Ombre Dip Dye Balayage are all hair coloring techniques. They are also words that just roll off the tongue of your stylist or color technician when you visit the salon for a hair color. To be sure that you will walk out of the salon with the look you want gen up on the difference between the color techniques.
Ombre Dip Dye and Balayage are all what you could refer to as gradient hair coloring applications. And these gradient colors definitely look like they are here to stay with us in one form or another. Over time the technique maybe upgraded and changed slightly. For instance an Ombre backlash has arrived so now we see the word Sombre color is being used a lot. Sombre color is in fact just a more refined and softer take on an Ombre feel.
The looks that these color techniques produce tend to be more in line with a sun kissed effect or on just giving an unkempt feel to your hair.
And are now some of the top five hair coloring requests in salons.
They are very individual in there finished look so if you are thinking of having an Ombre Dip Dye or Balayage look for your hair. I would suggest you have one or two pictures with the sort of feel you are after. This way you can give your hairstylist an idea on your take of that look.
The Diffrence Between Ombre Dip Dye and Balayage Hair Color.
Ombre is in fact a French word meaning to shade or shaded.
The look would give your hair a graduation from darker roots to lighter ends. Your hair would have color applied roughly on the end one third to two thirds of your hair.
Sections of your hair would be backcombed so as to help achieve a subtle color fade. Color would then only placed on the remaining ends of the hair.
The amount of lighter color you would finally see can be controlled by the amount of backcombing that is placed in each section.
Ombre color is one of the earlier gradient techniques that is still popular today. Although it is now slowly morphing into what is known as Sombre.
Now Sombre coloring tends to be more of a subtler graduation from roots to ends. The key being the use of more colors from the dark hue of your roots.
Think of tones that are only a few shades lighter and a few shades darker than your natural base color. By subtly weaving them in through the lengths you will have less of an abrupt contrast at the ends.
Dip Dye Hair.
A Dip Dye effect on your hair has no graduation of color such as achieved in an Ombre or Balayage effect.
Instead it will create a quite dramatic line. Your hair will literally look as if it has been dipped into a pot of hair color.
Usually used with brighter vibrant colors or tones such as blue pink or pastel shades. Applied to the bottom third or just your hair tips. So as to achieve a very strong contrast on the lower tips of your hair.
The Dip Dye color look works extremely well on bob length and longer hair especially so on blunt haircuts.
Balayage a French word meaning to sweep or paint.
There should be no hard demarcation line in a balayaged hair color.
Your hairstylist will work with the brush in a sweeping manner so as to produce a gradual change in color as they progress down your hair.
A Balayage look on your hair will look great if you have a head of natural loose curls or waves. And fantastic if you wear your hair in a beachy tousled look.
As in the light you will see the color variations rippling through your hair.
A Balayage color starts from higher up your hair than if you had an Ombre effect. The look being a gradual blend of color from near the roots of your head to a stronger more intense color at the ends.
This technique is suitable for short or long hair looks that flow. Strong hair cut shapes such as a bob require a stronger color look such as a Dip Dye to show off the cut.
