Ombre hair color is similar to a Balayage but instead of a sun-kissed highlights look, it is a transition of a lighter hair shade from a darker shade of the color.

Ombre comes from the French word: shadow. Unlike a Balayage, with an Ombre there are no dark pieces of hair or undone areas on the bottom to look more natural, instead the color/shade fully transition between the colors to the ends.


Foilyage is a Balayage with a lighter blonde look achieved by performing a hair lifting technique to amplify the hairs color lifting-effect.

Important recommendation to the Bride

  • Wash your hair the day before the wedding and do not blow dry your hair too straight to have a better stay for your all big day.

The trial is absolutely necessary. An up do is not an everyday hair style, in most of the case you need to try several styles to know which one will be yours. On your wedding day you are under stress and have a lot of last minute details to take care of, it is not a good day to decide about your hair style or makeup style

  • When you come with a picture that you find on the internet or in a Bridal Magazine, always have a plan B to give us a chance to help you and offer you another option... (for example, the models up-do's may look more defined on blond hair, or her hair texture & hair abundance etc may be different)

  • Hair styling
