Balayage is a French hair coloring technique where the color is painted on the hair by hand as opposed to the old school highlighting methods with foils and cap highlighting. The free-hand application allows to achieve a more natural and modern effect with subtle transitions between the chosen hues, whether blonde, brunette, red or unnatural colors, such as popular pastels and even neons.
Ombre is great for the more daring girl, it is definitely more noticeable and typically more maintenance. Ombre is kind of like color blocking, there are no dark pieces left on the bottom to help keep it natural, just a nice transition between the colors.
