Thinking about adding color to your hair? Want it to flourish like your favorite Hollywood star? Well, hair is intriguing because of the look it can give you and the dimensions it adds to your face. Choosing the style you prefer is down to personal expectations. Do you have a preferred look you are going for? Do you have maintenance requirements? There are many variables and making a choice is not easy. Look at a few real-life examples to see what you could end up going with.

There are three types most people prefer to go with, and that would be the ombre, sombre, and balayage styles. What does each one provide? Here are the comparisons between each style to help you decided which is best for you.


With the ombre, you are looking at stark lines, so it is going to be clear where the transition is beginning from. There is a clear progression from one place of the head to the other. This is done on purpose for added effect. The ombre is ideal for those who love to work on their hair and will want to keep coming back to the salon all the time. It is reserved for those who want to make sure people notice the color and don't want to be reserved about what they are getting.

The ombre is the hardest to maintain. You might have to keep coming back for touchups because of the contrast from top to bottom. It will become noticeable when you have not had work done on it in the long-run.


When it comes to the sombre, you are going for a similar transition, but it is going to be far more gradual and reserved. The color is going to be spread to the bottom, but not as aggressively as seen with the ombre. The sombre is going to add color, but is more for those who want the contrast, but are lazier when it comes to how they maintain it.

The sombre is easier in this regard. It still gives you that contrast you are going for, but it does not bother you when it comes to maintenance. You might have to go in for touchups here and there, but not as excessively.


The final option would be the balayage, and this is where the color will look natural. It is going to be placed using a brush on a select few strands to create a natural look.
The balayage is for those who want a natural look that is not going to trouble them at all. They won't even have to look at styling their hair because it will be that natural.

The balayage is the best. You won't feel like maintenance is needed until your next haircut. It is that naturally placed into your hair.

Any of these 3 options are an outstanding choice and will dictate how you feel about your beauty, hair and yourself. You don't want to add color and then regret it, so choosing between these three options should be done with care. Also, always look to speak to our master stylist to see what he recommends.

I have made about 5 or 6 appointments now over the last few months with Rafi and I've only had to give him specifics as to the style I wanted the first time... He's very attentive and knows exactly what I want now, without having to tell him!

After not being able to find my match in hairdressers, my friend referred me to Rafi at One Salon. Rafi brought me back to the blonde I had been missing from a brunette bayalage. Not only is he amazing with color corrections and highlights, he will listen to what you are wanting to do with your hair and provide his professional opinion to help you find what style is right for you. Recently Rafi cut my long hair to a short A-line, and I can't believe I haven't done it sooner! I'm so happy with my hair.

I have never left a hair salon place with a happy face but this time I really loved the new look that he gave me. His work is amazing and super clean.
