Hair Colour Terminology Guide – From Colour Glossing to Balayage…

Hair Colour 101: GOLSONs Guide To Beautiful Hair Colour
Usually used to lighten the hair, but can also be use to add rich brown tones, pastels, or even vibrant colours. For touching up the roots of already coloured hair or lightening a darker base. Looks natural as the colour grows out as there is no definite line between colour and regrowth. can be used with 1 or more colours depending on look going for

Toner: When you’ve pre lightened the hair, highlighted or full head, it’s always recommended that you use a toner on the hair as it naturalises any yellow/brassy tones.  To get a cool ash blonde, you need to lift with pre lightener to the correct level then tone to neutralise and get the correct tone. Which is why we call it a toner.

Colour glossing: Preferably used on virgin or coloured hair on a similar base shade without grey to create tone and shine. Leaves a glossy finish and can add depth or richness to the colour.

Ombre: A technique of lightening the hair and leaving a darker base so you can see the transition from dark to light, or dark to pastel.

Balayage: Similar to ombre but looks more subtle and blended. harder to detect the transition from dark to light as the dark has light scattered through.
