What are Babylights?
Tender, delicate strands in blonde – as if kissed by the sun. With Babylights, the hair is only lightened slightly by a few blonde accents. Pure naturalness and romance! Normally the highlights are tinted around the face so that the eyes and cheeks can be seen to their best advantage. This colouring method is particularly gentle on the hair and the colour transitions are very gentle and girlish.
Balayage or strobing?
With the hip balayage technique, the hairdresser becomes a real painter. “Balayer” means “sweep” in French, by the way. The dyeing technique was called that by trendsetters because the actual dyeing of the individual strands is carried out by the hairdresser through such fege movements.
So, quite different from conventional film strands. Similar to Babylights, Balayage’s hair looks natural. This dyeing technique is suitable for almost all hair lengths and hairstyles. Beautiful curls will be spiced up just as beautifully as smooth hair or waves.
Hair strobing has also been on everyone’s lips for some time now. Very often even both dyeing techniques are used as synonyms and many don’t even know where the difference actually lies. Strobing was originally created as a make-up trend. This is basically about highlighting important parts of the face with more shine (with special creams, powders or pencils). The same principle now also applies to hair styled by strobing. In other words: Hair Strobing is a successful mixture of balayage and foil babylights. Simply marvellous!
Ombre Blond, reinterpreted!
To clarify any misunderstandings once again: Ombre Blond is not just Ombre Blond! What used to be a strict two-tone colour gradient from the darker hairline to the lighter hair ends has now been completely reinterpreted. Some hairstyle connoisseurs often speak of ombre blond with highlights or even sombre – a much milder variant of ombre.
Ombre Blond & Co. have clearly conquered not only the international catwalks worldwide, but also the heart of every fashion-conscious woman, wherever there is a real blonde. Treat yourself to a summery, natural look with the colouring technique of your choice. Maybe you just want to look like you’ve been kissed by the sun, or maybe you prefer stronger blonde highlights that make your face shine?
