Balayage and Ombre will be Hot Hair looks for this Summer. Before you get head into the salon, you need to make sure you are asking for the right colour service.

Balayage and Ombre as hair trends have been with us for a long time now, yet there is still some confusion when it comes to these techniques.

Ombre is the more dramatic of the two effects. Here the ends or mid lengths are coloured in more a block or sold colour. This colour blocks mean that none of your natural hair colour is showing in these areas.

While Balayage is a more subtle natural, look with some of your uncoloured hair still showing in the areas that have coloured. We can vary how dramatic your hair colour result is, by altering the amount of hair we leave uncoloured. With Freehand French Balayage where we use special air developers from L'Oreal Professional we are to give you an even more natural look.

Balayage should be seamless. At St Kilda's Yoshiko Hair we boast the area's most Awarded Colour Team. With our work showcased on television, on stage and in print across australia and around the Globe. Using Freehand, Foils and Sweetmeche techniques along with Smartbond and L'Oreal Professional. With a free consult at st Kilda's luxury salon Yoshiko, we can help determine which look is best for your facial features and lifestyle.
