1. Ombre Vs. Balayage: Knowing the Difference
This balayage color is a great choice for someone not wanting a dramatic change. While an ombre leaves the ends a fully different color than the roots, a balayage is a technique that leaves a similar effect. The ends still contain some darker pieces when this technique is used. The result is a more natural looking highlight, that is easier to care for.
2. Summer Highlights And Lowlights: Ombre Style
This ombre utilizes multiple colors to enhance the effect. The look is gorgeous but would take more maintenance than the balayage. By adding highlights and lowlights into the hair, the contrast of the colors makes for a look that will catch the sun. This is a great way to prevent a washed-out look for those with an ivory skin tone who want to try ombre hair.
