What is the difference between a balayage and an ombre and highlights?

Highlights and lowlights are used to add colour dimension starting from the root to the tip.

An ombre is used to add dimension by seamlessly melting one colour at your root to another colour at the tip. There is no harsh line where one colour starts and another one ends. The colours flow into each other. The ombre technique has one solid colour at the roots, and a different solid colour on the ends.

Balayage is a free-hand technique used by your stylist to give your hair dimension, usually somewhere in the middle of an ombre and highlights. Where highlights will show distinctive streaks of different colours from roots to tips, and ombre shows a solid colour at the roots, and a different colour at the tips, balayage takes these two techniques and blends them together. You will still have one solid colour at your roots, but the free-hand technique will place varying levels of highlights at different heights in your hair. The highlights get blended seamlessly into the root colour of the hair. In some sections, the root colour will be the same all the way down to the tips of the hair.

Do you use Olapex?

Yes, for an additional €30 we can add Olaplex to the colour or as an treatment, We are always trying to keep your hair as healthy and strong as possible.

How long does a colour appointment take

This depends on the treatment and the present state of your hair. On average it will take 1 to 4 hours. In exceptional cases, for instance long, thick or pre-colourerd hair, the treatment time can be longer.

Can I wash my hair after a colour service?

Yes, as long as it is a shampoo for colour care. This will help you to protect your investment for a longer period of time. In the Salon we sell L’Anza shampoo that is safe to use.

Should I wash my hair before I do a colour treatment?

Yes, clean hair allows products to perform better. Hair build-up (like minerals and dirt) doesn’t allow products to perform at its 100%. Of course we offer a shampoo service in our Salon.
