Balayage is another word used for highlighting the hair. Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or stroke. When you highlight the hair or make an area lighter & brighter it makes the hair pop and draws your eye to it. When you make hair darker or deeper (low lights) it adds shadow and depth to a style.
To clear up any confusion between Ombre & balayage. Ombre is a look. It’s a progression from lightness to darkness and can be done in any color. For example dark brown to light blonde.
And, yes we do Balayage ombre all the time!
