Means 'shaded' or 'shading'. It is darker at the roots and gradually gets lighter from the mid shaft at to ends. This gorgeous piece here by senior stylist Elize Lim (Bugis), is an example of a reverse ombre!
2. SOMBRE A softer version of Ombre - the appearance of dark roots is less harsh than before and colour is more seamlessly blended together. Hair colour by leading stylist Ivan Kan (313 Somerset).
3. COLOR MELT
Imagine the sight of crayons melted together - this is a technique that blends highlights with base color to reduce harsh lines. Senior stylist Jay Ang (Bugis) used multiple shades to create this "melted" effect.
4. BABYLIGHTS Very fine, subtle highlights that are meant to look like the natural hair colour of children. Effortless chic creation by senior stylist Eric (Bugis).
5. BALAYAGE Means to "sweep" or to "paint" in french. It allows for a sun-kissed, natural looking hair color with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. Hair colour by senior stylist Linus Lee (Wisma).
