The Balayage & Ombré Colour Experts Near Me


Balayage Hair Colour

Balayage is an excellent hair colour technique which involves your House of Colour expert painting the colour onto your hair in a freehand manner to accentuate your hairstyle and facial features. Balayage gives your hair a subtle colour finish that looks sun-kissed and natural. The effect of balayage is less obvious than traditional foil highlights, with a much less noticeable root regrowth - making it a low maintenance hair colour option. Balayage can be used on all hair colours, even grey hair colour, and can be a fun way to add vibrant fashion colours to your hair!

Ombré Hair Colour

An ombré hair colour is usually more obvious than balayage, so you can see the colour difference between the tones used.  The word ombré comes from the French word that means “shadow” or “shade.”  The most popular types of ombré are traditional ombré and reverse ombré. Traditional ombré has a lighter colour at the tips of your hair than at the roots, while a reverse ombré has darker tips and lighter roots. Vibrant fashion shades such as pinks and purples can also look fantastic in an ombré style.
