Many of us wish for beautiful blond locks, even though they’re not naturally blond. Luckily the transformation is possible in the hands of a talented stylist. We have a lot of experience with different kind of bleaching processes, with a gorgeous result that suits for the customers beautifully.
Especially when bleaching a darker base there are multiple stages in the process and it’s really tough for the hair. That’s why we recommend Olaplex treatment with bleaching. Olaplex rebuilds broken hair and prevents new hair damage during bleaching. You can read more about our Olaplex treatments here.
If you’re hoping for more symmetric highlights, foils could be a great option for you. In this technique your hair is separated into suitable size sections and the colour is applied on your wisps on the foil. The sections may be thin or thick depending on the desired look. As the foils are folded, the toner starts to act inside the foil. The foil prevents toner from spreading all over your hair and keeps the toner moist so that it doesn’t dry out and deteriorate. With this technique the result will be strict and neat, and highlights will be exactly where they were wanted to be.
Babylights are fine and multicoloured highlights that are meant to look like child’s sun-brightened summer hair. If you desire for fresh and natural hair, babylights is the right technique for you. In order to get a beautiful result, you should choose a toner only one or two degrees lighter than your own hair, for the wisps near your face and roots. Essential in this technique are the thin hair sections and the small space between them. Highlights will blend smoothly with the base colour resulting a natural look. Babylights are suitable for all hair colours. These highlights are meant to be subtle, so the effect of the colour substance is not enhanced by heat. This highlighting technique adds to the abundance of the hair, making it ideal for delicate and thin hair.
The French professionals developed this stunning style to colour your hair by painting it with different kind of brushes. The term Balayage comes from French word balayer which means sweeping. Balayage is known all over the world and it’s perfect for free hand colouring.
The traditional colouring technique is done by separating wisps and they are coloured individually from the roots to the ends. In the balayage technique the stylist holds your hair freely on their palm and paints your hair like a real piece of art on a canvas. The colour will fade beautifully from roots all the way to the ends so that the contrast between them is smooth and natural. Your hair will look like it’s naturally blond by the sunlight. This technique will highlight your features and it’s perfect for creating gorgeous effects.
It’s possible to change the intensity of the colour from delicate to intense by using different brushes depending on your hair type. The combination of dark and light tones produces very beautiful natural results. By choosing dark or light tones based on your features, it’s easy to highlight cheekbones, for example. Balayage is basically makeup for your hair – or makeup for your face by using your hair!
By colouring your hair with balayage technique you don’t need to visit your stylist that often since the colour of your hair will fade naturally. No more root growth!

Ombré or balayage? Balayage or ombré? Both styles are fairly easy to maintain the colour as these methods won’t create clear line between the dyed hair and your own colour. As balayage hair is made by sweeping and ombré is made gradually. In ombré colouring the lightening begins by applying the bleach first in the hair ends horizontally and then fading the line between the coloured hair and your own hair by spreading the colour substance upwards towards the roots. In ombré the colour changes more visibly so it’s easier to see the difference in colour than in balayage.
In French, ombré means gradually toned or colour that is shaded, so the name describes the end result well.
