Balayage And Ombre Hair | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Look out for new words in hair styling!
Ombre is a style, it’s a transition of a lighter shade from a darker shade. Balayage is technique. It come from the French word “to sweep”. With this technique dark pieces of hair are left at the bottom to create dimension and a natural sun-kissed look.  Both hair colorings are variegated, extravagant, luminous and an ensemble of colors never done before. It seems one color is no longer accepted. Hair stylists are getting creative combining many colors in one hair do.

Have I ever had the urge to dye my hair purple? Yes, many times and I refrained each time from doing it. I am afraid of the level of chemicals that will go in my hair and not only that, something else prevented me from doing it: matching clothes in all the colors I like to a dual or multiple hair coloring would be a real challenge. I would feel locked in a few clothes color solutions and no longer free to do as I please.

Before your hair go under a major color restyle, think about a few issues. You chose an extravagant, modern hair color, let’s say purple and silver.
Will it suit your skin coloration?
With the new hair color, how many colors must you eliminate from your wardrobe?
Is it worth to redo your wardrobe (unless your clothes are outdated) just because your new hair color doesn’t match anything you have?

While I am writing this post, I am looking at this ensemble of flowers left casually on the table waiting to do something with it and I am noticing the colors are very similar to a Balayage Hair Coloring, composed of purple and silver-gray (shown in my board). Hair colored this way is very attractive, but the combination of purple and gray will add years to your face, unless you wear the right color clothes. The usual black will look good, however do you want to wear only black for the duration of your dual coloring, when there are so many luminous colors to choose from? In my palette, I selected colors that will play a lively game with clothes and the gray in the dual colored hair, especially if your eyes are blue.

Use colors to your advantage, even grays are elegant when played out right and mixed with the right colors. Ciao,
Valentina

    Love it, just re-dyed my hair at the weekend so am a very vivid purple right now, more Cadbury’s than lavender lol but I have to say I did think about the colour combination thing after our chat on your previous post and have decided to be more bold, go for colours that clash as well as compliment, if you wish to see how I get on follow my instagram, I am going to upgrade the profile pictures soon as I was pink and blonde at the time I set them https://www.instagram.com/paulaacton/

    I’ve actually never dyed my hair before. Always dark brown, always natural! As you mentioned, lots of chemicals go into your hair when you colour it, and I don’t want to think of the damage that will be done to my hair. Then again, there are so many hair care products out there today. I always like a choppy, layered hair cut and love to tease the top my hair for an edgy look 🙂
