You’re a multi-dimensional person, and you expect your hair to reflect your colourful personality. When you choose one of our specialty colour treatments, you’ll walk out feeling your natural beauty has been magnified, in hues that match your personality and attitude.


Highlights: Color that gets noticed.  Love your color, but looking to punch it up? Highlights enhance your hair color with either subtle dimensional tones or artistic splashes of bright, make-a-statement shades.


Low lights: Hair color lacking depth or too bright? This is one of the best hair color services as it gives the most natural effect to your hair color. If you love the look of highlighting, but don’t want an overly dramatic look, low lights are the way to go.


What is ombre hair color?

Ombre is a gradient of hair color that combines darker roots with lighter ends. Ombre takes its name from the French for "shadow" or "shade." Older two-toned ombre looks offered a stark division between the dark roots and light ends. Nowadays, it's more common to see a subtle transition from dark to light—a transition created with a balayage hair-painting technique.


So what's the difference between ombre and balayage? Ombre is a type of hair color, whereas balayage is a coloring technique that can be used to create subtle ombre hair.


Is ombre hair right for me?

Though ombre hair is suited to complexions of all shades, only careful consultation with a professional stylist can determine which colors will flatter your look. For example, those with darker skin can shoot for deep reds and coppers, while fairer tones can experiment with blondes and caramel colors. Daredevils of all skin types can turn to unnatural hues such as pink and blue for an even more dramatic effect.


Be forewarned that although the ombre look is similar to that of grown-out highlights, previously color-treated hair will often need at least some color correction to achieve the desired effect. Similarly, complex color combinations can require more frequent touch-ups to maintain this seemingly low-maintenance look. Color-treated shampoos and conditioners can help you get the most mileage out of ombre tresses, as can regular coats of gloss.
