Balayage Ombre

I just wanted a hair cut and highlights for my hair to have a new look in the coming New Year. Without much knowledge in hair colour, the creative stylist suggested me to go for a Balayage style of hair colouring. I though highlights are all the same technique. But when she explained that its different and it suited me for a fresh, younger looking look, I did not hesitat to try it.

balayage
ˈbalɪjɑːʒ/
noun
  1. a technique for highlighting hair in which the dye is painted on in such a way as to create a graduated, natural-looking effect.

No regrets, loving my hair colour. Sherlin Yap, the hair artist who did this is really expert and professional in her craft. I will definitely comeback to this salon and look for hair stylist Sherlin Yap (though I think most of the stylist at their salon are also good and well trained)
