We get asked this question a lot… What’s the difference between ombre and balayage?

To put it simply, ombre is a more bold, ‘dip dye’ kind of look; more colour through the ends of the hair and balayage is a softer, grown out highlight, sun kissed affect.

At Brandon May, we’ve been doing a lot of these lately, as you can see on our Instagram pictures. A lot of you have been recently leaning towards a lower-maintenance balayage, and you can choose a range of different colours to suit your skin tone.

We think the reason it’s so popular is that it’s a way for people to experiment with colour if they’ve never tried it and brunette’s can go lighter without the root upkeep and blondes can go a bit darker without having to lose that lightness that they love. It really is a trend for everyone; even some of our more mature guests have tried some  subtle versions of this trend.Balayage and Ombre Hair Machester
