Balayage Vs. Ombre Vs. Sombre
People are always confused by these terms. Now we will explain some of them. There are different highlighting techniques besides balayage including ombre and sombre. So, what are these techniques, and which one is best for you?

Let’s begin with ombre wig. In French, this means “shade,” or “shadow”. This kind of highlighting is usually dark at the top section and lighter at the bottom. What most people like about ombre is that the hair color could change as the hair grows. Additionally, the ombre hair color is inexpensive. So, if you like to emphasize your hair, an ombre is a good choice. However, keep in mind that you need to have healthy hair, otherwise your hair will appear dull and the color will fade quickly.

Senior Hairstylists say that sombre is the softer version of ombre as seen in the photo above. The sombre color seems to blend with the natural color of the hair, and its dark color is not accentuated that much. The sombre technique has more shades and tones, adding more dimensions and texture to the hair. For example, the ends of sombre are one to two levels lighter than the base color.

Different from these two, balayage is a More hierarchical sense color. If you want to create a more natural look that gives your hair a soft touch, then balayage is perfect for you. Balayage incorporates freehand painting that makes it unique from other techniques.You can find glueless wig with blonde balayage highlights color from nadula.com.
