All you need to know about ombre hair

In recent seasons, ombre hair has made a comeback. Stars or influencers, they all fell in love with this hair trend. And we understand why ! Hard to resist this ultra-luminous coloring with the natural effect of returning from vacation and very easy to maintain. Not yet convinced? DESSANGE tells you all about ombre hair.

What is ombre hair?

Ombre hair is a coloring technique giving an impression of gradient. The colorist keeps a good length of roots naturally and lightens the lengths little by little to the ends. If this technique is performed well, there is no clear demarcation between the (de) staining steps, the difference is gradual.

Often confused with tie and dye, ombre hair is distinguished by a perfect blurring between different colours like the effect of a natural fading coming back from vacation. The tie and dye, it presents a much more marked demarcation between the base and the tips.

Which ombré hair to choose?

To choose your ombre hair, ask yourself what effect you want? For a natural look, it is better to stay true to your skin tone and decline warm nuances and earthy tones.

Those who want a more daring rendering can contrast the nuances or even try the very flashy colored tips.

The shaded hair is achievable on all skin tones but people with very light blond hair will not have much interest in succumbing to this trend. On the other hand, ombre hair will look great on brown to light brown hair. The colored or discolored bases can also try it without fear.

Talk to a professional to avoid duds. Your DESSANGE colorist hairdresser will advise you on the shades and shades to choose according to your wishes and will choose its application technique.

What is the difference between balayage and ombre hair?

The difference between an ombré hair and a balayage is the application of the color: on the lengths or on the entire hair. The ombre hair lightens the lengths thanks to a coloring on the ends which gradually blends with the roots. Balayage lightens the color by fading some strands.

Sweeping is a technique which therefore consists of sweep the color through the hair to add light, depending on the desired effect. Indeed, there are several types of scans. The Californian Balayage invention DESSANGE, is done with a brush and performed in the open air on long hair. It is applied to the surface of the hair, not to the depth, to obtain dark roots and lighter ends. This technique brings a solar and natural result for a “return from vacation” effect.

In order to be able to create a Californian Balayage on all hair lengths and colors, other techniques have been developed. That of Techno sweep allows to create a Californian on short hair : the hair is backcombed and the color is laid by hand along the length and ends.

Unlike scanning, ombre hair is not recommended for short hair. To lighten a short haircut, prefer a Sunlight or a Flash Balayage for example.

What maintenance for ombre hair?

The advantage of an ombré hair is that it is very low maintenance if at all. The roots are quite marked from the start, so there is no fear of regrowth. No need to make an appointment with your hairdresser every month.

On the other hand, do not ignore care. Indeed, the shaded hair remains a discoloration which can weaken the hair. In order to avoid the straw effect on dry hair, use shampoos for colored and / or swept hair during each wash, and make every week moisturizing masks.
