BALAYAGE VS FOIL
Single processing is when a stylist uses only one hair color, and no bleach to create a desired look. This is best for those who are looking to cover up gray hairs, slightly lighten their hair, or go darker.
This is a technique used by stylists to lighten and tone hair color. During this process a stylist will use bleach to lift the hair's natural pigment, and then use a separate color to tone the hair to the desired shade.
Highlighting is a hair color process that uses foils to brighten certain section of your hair. It's a way to create different hair colors that blend together naturally. The stylist uses foil during this technique as the materials works as a heat conductor to help quicken the coloring process without further damaging the hair. Lighter colors can be achieved by using foils vs cellophane. "Babylights" is a technique that uses very fine strokes of color usually around the hair line and top of the head to give your hair a bit more dimension.
This is a technique a stylist uses to highlight your hair, and can be used to achieve many different looks. With balayage, also known as hair painting, the lightener or hair color is painted on in such a way as to create a graduated, natural-looking effect from end to root and is all about creating beautiful blends of multi-dimensional color.
Ombré is a popular look defined by hair that is dark at the root, and blends into a lighter shade as it gets to the ends. This look can be soft and natural, also called sombre, or bright and dramatic. No matter what color you choose this technique creates a seamless, blended "grown out" look. The stylist can use a backcombing and foil technique, balayage or hair painting technique to achieve this look.
