Defining Color Terms

Have you noticed that there are a lot of new names for ways to color your hair, like Balayage, Ombre, Sombre? What does it all mean? Our education director and expert colorist, Hannah Brockman, has the answers:

Balayage (bah-lee-AHZGE)

Color1

From the French word, meaning “to sweep or paint,” color is applied to the hair with a freehand technique, painting on color to create soft highlights. This technique creates a natural sun-kissed look with less noticeable regrowth lines, making the color easy to maintain. Balayage is perfect for all hair types and lengths.

Ombre’ (äm’brā’)

Color2

Another French word, meaning “to shade,” this technique blends color or tones in a soft transition from dark to light. Usually, darker tones are applied closer to the root of the hair, with the color gradually lightening as it moves towards the end of the strand.  Reverse ombre’ is just the opposite, keeping lightness around the face with the tone becoming darker at the ends.  Ombre’ works best on longer hair lengths.

Sombre (säm’brā’)

Color3

What many are calling the next big trend in color, this technique takes ombre’ softer for a subtle blended graduation and a more natural look. Also called color melting, lighter pieces are taken up higher on the hair, especially around the face, with ribbons of color running through the lower lengths to enhance natural texture and layering in the cut. Still best on longer lengths of hair, the sombre technique is perfect for blondes and brunettes who want a softer transition into color.

Want to know which of these techniques will look the best on you? Our color consultations are always complimentary! So stop by or call us at 316-267-8000 to reserve a little time and talk to our expert stylists about updating your color.

Going Back to our Roots

Thanks to all of out fabulous clients and talented staff for 22 years in business! To celebrate they thought we’d post some pictures what it all looked like in the beginning. Here’s to the memories from 1992!

Painting the mural was a big job! Part of the reason we picked our location at Douglas & Emporia was our dream of having a fun mural.
