Balayage highlights are hand painted using a sweeping motion to produce a softer, less noticeable regrowth line than traditional foil highlights. The lightener is concentrated on the surface of each section leaving the underside of the hair strand darker. It gives the hair a very soft dimensional effect reflecting the parts of your hair that would naturally lighten in the sun. This highlight technique can be done on any hair color from blonde to brunette and even red tones.
Foilayage is the technique using foils to incapsulate the Balayage to allow a greater lift where the lightener is applied.
An Ombré is a dramatic two-toned hair color effect gradually blending one color hue to another, usually moving a darker color to a lighter tone.
A Sombré is ideal for brunettes by adding caramel, blonde, golden, or honey tones to create a more subtle and softer color transition than an Ombré. The roots are usually kept your natural hair color, slightly lightening the ends of the hair.
To sum up, choosing the right type of highlighting technique can be challenging as there are many colors and styles to choose from. You just have to know what really matches your mood or personality. Truly, a hairstyle can change an entire disposition. Don’t be afraid to try out highlighting and see how it works for you!

Your hair history and length is the determining factor of what type of hair highlight plan I choose to help you achieve your hair goals.
What chemical treatment (color, highlights, relaxer, keratin) have you done in the past six years?
Your previous chemical services can be a disadvantage to receiving a desired result in one hair session visit.
How often and what do you use for restorative hair maintenance products?
Hair treatment products such as heavy oils, leave-in-conditioner, or products can build up on your hair shaft. The buildup can prevent hair from processing correctly to the desired color. In addition the products can mask underlying dryness of your hair's true state.
Do you want a bold or subtle understated look with your balayage, foilayage, ombré, or sombré?
