Ombré or Balayage – Which Hair Colour Is Right For Me?

Common questions we hear at Haringtons are what is the difference between balayage and ombré? and what is colour melting?  Now the confusion can be laid to rest as our expert colour technicians will explain it all.  

Try Balayage for Sun-Kissed Hair Colour

The word ‘balayage’ means to “paint” or “sweep” in French. It involves using a freehand technique to add your hair colour exactly where you want it for a natural looking sun-kissed result. Balayage works on both dark and light hair – whether it is subtle or striking, and we can apply it in a way that looks natural to frame your face and brighten your features.

The Best Ombré Hair Colours at Haringtons Hairdressing Salons

The word ombré is derived from the French term for ‘shadow’ and relates to the defined contrast in colour we can achieve on your hair.  Ombré can be subtle or bold – perhaps a dramatic ‘two tone’ effect is what you are after with a bold fashion colour… Whatever your desire, come and talk to our hair colour experts who can help you find the right hair colour for you.  

Colour Melting at Haringtons Hairdressers

Colour melting blends lots of shades of hair colour with your base hair colour. Regardless of whether you are naturally a blonde, brunette or red-head, we can add several shades which melt in beautifully for a seamless transition in hair colour.  Colour melting also works if you have a fashion colour as your base – perhaps a pretty pink, lilac or mermaid blue and greens like the colour melt we achieved in the picture below.
