Six Types of Hair Dyeing Techniques

Do you want to change the tone of your hair or illuminate some highlights? Choose between these methods!

Depending on how and where the dye is applied, and the shades are chosen, different effects are achieved. We tell you what each one is based on so that you can discover its characteristics and find the right option for you.

Balayage

The stylist applies the dye by hand and marks it with a brush. It brings light from middle to end, focusing on the latter to achieve the degradé effect and emphasizing the places that most need to be illuminated.

Ombré

The color goes in a very defined gradient from the root to the tips. It starts in a dark brown and ends in a very light blond. The aim is to achieve a shaded contrast.

Only the ends of the hair are dyed. The same method is applied to traditional highlights but in larger areas. The more classic ones consist of a soft gradient that leaves the root with its true color.

Reflections

They are applied in the same way as traditional wicks (with the aluminum foil technique) but more delicately and diffusely. It is only dyed in some areas of the hair, which creates a more subtle look.

Highlights

This technique seeks to create a more natural mane, making the color in very fine highlights, but in large numbers. The idea is to use two or three similar tones to give the illusion that it is the original color of the hair.

Bronde

This is a variant of balayage in which the middle and ends are dyed a light chestnut and not blond. It is a fusion of brown tones with brighter ones, as it seeks to bring light above all to the chestnut manes.
