year, and if you’re feeling bold, try a neon, vibrant dip-dyed look with our Rusk temporary colours.
