Balayage vs Ombré : What is the difference?

One of our most popular types of hair coloring technique is Balayage and Ombre! 
Most people are not sure what one to choose. Well were going to help you understand the two. Ombre has been the most popular however,balayage had also joined the beauty trends and is becoming high demand.

Ombré is a dark color fading lighter. They may be different colors in general but it is 
supposed to be a smooth, transitioning gradient (not a dip-dye, where there is a sharp line separating the two). You can also try a reverse Ombre. 

Now balayage is a bit similar but definitely not the same. Typically balayage is all about looking natural. The front (your bangs area) and the ends of your hair (especially the top layer where the sun hits) are lighter than the rest. They should be subtle - not as dramatic as the ombré. In general, this approach is a free-hand dying process instead of the way ombré is even all over. Both may be a DIY project, however, it may be a harder process to do alone. In order to lighten, you must use bleach but we have an amazing product called olaplex and it keeps your hair from breaking while using the bleach. So normally we can take you much lighter then before and with no Breakage. That's the best part.

Balayage is more of a subtle natural look and usually lighter in the front. Imagine how hair would appear to look from natural sunlight as well as vertical free hand stands of hair; similar to highlights. Ombré is a little more dramatic, the dye basically goes straight across but still a gradient. Sometimes they may really include both, but usually more of one than the other.

Will you give one a try? Which one do you like better?

Coconut oil has been all the rage lately, especially for moisturizing our long locks. But before this tasty fruit oil blew up, it was all about the Morrocan Argan oil, which has been in the hair market for years in an effort to combat hair dryness. But now, a new product its making it's way—Moroccanoil's former CEO is releasing a new line of hair care called Pai-Shau, which uses a mix of different teas.
The line, which contains a serum, shampoo, conditioner, mask, and styling cream, is made up of an "exotic tea complex," consisting of "a mix of black tea, green tea, pu-erh tea, white tea and African red leaf tea," The benefits? It's supposed to make your hair shiny, elastic, and strong.
The story behind this discovery goes like this: co-founder and CEO of Pai-Shau Zohar Paz went on a trip to Vietnam and witnessed an ancient bathing ritual involving tea that he wanted to bring back to North America,  The line will be released at select salons only.
Best hair product line out, The tea has multiple benefits for your hair, including hair growth, reducing dandruff, increased shine, and nurturing split ends. You can be assured that this new line is of the highest caliber,  Paz told his chemist that there was no budget. With that said, the line's price point doesn't seem too unreasonable, ranging between $26-$45. All in all, it's definitely comparable to most high-end hair care lines.
