Single process is when only one hair color is used, with no lightener, to create a desired look. This is best for those who are looking to cover up gray hair, refresh existing color, or go darker.
BLEACH & TONE
Bleach and tone is used to lighten and tone hair color. During this process, lightener is used to lift the hair's natural pigment and then a separate toner is applied for a desired shade. For those looking for bold, bright coloring (i.e. platinum blondes).
Highlights are when select strands of hair are woven and lightened from the root to the ends leaving some natural hair in between. The process is done by applying lightener to the strands of hair, which are then folded in foil. Highlights are a great way to create hair color that blends together to give an overall brighter look.
Babylights are superfine highlights that were previously known as “fine foils”. With this color technique, hair is separated into tiny sections, maybe only a couple of strands each, that blend right into the roots to achieve a natural look that’s meant to mimic the gorgeous, natural highlights you had as a kid. Babylights are often incorporated into a balayage service especially around hair lines and partings where hair would naturally be lighter.
Ombre is a technique used to blend two different hair colors seamlessly. Ombre is when hair color gradually fades from dark to light, concentrating the lightening on the ends of the hair. What makes it different from balayage is that there is no blending of the two shades, just a stunning contrast of one hue to another.
Balayage is a free-hand painting technique used in which lightener is painted onto sections of hair in a sweeping motion, blending the shades for a more natural multi-tonal and sun-kissed result. The process is done by painting lightener to the sections of hair without using foil (some techniques incorporate plastic wrap and or strips of cotton to keep the sections separated). It's a great way to add subtle brightness to the hair.
This has been one of the hottest color techniques of the past couple of years because as hair grows out, it looks more natural and subtle than your typical foil highlight color.
Root smudge is the latest technique where the roots are seamlessly blended “smudged” into the highlights or balayage, effectively blurring where the roots end and color begins. It incorporates your roots as part of the overall look in a gorgeous way.
