Ombré or Balayage

Balayage has the meaning “to sweep” in French. The lustrous dimension is created in the hair by hand-painting soft, natural highlights.  The Balayage pieces should be very close and soft at the root leading to a thicker highlight at the ends of the hair.

Ombré means to shadow, and it's a seamless gradation from darker to lighter. 

What's the difference between Balayage and highlights?

Balayage has softer, less noticeable regrowth lines than traditional highlights - the principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks. There's no stripy look like you can get with foil highlights. Balayage emulates the parts of your hair that would naturally lighten in the sun.  Also, Balayage is a freehand technique as no foil or meche are used to create the highlights.
